Dempsey v. Bucknell, 4:11-cv-1679

On May 3, 2012, Chief Judge Kane granted in part the motion to dismiss of Defendants Bucknell University and various Bucknell employees and the motion to dismiss of Defendant Anothony Voci.  Plaintiff, a Bucknell student, filed this suit after the University and several of its employees initiated sexual misconduct proceedings against him, which Plaintiff contends were commenced without proper process and with the knowledge that the allegations were false.  Plaintiff also filed suit against his alleged victim’s attorney alleging, among other things, defamation and conspiracy.   The Court dismissed without prejudice a number of claims, but concluded that Plaintiff’s claims for fraud, breach of contract, false arrest, intentional infliction of emotional distress, malicious prosecution, tortious interference, and defamation could proceed as to some of the Defendants.
