The management, according to the students, did not immediately take proper measures against the teacher.
Several female students of Harvard University filed a lawsuit against the institution, accusing its management of ignoring the fact of sexual harassment against them by one of the teachers. This was reported by Reuters.
In the statement of claim filed in the federal court of Boston (Massachusetts), the plaintiffs emphasize that the teacher John Komaroff threatened them with problems with employment in the future if they made public his actions. The university, in their opinion, did not immediately take proper measures against this teacher, which allowed Komaroff to continue to carry out violence against them.
The management of the educational institution refused to comment on the incident.
According to Reuters, Komaroff was placed on forced leave in January due to a violation of the university’s policy on sexual harassment. His lawyers reject any allegations that he harassed students or carried out violence against them.
