If a student reports a Title 9 violation and is retaliated against by the school or their personnel, a student may have a cause of action against the school. For example, if a student complaints of gender discrimination on a sports team and is removed from the team as a result of complaining, such actions may constitute retaliation and that student will be afforded protection under Title 9. In fact, a student is not only protected after making a formal complaint but they are also protected when making informal complaints to a person of authority at the school.
