INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Indiana University says a review of sexual misconduct cases handled by its former student ethics director has found that those cases were conducted without “bias or undue influence.”

A retired IU law professor reviewed 17 sexual misconduct cases that Jason Casares presided over during the past academic year.

Casares resigned in February amid allegations he sexually assaulted a woman at a conference in Texas. His attorney has said Casares denies those allegations.

Professor emerita Julia Lamber read the entire case file for all 17 sexual misconduct cases as part of her review.

IU said Monday that Lamber concluded school rules were followed in each case, “ensuring a fair process for all parties involved.” The review also found that Casares never pressured hearing officers into taking a particular position.
