Last week, the Primary Court of UNF met to discuss a judicial complaint against Senate President Rachel Saunders. The case argued that President Saunders was in violation of Title X 1002.1.
Title X 1002.1 is as follows:
“Discrimination shall be defined as the differential treatment of a student or student group solely on the basis of his or her gender identity or expression, race, ethnicity, creed, color, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status, parental status, disability, and any combination thereof, or what is outlined in the University Non-Discrimination, Equal Opportunity, and Diversity Statement.”
The case is outlined below:
The Court strongly denounces hate, stating: “There is no place at UNF for hatred, and most especially for hatred of the type we have seen in this case. It is disgusting and inexcusable.”
Ultimately, the Court found Saunders in violation of the alleged offenses with a 2-0-0 vote. They also recommended impeachment for acts of malfeasance and neglect.
“[Rachel Saunders] is hereby and immediately suspended from their position, pending the outcome of an Impeachment hearing before the full Senate,” as written by case JC-21SA-001.
The Court also alluded to bringing more charges against others involved because, “while this case only pertains to one individual, many more still need to be called to account for their actions.”
The Supreme Court is holding a hearing Wednesday, June 2, at 6 p.m to discuss the case.
The Court is working to release the presented evidence, including the recording of the meeting to Spinnaker. Spinnaker will update you with an in-depth analysis of the evidence when possible.
