 The Toledo Blade reports that the head of the university's board of trustees called for the review. This comes after a male student who was accused of rape was placed on academic probation, ordered to undergo counseling and fined $25 by the school's Student Conduct Board. The female victim appealed the decision and was told the student would be suspended for a year. The male student then appealed and the original punishment was reinstated. The woman chose not to pursue criminal charges but says she is filing a federal complaint against the university. She no longer attends the University of Toledo.
