Behind the Lawsuits: Motivation, Legal Significance, and Hurdles.

I would like to start with this chronicle article. This article further demonstrates how an ordinary individual is oppressed and persecuted by tyranny from multiple perspectives and dimensions. This article relies on UNR and Jiang’s account of the story, which was supported by UNR’s fabricated ‘summary notes’ from my Title IX interviews and formulated before the UNLV mass shooting. (Following the UNLV mass shooting, UNR and its legal counsel, purposefully and overtly taking advantage of the UNLV shooting, shrewdly manipulated their narrative to maliciously label me as a potential mass shooter. Does this sound familiar? This pattern strikingly mirrors the malevolent strategies utilized by NSHE against other dismissed employees whom they suspected might potentially file lawsuits against the institution. A collection of UNR and NSHE’s vile tactics will be found in section III Despicable Retaliation on this page and in other UNR and NSHE cases. )

Chilling Facts: Suffocation in the Fight for Civil Rights at UNR

I. University Title IX Office

Before delving into specifics, let’s take a high-level approach and analyze the broader picture based on fundamental logic. The Title IX office acts as one of the agents for the central administration, functioning similarly to the University’s Police Department and the General Counsel’s Office. The Title IX office serves the central administration. Its primary task is to adhere to the directives of the central administration, which means its utmost priority is protecting the university, particularly its central administration and those in influential or high-ranking positions within the institution. Specifically, it aims to protect the University’s public image and financial interests, aligning with the central administration’s objectives. Therefore, despite the appearance of the Title IX office primarily focuses on ensuring a positive learning and working environment on campus, its core function is to aid the central administration in ‘managing’ students, faculty, and staff, maintaining campus stability and legally protecting the university.

You can imagine: When the Title IX office receives a complaint, they promptly gauge its significance. If it’s deemed trivial, they dismiss it. For moderately significant complaints, they strive to resolve them internally without causing public or campus-wide ripples or tarnishing the university’s image. However, in more serious cases where investigations might yield impactful findings, especially if a complaint is exceptionally severe, they escalate it to higher administration, such as the General Counsel’s office, before initiating an investigation or as per guidance. It’s routine for the Title IX office to promptly share the documents collected from complaints with the President and Provost offices, whether it’s before the initiation of Title IX or during its investigation. This in part reflects what certain internal audit documents have reported: some cases are directed to the “institutional legal counsel” or “institutional president or provost,” rather than to the Title IX office.


II. University Bylaws and NSHE Codes

If your constant focus remains on how the Title IX office conducts investigations, the falsification of investigative reports, the unfairness of the outcomes, the central administration’s unfair treatment of employees, and the absence of consequences for wrongdoers, your attention is misplaced. The University’s bylaws and NSHE Codes explicitly establish that decisions within the University are made by decision makers. The investigations and voting outcomes of various committees and offices, including the Title IX office, function solely as purported ‘recommendation’ for the decision makers. So, the natural question arises: who are the decision makers? Identifying the decision makers, which are UNR’s central administration, allows us to comprehend the University’s complete operational structure. If you think this concept unreasonable, consider this: from the moment you choose to study and work at this University, you automatically consent to and embrace these bylaws. Having reached this point, is there anything that remains unclear to you?


III. Despicable Retaliation

(UNR’s motives, schemes, a list of despicable means to employees and students – see bottom of this page, levels of accusations to further retaliate against dismissed employees, the NSHE code level, UNRPD level, and FBI Las Vegas level, which have been used repeatedly to dismissed NSHE employees, permanent harms, long-term impact on individuals and communities; Why did so many people leave quietly without speaking out about their unfair experiences? Why did many fail to secure employment elsewhere after being dismissed? facing retaliation, they have to be quiet otherwise they won’t find other academic jobs due to UNR’s tactics. – shot and fake reports by UNRPD, UNR’s own disciplinary sanctions, UNR’s legal threats, UNR’s media mouthpiece. How does this shape the future of the communities? Why should we stop this dead loop? And how to execute step by step? Foreseeable challenges? How to overcome these challenges? Temporary defeats and ultimate victories over time. Coming soon )


IV. Timeline of Events

Considering the aforementioned points, let’s analyze this incident as in a case study, which demonstrates certain fundamental operating mechanism that ensure UNR is indeed a heaven for powerful sexual predators while simultaneously ruining vulnerable prey by all possible means.

  • Email Communications with UNR Administrators, UNR Title IX Office, TNG Risk Management Solutions (hired by UNR), and Simons Hall Johnston P.C. (hired by UNR)
  • Title IX Investigation Files (including the Title IX Investigator Stephanie Augdahl‘s own ‘summary notes’ on Fan’s interviews)
  • Title IX and TNG Risk Management Solutions Reports (including ‘evidence’ UNR Title IX requested and disseminated)
  • Title IX, TNG Risk Management Solutions, and Simons Hall Johnston P.C. Hearings (see how the Hearing Officer Sandra Ketner truthfully comments on UNR’s track record and its policies that change as needed in the Determination Letter)
  • Intricate connections among Appeal Decision Makers, Elliott Sattler, Debbie Leonard, UNR President Brian E. Sandoval, and UNR General Counsel Mary Dugan, and Jiang’s Title IX counsel, Orrin Johnson, within the Title IX process.

    • The hearing farce
    • The Hearing Officer Sandra Ketner‘s Determination Letter states “there is no precedent at the University for imposing sanctions for a violation of the Consensual Relationships Policy.” In stating this, does the Hearing Officer confirm: UNR’s central administration and professors can freely exploit students for sex without facing any sanctions, as long as UNR arbitrarily labels the activity as consensual?
    • Appeal Decision Maker, Elliott Sattler, is a personal friend of UNR President Brian E. Sandoval. Sandoval appointed Elliott Sattler as a judge in Washoe County. UNR’s insurance providers and risk management partners have repeatedly compensated Elliott Sattler for serving as an intermediary shell and a protective barrier for Sandoval, concealing and facilitating Sandoval’s evasion of responsibility when signing and issuing retaliatory decisions in disputes between UNR and its employees.
    • Jiang’s Title IX counsel, Orrin Johnson, described Elliott Sattler as “a personal friend and mentor to [him]” in his article published on Nevada Independent, ingratiating himself with Elliott Sattler. In contrast, Elliott Sattler merely described “the relationship as one that includes occasional lunches and does not include discussion of work-related topics” when disclosing conflict of interests.
    • Appeal Decision Maker, Debbie Leonard, is a personal friend of UNR General Counsel Mary Dugan. Both Debbie Leonard and Brian E. Sandoval were lawyers at McDonald Carano. Debbie Leonard has also represented UNR in federal court for years. Can you guess the rate that NSHE paid for Debbie Leonard’s services?”

2024

  • January
    • UNR terminates Fan.

V. Lessons Learned

After going through this entire process of fighting for civil rights within UNR, I’ve gathered first-hand experiences and evidence that detail the despicable tactics UNR has used to shield itself, particularly its central administration, to the greatest extent possible.

  • Preparing for life-wide retaliation
    • Safety-related – Be prepared for armed police suddenly appearing at your home at midnight without announcement and being positioned to fire at you. Be prepared for receiving a statewide No Trespass letter and facing immediate arrest by University Police for accessing NSHE properties, including buildings and parking lots, some of which you may not even realize belong to NSHE. Be prepared for University Police to potentially use force, including firearms, against you, as UNR identifies you as an imminent threat to campus and directs University Police to immediate remove the threat using any necessary means. If one is shot to death by University Police, that is the price for suing NSHE and UNR, and for challenging high-level administrators who wield political power in Nevada and possess armed police as their personal agents.
    • Mental and psychological – Be ready for being sued or countersued by UNR counsel based on UNR’s arbitrary and fanciful accusations. Be ready for court’s orders to sanction you due to UNR’s continuous filing of motions for sanctions. Be ready for a court-ordered forensic examination of your mental health, with expenses incurred at your own cost as a result of UNR’s legal action. Be ready for the court to order a forensic examination of all your electronic devices at your expense, as a result of legal action taken by UNR’s counsel. Be ready for that some state-paid ‘private investigator’ enlisted by UNR’s counsel may hack into your personal computer and delete emails and documents.
    • Reputational –
    • Study and employment-related –
    • Financial –
  • Filing a complaint
