The Blog of Legal Times, Judge Dismisses Most of Sex Harassment Case Against George Mason Law (May 24, 2010):
A federal judge on Friday dismissed most of law professor Kyndra Rotunda's sexual harassment lawsuit against George Mason University School of Law professor Joseph Zengerle, the school's dean and the school itself. Judge Leonie Brinkema of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia ruled from the bench after a hearing on motions to dismiss the case. ...
The judge dismissed all claims against Polsby and the university and all but one claim against Zengerle. The remaining claim against Zengerle involves the common law tort of assault and battery under state law. A trial set for June 7 in federal court, which originally would have covered all the claims, will now be limited to the assault and battery claim.
