Law Professor Alleges Dean Retaliated Against Him for Reporting Sexual Harassment

Published: October 23, 2013

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Case Western Reserve University Law School Dean Lawrence Mitchell and the school are being sued by former Associate Dean Raymond Ku, alleging that Mitchell and Case Western retaliated against Ku for reporting that Mitchell had possibly sexually harassed female students and staff.

Ku claims he personally saw Mitchell caressing a female staff member at a party and learned of allegations by other women that Mitchell had made inappropriate comments, reports the Plain Dealer. After Ku reported these issues to school authorities, Mitchell allegedly threated to fire him. Ku was stripped of many of his responsibilities and had his salary reduced.

The lawsuit also claims Case Western officials knew of prior concerns about Mitchell at another university.

Case Western has denied any wrong-doing.
