Penn State Pre-Med Sues Over Probe of Sexual Misconduct Claim

A Penn State pre-med student claims in a federal lawsuit that his lifelong goal of being a physician was ended by what he calls an unfair investigation into allegations he sexually abused a female student.

The California student identified only as John Doe says in a federal complaint filed last week that administrators engaged in ``a massively unfair and biased'' investigation that resulted in his suspension through the fall semester.

The defendants are the school, its board, the university president and other officials.

A Penn State spokeswoman offered no immediate comment.

John Doe and the alleged victim were both enrolled in an elite program that funnels undergraduates to a medical school after three years.

He denies the allegation and argues the investigation violated his constitutional right to due process.
