The National Law Journal reports that Kyndra Rotunda, currently at Chapman, has sued her former employer George Mason Law School for sexual harassment. She alleges that the director of the legal assistance clinic for military service members where she worked at GMU became uncomfortably attentive. In one incident, she claims he called himself her "knight and protector"; in another he bought her a scarf and suggested how she should wear it. In December 2006, according to the complaint, he allegedly invited her to drinks alone at his house, then stormed into her office screaming after she did not go. After that incident, Rotunda claims in court documents, Zengerle began micromanaging her work. He "repeatedly came uncomfortably close." There was another screaming incident.
