    The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill announced Tuesday it would suspend the Honor Court proceeding against Landen Gambill, a sophomore who has criticized the school's handling of her sexual assault case and others. The pending Honor Court case was filed against Gambill by an unnamed ex-boyfriend, who she claims abused her.

    In January, Gambill joined four other women in filing a federal complaint concerning the university's response to reports of sexual violence on campus. Gambill said she believes the present charges against her in the student-led Honor Court system were brought in retaliation for her speaking out. [...]

    The university had previously said on multiple occasions that the administration has no say in Honor Court proceedings, denying the allegation that proceeding against Gambill was retaliatory.

    However, Gambill's attorney Henry Clay Turner pointed out in a letter to Thorp on Monday that the chancellor "remains solely responsible for all matters of student discipline," including the Honor Court.
