Professor Files Sexual Harassment and Retaliation Lawsuit Against Columbia University

In a lawsuit recently filed in Manhattan federal court (Ravina v. Columbia University, 16-cv-02137), the plaintiff – an Assistant Professor of Finance at Columbia University – alleges (among other things) that after enduring quid pro quo¬†sexual harassment by a tenured professor, “Columbia refused to stop his discriminatory behavior”, “allowed [plaintiff] to continue to be victimized and her career to languish”, and “retaliated against her and now is on the eve of denying her tenure and wrongfully terminating her.”
