Yale Settles Suit on Murder of Grad Student

November 23, 2016

Yale University has agreed to pay $3 million to settle a suit by the family of a graduate student who was murdered in a research lab in 2009, the Associated Press reported. The suit said the university did not do enough to protect Annie Le, the graduate student, or women generally on the campus. The suit also charged that Yale should have known of the danger posed by Raymond Clark III, a research technician who worked in the same building as Le and who is currently serving a 44-year prison sentence for killing her. Yale has denied wrongdoing. Both Le's family and Yale declined to comment to the Associated Press.
