Last month we covered the somewhat salacious suit that law professor Kyndra Rotunda filed against her former employer, George Mason University School of Law; a GMU law professor, Joseph Zengerle; and the law school’s dean, Daniel Polsby. As we reported, most of the counts, including the juiciest sexual harassment claims, were dismissed.
Some state-law claims for assault and battery were still kicking around. Now those claims have also been settled, according to the ABA Journal.
So what are the terms of the settlement?
Alas, like so many settlements, this one is confidential. Apparently Rotunda isn’t getting any money out of the settlement, but she is getting unspecified “equitable relief.” Her lawyer, Richard Seymour, cryptically told the ABA Journal: “It’s very significant to her, and it’s taken a long time to get it, but she’s happy now that she has it.”
Congratulations to Rotunda on getting “it.” And congratulations to Zengerle on getting off; it must be nice to put this behind him.
