New claim in the Duquesne University sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuit

Alice Stewart, an employee at Duquesne School of Law who filed a lawsuit against the university for sexual harassment and discrimination in July, amended her federal lawsuit to add a claim of defamation.  According to The Duquesne Duke, “The lawsuit names University President Charles J. Dougherty, law school Dean Ken Gormley, Provost Ralph Pearson, General Counsel Linda Drago, and Associate Law Dean Nancy Perkins as defendants.” 

The revised lawsuit also removed a claim of sexual harassment after the university filed a motion to dismiss on the grounds that Stewart “failed to file a lawsuit with respect to that claim within 90 days of receipt of the EEOC’s notice of right-to-sue dated September 24, 2007.  Indeed, Plaintiff waited almost three years to file suit on that claim.”
