Quote: "A state appeals court has upheld the suspension of a disgraced UC Berkeley architecture professor who lost his job after claims of sexual harassment from a former graduate student came to light.

Nezar AlSayyad — an internationally recognized scholar who started teaching within the university’s Architecture and City and Regional Planning departments in 1985 — opted to retire in 2018 instead of serving a three-year suspension without pay for violating the university’s code of conduct."
