Last year, we reported here about the sexual harassment lawsuit brought by former George Mason Law School professor Kyndra Rotunda (now at Chapman). She alleges that Joseph Zengerle, director of the legal assistance clinic for military service members, was among other things "uncomfortably attentive". The ABA Journal and Washington Times, via Adjunct Prof Blog, are reporting that the case is set for trial:
She says he sexually harassed her. He says he did nothing wrong. And nearly a year of hard-fought federal litigation between George Mason University and the two former and current law professors doesn't seem to have come close to resolving the dispute. After the exchange of some 100,000 documents and 100 hours of depositions, however, the employment discrimination case is scheduled to go to trial in June.
A motion for summary judgment, however, apparently is pending.
