Mr. Marcus stated that the Office for Civil Rights should not have explicitly clarified that preponderance of the evidence was the appropriate standard for Title IX investigations—even though the OCR required schools to use the preponderance standard the last time he was in charge. Additionally, courts have long affirmed preponderance of the evidence is the appropriate standard for adjudicating civil rights violations, including Title IX, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. As the Supreme Court recognized in Cannon v. University of Chicago, the drafters of Title IX modeled the statue after Title VI and “explicitly assumed that [Title IX] would be interpreted and applied as Title VI had been.” As claims of discrimination and racially motivated harassment under Title VI are adjudicated using the preponderance standard, so too are claims of discrimination and sexual harassment (including sexual violence) made under Title IX. Beyond civil rights litigation, preponderance of the evidence is the standard employed in most civil actions. If the Department indicated its tolerance for other standards of proof, it would create a system where victims of gender-based harassment face uniquely high barriers while victims of harassment on the basis of all other protected characteristic do not. Such a system would be grossly inconsistent with case law as well as Title IX’s purpose of eliminating discrimination on the basis of sex.

This defense would shield against liability as a potentially responsible party (PRP) under CERCLA for developers acquiring contaminated real property after January 11, 2002.11 This defense requires the purported BFPP to establish eight criteria by a preponderance of the evidence.12 One of the BFPP defense’s eight criteria requires showing an exercise of “appropriate care with … hazardous substances … by taking reasonable steps to” stop additional releases of hazardous substances, and preventing or limiting exposure of the hazardous substances to humans, the environment, or natural resources after acquiring the property.13 Prior to the amendments, the main defense against PRP liability was for a party to claim status as an innocent landowner.14 This defense required the party to show an exercise of “due care” by a preponderance of the evidence with respect to the release or threat of release of any hazardous substance.15 There was little to no explanation at the time of the Amendments as to whether “appropriate care” and “due care” impose different standards of care.

WHEREFORE, If - after a full investigation - it is shown by a preponderance of evidence that the Commissioner, as an officer of the partnership of PSAS, was grossly negligent – whether through acts of commission or omission - in his duty of loyalty to either MATSUO OR BUNGE, by recklessly failing to provide ample notice and opportunity to attend the Draft, as well a fair and impartial opportunity to be heard if not attending the Draft, OR was grossly negligent in not acting with the requisite due care required towards the PSAS at-large, as far as the commissioner’s rights, duties, and responsibilities, by recklessly failing to ensure that the PSAS Draft was conducted fairly and within the aesthetic standards demanded by the PSAS-concept established over the course of the partnership’s five year history, thereby irreparably affecting said partner’s statutorily protected equity rights, property rights, intellectual or otherwise, or voting rights, then the Commissioner is GROSSLY NEGLIGENT of breaching his fiduciary duties, subjecting the Commissioner to civil penalty to the full extent of the law.
