GMU sex harassment suit dismissed

By Washington Post editors

A federal judge has dismissed all claims against George Mason University and the dean of its law school in a sexual harassment case brought by a woman formerly employed by a GMU legal clinic, Daniel de Vise reports at College Inc.

Kyndra Rotunda had sued the university, saying she was subjected to retaliation and pay discrimination after she rebuffed sexual advances by the clinic's executive director, according to this account in the American Bar Association Journal. The article states that the university knowingly tolerated the harassment.


Two weeks before trial, U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema ruled Friday from the bench that Rotunda "had not presented sufficient evidence to get to a jury" on any of her claims, according to a release from the Covington & Burling lawfirm, which defended the university.
