Hi Diogenes

Whether Montague was drunk at the time is very relevant. His testimony is skewed because he was impaired.

My guess is that had he not been drunk, the whole thing wouldn't have happened in the first place. Apparently his two previous run ins with Yale university officials involved alcohol as well.

I am a physician and see just so many people who are dependent on alcohol or have a family member with that problem.

It so is sad to see a fine talented young man, captain of the basketball team, attending one of the finest universities in the world, having his career wrecked probably because of alcohol

OK I will get off my soap box.

And has been pointed out, alcohol is part of the culture of college campuses today and that is a big problem

As Calvin points out, Yale violated its own procedures in bringing the charge against Mr. Montague and has now lied about it to the Court.

As Jerrylh points out, drinking is a problem when carried too far. However, consensual sex whilst drinking, or even when drunk, is not itself a crime or even inappropriate when it takes place in your own bedroom. There is also a big difference between mere drinking and being knee-walking drunk insofar as memory is concerned.

The young lady refused to "press charges". That should have ended the matter.
