Wandering Eye: The University of Oregon's shady behavior in a sexual-assault case, new e-cig data, and moreStory | Mar 4, 2015 | 9:06 AMBack in January, a sexual-assault survivor at University of Oregon filed a Title IX lawsuit against the school for its handling of her case, which involved three basketball players cornering her in a bathroom and raping her multiple times. The school had filed a counterclaim against her that sought to recover legal expenses from the complainant. Though the university later dropped the counterclaim, Katie Rose Guest Pryal points out in The Chronicle of Higher Education an "ugly, frightening sliver" of a legal quirk in the case: "The Oregon administration accessed the rape survivor's therapy records from its counseling center and handed them over to its general counsel's office to help them defend against her lawsuit. They were using her own post-rape therapy records against her." You would presume that such records would be protected by medical privilege, but it turns out that, thanks to a loophole in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, universities can use the records from their campus health clinics without a student's consent in a few instances, including when the student sues the institution. The columnist's advice? "Students: Don't go to your college counseling center to seek therapy. Go to an off-site counseling center. If, God forbid, you've been sexually assaulted, try to find a rape-crisis center . . . You simply do not have adequate privacy protections if you go to a college-provided counselor. Sorry. (Or, in the University of Oregon's case, sorry not sorry.)" (Anna Walsh)
