Four Current and Former Brown University Students File Federal Class Action Alleging Institutional Failures Enabling Pattern of Sexual Abuse at Prestigious Ivy League School

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (August 9, 2021) – Four women who are current or recent students at Brown University have filed a federal class action complaint against the Ivy League school alleging it has systematically and repeatedly failed to protect women from harm, including rape, “despite knowledge that sexual assault on its campus is endemic.” ... The case was filed on August 6 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island.  If granted, the prospective class would include all women – estimated at upwards of 4,000 – who attended Brown starting in 2018 and were survivors of sexual violence and were then further traumatized by the “complete neglect and dysfunction” of the university’s sexual misconduct response program.
