Brown University, Vartan Gregorian and David Roach adv. Cohen et al.
In November 1996, we won a ruling in federal court that Brown University violated Title IX when it demoted its women’s gymnastics and volleyball teams from university-funded to donor-funded varsity status. This ruling was affirmed on appeal. The U.S. Supreme Court declined Brown’s petition to hear the case, and the women’s teams were restored to university-funded status. Brueckner and Bryant continue to monitor the consent decree in the case.
