At UCLA, Anger Builds Over Pending Return of a Professor Accused of Harassment [on Gabriel Piterberg]
by Andy Thomason
Protests at the University of California at Los Angeles are mounting over the case of a history professor who was suspended following an investigation into sexual-harassment complaints but who will be allowed to return to the campus in July, according to reports by the Los Angeles Times and a student-run paper, the Daily Bruin.
More than 40 students marched on the campus Wednesday to protest the university's handling of the complaints against the professor, Gabriel Piterberg, lodged by two graduate students who said he sexually harassed them over a period of years. The students have filed a federal lawsuit against the university, accusing it of doing little to help them and dissuading them from filing formal complaints.
