CLEVELAND -- A professor at Cleveland's Case Western Reserve University has sued the law school dean claiming retaliation for reporting alleged sexual harassment by his boss.
The lawsuit was filed Wednesday by law professor Raymond Ku against Dean Lawrence Mitchell and the private university.
The lawsuit asks for an end to the alleged retaliation and unspecified monetary damages.
The university says there was no retaliation and says Ku remains a tenured faculty member. It says there is inaccurate, inflammatory and false information in the lawsuit and related materials.
The suit says the professor complained about alleged inappropriate touching and comments involving women. It also claims the dean asked about circumcision as the professor prepared to convert to Judaism.
The lawsuit says the dean retaliated by threatening dismissal and trimming his duties.
