A sexual harassment complaint at Johnson State College could end up in court.
Student Nicole Daigneault filed a complaint against Professor Fred Wiseman last spring, after breaking off a personal relationship with him. An internal investigation found that Wiseman sexually harassed her and engaged in unprofessional conduct.
Now Daigneault is seeking depositions in support of a lawsuit against the college, claiming school officials failed to take adequate action against Wiseman.
In response, Johnson president Barbara Murphy said, "Where allegations are substantiated, we take prompt and appropriate action ..." But she says those actions," ... may not be readily apparent for a variety of reasons, including confidentiality of student and personnel matters."
