2 - The Michigan Daily - Tuesday, April 18, 1995
Continued from page 12.
The only open code case occurred
in February: the case of Melanie
Welch, an American culture doctoral
student. Welch's neighbor in
Northwood housing, Yaakov Lavie,
jrought her up on charges of assault.
Both Welch and Lavie agreed to an
Welch filed last week to appeal her
case - only the third case to be ap-
pealed in the code's two-year history.
The report released yesterday to
the University Board of Regents con-
tains statistics about cases filed under
the code since its instatement as an
interim policy on Jan. 1, 1993.
According to the report, Antieau
has taken action on 300 of the 434
contacts made with her.
Some of the other 134 contacts
involved incidents that were not vio-
lations of the code or were filed
more than six months after the inci-
dent. Others involved accused
people whose identities could not
be determined, or people who chose
not to file a complaint.
Of the 300 cases on which
Antieau took action, only 128 be-
came complaints - the rest were
referred to other departments, the
complainants withdrew, or the cases
were first-time accusations of sub-
stance abuse, for which Antieau
wrote warning letters.
Two students have been expelled
from the University under the code -
after appeal, one of the expulsions
was reduced to a suspension. Four
students have been suspended in all.

about our panel of 50 being com-
The code is not so specific about the
method of selection of six panelists.
"The hearing board will consist of
six students. ... The chair selects a
hearing panel by lot from the eligible
pool of panelists," the statement says.
Antieau said yesterday she does
not give any advice to the hearing
chair and there are no guidelines as to
how to select the six panelists.
"We do not tell them how to
select the panel. We just hand them
the 50 and say, 'Give me six,"'
The list of 50 panelists Antieau
sends to the hearing chair includes the
panelists' social security numbers,
gender, ethnicity and class standing.
"They don't have any names,"
When asked whether he thought
his method of selection was a code
violation, Bauland said, "It doesn't
provide for or against it. The kids are
chosen so that it is pretty much at
Bauland said that his second selec-
tion of panelists had a disproportionate
number of undergraduate males.
"We changed it so that it would be
more mixed," Bauland said.
Antieau said, "My understand-
ing was that the panel should be
representative of the entire student
Michigan Student Assembly Presi-
dent Flint Wainess said, "I asked her
whether a scenario such as what we're
seeing in the Welch case could unfold,
and she said no."
"Mary Lou continues to administer
the code in an arbitrary and autocratic
matter," Wainess said.
Anybody involved in the case -
including the complainant, accused
party and the hearing chair - can
challenge the list of panelists if they
can show that a panelist is biased.
"If there's a challenge, it would
have to be articulable - they have
to be able to tell us what their objec-
tion is," Antieau said.
If an accused student or com-
plainant shows that a panelist is bi-
ased, the panelist is replaced by one
of the two alternates, according to
If more than two of the panelists
are challenged, then "we'd have to
go back to the drawing board, but
we've never had it happen," Antieau

Court affirms discrimination rulings
WASHINGTON - With affirmative action under fresh scrutiny, the
Supreme Court on yesterday left intact two court victories won by white menu
who said they were victims of reverse discrimination.
The court let stand a ruling that an affirmative action plan for promoting Black
firefighters in Birmingham, Ala., unlawfully discriminated against whites.
And the justices let a white man collect $425,000 from a Pittsburgh,\
company he accused of denying him a promotion because of his race.
Neither action was a ruling. Instead, the court made no comment as it left
intact federal appeals court decisions in each case.
But yesterday's action came amid growing debate in all three branches of
government over whether affirmative action still is needed to help minorities
- and whether such aid is fair to non-minorities.
Republican leaders in Congress are seeking elimination of most affirma-
tive action. President Clinton has asked for a review of the 100-plus federal
programs that invoke affirmative action.
And the high court is expected to announce a major decision by July on
white-owned company's challenge to a federal highway program that offer*
special help to minority-owned small businesses.

Clinton signs bill to
avert D.C. bankruptcy
WASHINGTON - Hoping to
avert an embarrassing bankruptcy for
the nation's capital, President Clinton
signed a bill yesterday to set up an
oversight board with broad powers
over Mayor Marion Barry and the
The law alsorallows the District of
Columbia to borrow hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars from the federal Trea-
sury to help pay its bills. It requires a
balanced city budget in three years.
With Barry looking on, Clinton
said the seat of the U.S. government
- known for high crime, potholes,
slow trash pickups and deteriorating
schools-should be transformed into
"a city that works."
But leaders of both political parties
called the assignment a daunting one.
The GOP-sponsored bill sets up a
five-member board with powers that
include the authority to lay off thou-
sands of city workers. The city of
600,000 residents faces a $722 mil-
lion annual deficit and has seemed
headed for bankruptcy.
