GMU law professor faces harassment suit

Joseph Zengerle, a George Mason law professor and former assistant Air Force secretary, has petitioned a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit from an ex-colleague who claimed he sexually harassed her, according to an account in today's Washington Times.

The story says the filing "is just the latest salvo in a several-year battle between Joseph Zengerle, a West Point graduate and Airborne Ranger Infantry officer in Vietnam who founded the university's Clinic for Legal Assistance to Servicemembers, and Kyndra Rotunda, former lawyer in the Army's Judge Advocate General's Office and a prosecutor for the Guantanamo Bay Office of Military Commissions, who was hired as the clinic's director."

My paper has not covered the suit. Very attentive readers may remember Zengerle as an attorney involved 18 years ago in an (obviously unrelated) sexual harassment claim against the then-top executive of Disabled American Veterans, who subsequently lost his job.
