I was a student at the University of Michigan, and I was falsely accused of unwanted sexual contact. UM investigated and determined that I had not violated the policy. However, at the start of the investigation, UM placed a hold on my academic transcripts without informing me and giving me a preliminary hearing. Did the hold violate my rights to due process? How could I feel like I would get a fair hearing if they had already taken punitive action against me?
I do not have any hard evidence of damages from the hold. The Interim Procedure allows interim sanctions that protect the community, the complainant or me.
