Sanford Heisler Kimpel, LLP Files Complaint against Columbia University

Sanford Heisler Kimpel, LLP filed a complaint March 22, 2016 night in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Columbia University. The complaint alleges that the lip service Columbia pays to gender diversity doesn't match the reality of how it treats the women who work there. The complaint provides extensive details regarding how the senior leadership of Columbia including the Provost of the University and the Dean of Columbia Business School, allowed one of Columbia's senior, tenured professors to sexually harass and obstruct the work of a female junior faculty member, plaintiff Enrichetta Ravina. The complaint alleges that rather than stop the harassment, Columbia retaliated against Ms. Ravina for protesting her treatment, including revoking a year of leave that had previously been granted and putting her on an accelerated tenure process in which it is impossible for Ms. Ravina to succeed.
