Quote: "faculty member at Eastern Michigan University was suspended over sexual harassment claims. He returned a year later, in 2008, and taught for several years, but was then denied tenure. When he reapplied, after an arbitrator agreed with the faculty union that proper rules were not followed the first time, he was denied tenure once again, and the provost cited sexual harassment as a reason, according to the letter denying him tenure.

The case involves Edwin Etter, an associate professor of accounting at the university’s business school, who was denied tenure earlier this year. He will depart in August, 2013, but according to a local website he will be on “desk duty” till then. Walter Kraft, vice president for communications at the university, declined to comment on the case while Etter did not respond to phone and e-mail requests for an interview."
