Occidental Settles Over Alleged Harassment by Trainer

April 7, 2014

Occidental College has settled a complaint by students who say they were sexually harassed by the longtime athletic trainer at the college, The Los Angeles Times reported. The trainer, who could not be reached for comment, left the college last year. The agreement between Occidental and the students is confidential. But the complaint said that the trainer touched male students' groins inappropriately, and that they were not aware that the trainer has been required to attend sexual harassment training following an earlier complaint of inappropriate behavior.
