UC Berkeley Law Dean on ‘Indefinite Leave of Absence’ After Sexual Harassment Suit

Officials at the University of California at Berkeley said Wednesday night the dean of their prestigious law school is taking an “indefinite leave of absence” from his position after he was sued for sexual harassment by his former executive assistant, who claims he made inappropriate advances toward her.

The complaint was filed Tuesday against Berkeley Law Dean Sujit Choudhry and the University of California Board of Regents, claiming sexual harassment, retaliation and failure to stop it, among other actions.
