Senator scrutinizes claims by Judicial Affairs co-chair

Michele Dauber, Stanford law professor and co-chair of the Judicial Affairs Committee, made misleading statements to an assembly of student representatives last Wednesday regarding the new Alternative Review Process (ARP) for sexual assault cases on campus. ASSU Senator Ben Laufer ‘12 said at the Senate’s Tuesday meeting, at which Dauber was not present, that he felt she “misled to the point where she even actually might have lied to us.” Laufer later apologized for saying Dauber may have lied.
