Berkeley Law Dean Sued for Sexual Harassment by Former Assistant

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, March 9, 2016

The dean of the University of California, Berkeley School of Law has been sued for sexual harassment by his former executive assistant.

The suit, filed in California state court on Tuesday, claims that dean Sujit Choudhry inappropriately touched and kissed Tyann Sorrell, who had worked as his assistant from July 2014 until March 2015, when she took a leave from the school.

Sorrell alleges that several law school administrators knew about the harassment, but failed to intervene or report it. In addition to Choudhry, the suit names the University of California regents as defendants.

Requests for comment Wednesday from the law school and the university were not immediately returned.
