Quote: "On March 11, 2020, the lawsuit claims the plaintiff emailed then-Dean of Students Laurie Casteen saying she wanted the professor “to be held accountable for his abuse.” And while a formal Title IX investigation was launched by the end of the month, it took 493 days for the Title IX office to find that the professor had in fact “repeatedly harassed and assaulted” the student."

"A review panel recommended that the professor be terminated from his position at UVa. On July 9, 2021, he resigned. Throughout the Title IX investigation, however, he remained at his post with no suspension or administrative leave, and with “full, unfettered access to students,” according to the lawsuit.

Nearly three months after he resigned, then-Provost Liz Magill issued final remedial measures in a letter prohibiting the professor from being hired for any future position at the university and denying him emeritus status, an honorary title for professors who wish to stay active in scholarship and academia following retirement."
