Former Yale team captain Jack Montague is allowed to continue suit against university

After being found guilty of violating Yale University’s sexual misconduct policy in the winter of 2016 and expelled a few months prior to his graduation, former basketball captain Jack Montague sued the school in June of 2016.  The suit, which requested a return to the school and monetary damages, claimed the University’s treatment of Montague was “wrong, unfairly determined, arbitrary and excessive by any rational measure,” while accusing the school of breach of contract, Title IX violations, breach of confidentiality and defamation.
