Stedman emphasized that the mora
torium would affect only freshmen, who
have not declared their major. But Mark
Kleinschmidt, a senior social studies
education major, disagreed.
"There's no way, no matter what the
dean says, that it's not going to reflect
on me," Kleinschmidt said. "I'm going
to have to spend special time in job
interviews explaining why my credibil

She added that several students were
willing to drop their scholarships if
school officials didn't agree to allow
freshmen to major in the program.
Allan Brandhorst, the school's pro

whether he would keep hisjob was "still
an open question."
"I haven't had any direct conversa

Men who never get carried away
to keep bathroom doors unlocked
Most women on the third floor of
Joyner maintain that the rule discrimi
nates against women, and many said
they would continue to tack the doors
open despite orders not to.
In a meeting last week with Area
Director Suzie Orr and Assistant Direc
tor of Housing Mary Crotty, residents
of Morgado's hall discussed the policy
of keeping their bathroom doors locked.
A primary complaint from the resi
dents was the awkwardness the lock on
the door presented for anyone carrying
shower items. The lock requires two
hand manipulation to leave the bath
room. Orr said, "This is not an issue of
convenience versus safety, but an issue

more sites to the active consideration
"I don't think we're ever going to
reach a consensus," Kubacki said. "No
one seems willing to compromise. Until
we have additional data, what are we
going to base our decision on?"
Each site has advantages and disad

a final decision until it receives objec

LSC member Nina Baird echoed
Kubacki's sentiments, adding that the
committee could add additional sites if

Baird said. "I feel like we're short

without more objective information."

Crotty said the housing department
decided to install locks on the bath
rooms of all-female residence halls
about three years ago. A series of inci

curtain aside as a woman was shower

a woman in a shower, prompted the
change, she said.
"Unfortunately, you've been think
ing that you had a choice," Crotty told
the residents. "The level of risk is not
based on how you feel, but on statis
tics." Lynn Ritchie, a third-floor Joyner
resident, pointed out that the current

HILLSBOROUGH After almost
two full days of trial, the defense intro
duced a motion Wednesday to dismiss
the case against a University student
charged with first-degree rape.
Orange County Superior Court Judge
F. Gordon Battle will decide at 9:30
a.m. today whether to terminate the
case against Carmen Edward Catullo.
The motion for dismissal was intro
duced at 4 p.m. after a day in which all
eight of the prosecution's witnesses had
taken the stand, including the accuser
and an expert witness from UNC's Stu
dent Psychological Services.
Catullo, 22, of 1-3 Kingswood Apart
ments is a UNC student and a former
member of the school's wrestling team.
He was suspended from the team after
he was charged Sept. 25.
Because decisions concerning dis
missals are made by the judge, jury
members were released when the mo
tion for dismissal was made.
Marilyn Ozer, an assistant to Barry
Winston, Catullo's attorney, told Battle:
"As the state has failed to present sub
stantial evidence of force, has failed to
present substantial evidence of clearly
expressed non-consent and has failed to
present evidence of serious physical
injury, the charges against the defen
dant should be dismissed."
Battle told Orange-Chatham District
Attorney Carl Fox and Winston that he
wouldconsiderthe motion for dismissal
during the overnight recess. "I do find it
a troublesome matter," Battle said.
Wednesday morning, the defense
cross-examined the accuser, a 19-year-old
UNC student who left school last
month on a medical withdrawal. Win
ston questioned her about apparent in
consistencies in information she had
given to a doctor, a social worker and
police officials. For most of the ques
tions, the accuser said she was not cer
tain of what information she provided.
"For the past seven months, I've met
a lot of people," she said. "I don't really
remember exact statements."
Winston asked the accuser if, on the
night of the reported rape, she ever used
the words "Carmen, I do not want to
have sex with you" or "Carmen, I will
not have sex with you." The accuser
said she did not use those words. She
said she continually told Catullo she

wanted to go home.
Winston asked the accuser about the
time she spent sitting on the apartment
steps after the reported incident. She
said she remembered a man named Todd
whom she had seen earlier in the
night approach her on the apartment
steps. After asking if she was OK, Todd
offered her use of his phone, and she
accepted, she said.
Todd was identified as Todd Hartung,
also a UNC student and a member of the
school's wrestling team.
The accuser said that while in
Hartung's apartment, he made amorous
advances on her and tried to kiss her.
She said she used Hartung's phone and
rested on his bed. She said that when
Hartung said he was going to sleep, she
got up from his bed and left because she
did not want to lie next to him.
Hartung was the next to testify for the
prosecution and said in cross-examination
that the accuser never had lain
down on his bed and that he never had
invited her to spend the night with him.
Also testifying in the trial was Elaine
Barney, acertifiedclinical social worker
at UNC's Student Psychological Ser
vices. Barney counseled the accuser for
about five months after the reported
When Barney testified that the ac
cuser was suffering from post-traumatic
stress disorder, the defense objected on
the grounds that Barney had not been
informed enough about the accuser's
life to make a PTSD diagnosis.
Battle ruled that Barney could testify
only on the symptoms consistent with
PTSD. "I'm not going to let her testify
that she made the diagnosis of PTSD,"
Winston questioned Barney about
her notes, which on at least three
occasions mentioned that the ac
cuser had been raped and assaulted by
more than one man. Barney said the
notes she kept had been dictated at first
and then typed, and that mistakes were
made on occasion.
But Barney said her notes were cor
rect in stating that there were multiple
assailants. The men who reportedly
watched the rape committed sexual as
sault, Barney said.
"Rape is a form of sexual assault,"
she said. "But another form of sexual
assault is being present when your team
member rapes another person, and you
do nothing about it."
