Woman Files Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Against the University of Bridgeport

A woman has filed a lawsuit against the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. The woman, who is an African American Muslim, claims that she was sexually harassed by a male student. When she reported the harassment to the university, the suit says the university responded with “deliberate indifference.” The suit says that when the woman met with the dean, she was told, “My hands are tied. What do you suggest I do.”

Later the woman was approached on campus by two security officers who said accusations had been made that she was a terrorist. Two FBI agents visited her apartment. The suit claims the false accusations were fabricated by the man who had sexually harassed her. The lawsuit states that the harassment caused the woman to be unable to complete her studies and she was subsequently dismissed from the university.
