Berkeley Law Dean, Sued for Harassment, Is on Leave

March 10, 2016

The law dean at the University of California at Berkeley has been sued by his executive assistant for sexual harassment, The Washington Post reported. The suit charges that the dean, Sujit Choudhry, inappropriately hugged and touched his assistant, and the university did not respond appropriately when she complained. The suit points to documents stating that the university found that Choudhry did harass his assistant and that he was ordered to apologize and had his salary reduced by 10 percent for one year. Berkeley declined to comment on the suit, but said later that Choudhry was taking a leave of absence.
