One sexual assault survivor wants her alma mater to own up to its disappointing record.

"The news that the campus again attempted to sweep a sexual harassment case under the rug is not as surprising as it should be — in fact, it follows a pattern to which UC Berkeley students have grown accustomed. "

“As a Berkeley faculty member for more than 40 years, I have seen this cycle play out many times,” she wrote. “A few cases arise that are so shocking that they receive media attention; administrators rise to the occasion, ‘punishing’ a few of the worst malefactors and declaring that they have solved the problem; soon other matters more worthy of their, and the public’s, attention replace this one, and the ‘sexual harassment’ problem vanishes from sight, until a few years later equally notorious cases come to light.”

"This was a flirtation that never went anywhere – Yann expressed interest in someone who was not a Berkeley student or employee. He never touched her. He is being made an example of because of Berkeley’s response to high-level faculty who groped and assaulted Berkeley students and employees. We are confident that he will be vindicated."



And,
"Hufnagel's tweet read, in part: "These last two days have been gut-wrenching. Being ripped away from a team that I love deeply has been, in a word, unbearable. I take these allegations incredibly seriously, but the report is wrong. The outpouring of support has been unwavering and heartfelt. I have hired legal counsel to fight Cal's plan to terminate me.""
