were they sued in the scamsuits?

regardless, here's a claim by a graduate of sex stuff, retaliation and so forth... looks like it's going forward

I'm surprised every school oike that isn't sued by multiple grads every year

or maybe they are and we just don't know?

forget the scamsuits, people will find/make other claims

the bottom-tier law schools are in the business of taking young people and quite literally leaving at least many, if not most of them with unpayable debt and next to no prospects for decent employment

I've said before and I'll say again - I'm surpised there isn't more litigation (on ever conceivable ground, really - harassment, sex, whatever) vs. the schools, not to mention other kinds of "outbursts"


New York Law School Can't Shake Grad's Assault Suit
A graduate alleges the school did not adequately punish a male classmate who pushed her up against a wall on campus and rubbed his body against her while pulling down his pants.

New York Law School.

A 2016 graduate of New York Law School who claims she was assaulted on campus by a classmate may proceed with her lawsuit against the school, a federal judge has ruled.

U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos of the Southern District of New York allowed a stripped-down version of plaintiff Theresa Bailey’s suit, which alleges that the school and various administrators did not adequately punish a male classmate who pushed her up against a wall on campus and rubbed his body against her while pulling down his pants.

Bailey also claims that the school retaliated against her by thwarting her efforts to transfer after the incident and that several professors punished her with low grades as a result of her efforts to see her attacker punished.

Bailey, who is representing herself and does not appear in the New York state court system’s database of licensed attorneys, may move forward with her Title IX retaliation claim against the school, her claim of deceptive acts and practices under New York’s General Business Law, and claims that several professors and administrators violated New York’s Human Rights Law by allowing harassment based on her gender and race, Ramos ruled in a Dec. 27, 2017, opinion. Bailey is black. But he dismissed several other claims, including fraud, breach of contract, intentional infliction of emotional distress and a Title IX discrimination claim.

Neither Bailey nor a spokeswoman for the law school responded to requests for comment Monday.

Bailey, an evening student, sued the Manhattan law school in 2016 soon after she graduated, seeking the $280,000 she says she paid in tuition as well as changes in how the school handles disciplinary cases.

Her suit alleges that a male student cornered her in a hallway on October 2014 while she went to the restroom during her evening constitutional law class and forcefully pinned her against the wall while rubbing against her. She was eventually able to break free, according to her suit, and saw that his pants were down. On a web page seeking to raise money through GoFundMe, Bailey wrote that she suspects her attacker was using bath salts—a drug associated with paranoia, hallucinations and violent behavior.

“[The attacker's] eyes were red and glazed over, he was drooling, his chest was rising and falling, he was clenching and unclenching his fists, and his shoulders were rounded in an aggressive posture,” her court complaint reads.

She later learned that several other female students had lodged complaints against her attacker, according to her suit. She reported the incident to administrators the following day, and to police two weeks later, although they allegedly told her that there was little they could do.

The law school conducted an investigation, and a disciplinary panel concluded that Bailey’s attacker violated the school’s nondiscrimination and harassment policy. He was banned from campus for several weeks; restricted from taking any classes meeting after 5:40 p.m.; restricted from being on campus outside of classes and co-curricular activities; required to complete harassment training; and placed on probation, according to court records.

Bailey believed those measures were too lenient and requested a rehearing, although his punishment did not change as a result. He graduated in 2015. Bailey claims that her academic performance declined after the incident and that she suffered panic attacks.

Ramos ruled that Bailey should have the opportunity to prove her claim that the law school’s marketing material, which said gender-based harassment and discrimination would not be tolerated, were misleading.

Additionally, she may move forward with retaliation claims against law Dean Anthony Crowell and associate dean Ella Mae Estrada for allegedly blocking her attempt to transfer, as well as two professors for what she claims were improperly low grades.

She is seeking $280,000 reimbursement for tuition payments. This assumes that but for these incidents, she would be gainfully employed at a big firm, great government gig or corporate outfit making good money. According to JDU, she would be unemployed fighting for a seat in Sullivan & Cromwell's basement doing doc review making $28 per hour, no benefits, and 3 months in between projects, even if these incidents never happened and she was editor-in-chief of the NYLS law review. Based on that, she has no claim.

Her total cost of attendance appears to be $238,038.00. She has an undergraduate degree from New York University which, unfortunately, is now irrelevant.
