LAWRENCE – Nearly four years after he was found guilty of sexual harassment, a University of Kansas professor continues to fight the university in court.
Those involved in the case of 85-year-old Zamir Bavel say part of the problem is the confusing and contradictory policies used by the university in such incidents.
Bavel contends the university violated his rights by denying him a hearing before he was found guilty. He also denies the allegations that he groped a female student. Bavel lost a lawsuit in Douglas County Court and is now waiting for the Kansas Court of Appeals to consider his appeal.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports court documents in Bavel’s case mention at least four sets of rules governing multiple university bodies, offices and administrators.
