The Never-Ending Story (of Sexual Harassment at UC Berkeley’s School of Law)

A couple weeks ago, we covered the case of Sujit Choudhry, former Berkeley Law dean. Then, the news was his return to campus. There’s a new development: he’s suing the university.

A quick recap to get us up to speed: Choudhry was dean when his executive assistant, Tyann Sorrell, accused him of sexual harassment. Choudhry claimed that all those long hugs, kisses, and massages were strictly nonsexual — sure they were; you’re dean of a top-10 law school and that’s really the best defense you can come up with?

What’s the matter with Cal?

Not all is well in Berkeley. If you walk around, nothing seems amiss. People’s park still smells like weed. The school year at UC Berkeley just started, so the campus is abuzz with students. Many of those students have just signed over the right to their first-born child to rent an apartment nearby. All normal, around here.

But business as usual has a lot of students very angry, since it’s become apparent that business as usual includes not taking sexual harassment allegations against professors very seriously.
