Harvard Sanctions Suits Employ Unusual Legal Arguments

Lawsuit Press Conference 1Plaintiffs in twin suits are using creative legal strategies to argue against Harvard’s sanctions that prohibit members of single-gender final clubs and Greek organizations from holding campus leadership positions, varsity team athletic captaincies, and from receiving College endorsement for prestigious fellowships.

The federal suit alleges that the sanctions amount to sex-based discrimination – violating Title IX and the United States Constitution.

“At the end of the day, the fraternities are going to lose – Just a question of timing.”
