Faculty member files suit against school over lack of protection
Tenured and award-winning faculty member Nadia Raza filed a lawsuit against Lane Jan. 21 over their inability to deal with a student who threatened and stalked Raza in 2014.
According to Raza’s suit, Lane failed to communicate with her, did not act when the student continuously threatened her and made it difficult for her to file a restraining order against the student. This caused Raza to start teaching online classes exclusively to avoid the threats she was receiving on campus.
“Lane’s response made a terrifying situation much worse,” Raza said in a press release.
