Title IX investigation closed at Liberty University

The U.S. Office for Civil Rights is closing a Title IX investigation at Liberty University, saying it lacks jurisdiction over an off-campus sex assault allegation against a university employee.

In a June 15 letter to university President Jerry Falwell Jr. obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, the office said it’s closing the investigation. The office says the accused’s employment alone doesn’t confer jurisdiction, since the complainant wasn’t affiliated with the school and the alleged assault didn’t occur in connection with any university activity.
