Harvard Law School under investigation

A complaint filed against
Harvard Law School over its
handling of sexual assault is
still under investigationby the
Department of Education's
Office of Civil Rights, The
Crimsonreported Tuesday.
Since the initial complaint
filed by Wendy Murphy, a
professor at the New England
School of Law, which sparked
the original Title IX investi-
gation, other parallel reports
have been filed.
Murphy said in her com-
plaint the process of hearing
sexual assault cases should
include a "preponderance of
evidence" to meet the stan-
dards of other Ivy League

schools. All but two Ivy
League schools have adopted
the standard, with Yale Uni-
versity being the most recent.
In 2010, Yale faced simi-
lar challenges but eventu-
ally came to an agreement
with their own Office of Civil
Rights. John L. Ellison, for-
mer secretary of the Adminis-
trative Board at Harvard, said
that Harvard should learn
from Yale's case.
"Harvard says they have
zero tolerance for violence
against women. Then why
do they refuse to apply the
preponderance standard of
proof?" Murphy wrote in an
e-mail to The Crimson. "The

effect of such a rule is tanta-
mount to declaring the word
of a woman less valuable, less
credible and less worthy than
the word of her attacker."
If the school's disciplin-
ary system for treating and
addressing sexual assault
cases is found to be insuffi-
cient, the Law School could
lose federal funding.

Assault on Saturday, feminist
activist and writer Jaclyn

Friedman said because
of the caricature of rap-

Let his term begin.
The University has sched-

of University President-elect
Mark Schlissel for Sept. 5 in

Though Schlissel will begin
his presidency July 14, the
event will celebrate the begin-

versity's 14th president.
Schlissel, current Brown
University provost, was
appointed to the presidency
by the University's Board of
Regents in January. He will
succeed University President
Mary Sue Coleman, who will
retire in July after 13 years in
the University's top position.
The inauguration will
include a ceremony, a variety

community to celebrate the
arrival of Dr. Schlissel," she
wrote in a statement.

Iraqi clashes prevent voting
in parts of Anbar province

Fierce fighting
between troops and
militants places
election in jeopardy
BAGHDAD (AP) - Iraq's elec-
toral commission said on Tues-
day that there will be noballoting
in parts of the Sunni-dominated
Anbar province engulfed in
clashes between security forces
and al-Qaida-inspired militants.
Since late December, the west-
ern Anbar province has seen
fierce fighting between govern-
ment troops and allied tribal
militias on one side, and militants
from the Islamic State of Iraq and
the Levant, an al-Qaida spin-off
group, on the other.
The militants have seized and
are continuing to hold parts of
the provincial capital, Ramadi,
and nearly all of the nearby city
of Fallujah.
The exclusion of major Sunni

cities such as Ramadi and Fallu-
jah - where most of the fighting
is underway as Iraqi forces try to
wrestback areas overrunby mili-
tants - from the April 30 voting
for Iraq's new parliament could
deepen Sunni fears ofbeing mar-
ginalized by the country's Shiite
In a press conference in Bagh-
dad, a member of the Indepen-
dent High Electoral Commission,
Muqdad al-Shuraifi, said the
"commission cannot send its
employees and balloting-related
equipment, as well as logistics, to
the areas where security opera-
tions are underway."
He did not specifically name
the areas seized by the militants
but assured families displaced
by the fighting that they will be
allowed to vote in areas deemed
"safe" or in parts of the province
where they found shelter or in
other provinces where some of
them ended up.
According to the United
Nations, about 400,000 people

have been uprooted by the ongo-
ing violence in Anbar.
More than 9,000 candidates
will vie for 328 seats in the par-
liamentary elections, the first
balloting in Iraq since the with-
drawal of U.S. troops in late
Also on Tuesday, gunmen in a
speeding car shot and killed six
men gathered in a street outside
the city of Mosul, about 360 kilo-
meters (225 miles) northwest of
Baghdad, a police officer and a
medical official said.
The men were two brothers
and four of their cousins, and it
was not clear why they were tar-
geted, said the officials, speak-
ing on condition of anonymity as
they were not authorized to talk
to the media.
Later, near the city of Misha-
da just outside the capital, a
suicide bomber rammed an
explosive-laden car into the
main entrance of a police sta-
tion, killing four and wounding
seven, officials said.
