Biden nominee says presumption of innocence not required

Just The NewsThe Biden administration's nominee to lead the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights told a Senate committee Tuesday that a year-old Title IX regulation does not require the presumption of innocence for students accused of sexual misconduct.

I take no position on what the regulation requires, except to note that it was issued under Trump to correct problems with due process created under Obama, by that I assume likely does require the presumption of innocence as a part of due process...
