Yusuf Kalyango, a former Scripps faculty member found to have sexually harassed an Ohio University graduate student, recently dropped a discrimination lawsuit he filed against the university.
The lawsuit was officially dismissed April 29 after OU’s Board of Trustees voted to revoke Kalyango’s tenure in early April. David Moore, secretary to the Board, said that each violation relevant to the complaints of sexual harassment against Kalyango would warrant revocation of tenure, along with termination, according to a previous Post report.
In the now-dismissed lawsuit, Kalyango argued OU discriminated against him because of his race and argued he was “purposefully deprived” of equal contract and procedural rights, according to a previous Post report. Kalyango also requested to be reinstated as a full-tenured professor in the lawsuit, in addition to “appropriate back pay with prejudgement interests.”
