In Davis v. Monroe County Board of Education, the Eleventh Circuit Court
of Appeals, which covers the states of Georgia, Alabama, and Florida,
was asked to interpret Title IX. In its opinion, Title IX did not
apply to student-to-student sexual harassment. Other courts, however,
have disagreed and ruled otherwise.

The Supreme Court has the power to resolve conflicts among the federal
courts of appeal. WHen it hears the Davis case, it will decide once and
for all whether Title IX requires schools to do something about
student-to-student sexual harassment.
