UC Berkeley Sexual Harassment Case

Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP, is one or California’s leading law firms representing victims of sexual harassment, discrimination and other employment law violations. The firm is noted for its results-oriented approach to litigation and ability to get results for its clients. Every day, Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP fights vigorously for the rights and dignity of employees.

After Tyann Sorrell, an administrative assistant had suffered months of unwanted hugs, kisses and physical contact by Dean Sujit Choudhry, Dean of Berkeley Law School, she turned to Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP. On March 8, 2016, John D. Winer and Shawn D. Tillis filed a sexual harassment lawsuit, and the next day, Mr. Choudhry took a leave of absence from his post as Dean, though he remains on the faculty.

The University of California has long had a code of conduct concerning sexual harassment and administrative procedures for dealing with allegations of such conduct. But it has struggled when facing actual complaints from administrative staff, students and faculty. The Sorrell case has sparked an outcry on the Berkeley campus, coming after two previous sexual harassment cases involving an astronomy professor and a former Dean of the Law School.

It would appear that the action taken by Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP, was the catalyst in drawing attention to a pattern of serious sexual harassment problems at the University of California.

The case has drawn wide attention in the media, including the following articles:

New York TimesSexual Harassment Cases Tarnish Berkeley’s Image as a Center of Social Activism

This article discusses the tarnished legacy of the University of California, Berkeley. School administration is being called into question by alumni and students, concerned that the administration is failing to foster a safe learning and work environment.

A civil suit filed by Tyan Sorrell, a Berkeley alumnae and former employee, through John D. Winer of the firm Winer, McKenna & Burritt LLP, is yet another example of how this educational institution is falling short in the community on its image as a center for social activism. In an interview with Sorrell, she comments on her sexual harassment case against Sujit Choudhry, former dean of Berkeley Law School, stating “I’ve worked for many high-level execs in Fortune 500 companies, and I’ve never seen anyone behave the way he has.”

 

 

Washington PostU.C. Berkeley Law dean on ‘indefinite leave of absence’ after sexual harassment suit

The article quotes University of California’s Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Claude Steele as saying: “A thorough investigation of this case found that Dean Choudhry’s behavior in this situation violated policy and that he demonstrated a failure to understand the power dynamic and the effect of his actions on the plaintiff personally and in her employment. Based on the findings of the investigation I believed that a combination of disciplinary actions, monitoring of his behavior and formal training would be an appropriate and effective response, and would produce the necessary changes in his behavior.”

Winer, McKenna & Burritt’s position is that these actions are an inadequate response to the gravity of the behavior and the extent of Tyann Sorrell’s suffering. The firm intends to move forward with the lawsuit.

New York TimesBerkeley Law School Dean Was Harasser, a Suit Says

The New York Times article notes that after the lawsuit was announced, Berkeley Law School said that Mr. Choudhry would take an indefinite leave of absence and step down to his faculty position and salary. It quotes attorney John Winer as saying about the case: “If you think of maybe the last person on earth who would do this, you would think it would be the dean of one of the most prestigious law schools in the country.”

San Jose Mercury NewsUC Berkeley draws fire over sex harassment case, law school dean steps down

The article states that Sujit Choudhry’s admitted that he had hugged, kissed and caressed his administrative assistant, Tyann Sorrell, and that it was his way of “saying thanks” after a long day of work. It also says that the dean “took a one-year, 10 percent pay cut and was ordered to undergo counseling – and to write Sorrell an apology.”

In response, Tyann Sorrell said “I was insulted when I heard the disciplinary actions, and though I wasn’t asking for his termination, it was ever so apparent to me that it was a slap on the wrist for them.”

ABC7 NewsUC Berkeley law school dean accused of sexual harassment goes on indefinite leave

This article conveys the extent and depth of Ms. Sorrel’s suffering and the determination of John Winer and his team to win the case.

After stating that the offensive behavior started in 2014 shortly after the Dean arrived and that it soon escalated, the article quotes John Winer as saying: “It built up to daily bear hugs where he’d press her into him and then continue to kiss her on the cheek. She said this behavior happened every day and the only thing he disputed was that it only happened once or twice per week.”

The Chronicle of Higher EducationBerkeley Is Under Fire, Again, for How It Handled Sexual Harassment

After stating the basic facts of the case and the disciplinary actions that the University of California took regarding Dean Choudhry, this article quotes Tyann Sorrell’s doubts as to whether they would have any real effect:

“The dean is one man,” said Ms. Sorrell, who is on leave with pay and looking for a job. “I’m not sure his stepping down is going to make a huge difference if change doesn’t happen on the systemic level to stop sexual harassment.”

One benefit of Winer, McKenna & Burritt’s lawsuit could be to persuade the University to take concrete actions to change the campus environment concerning sexual harassment issues.

CBS NewsDean of Berkeley law school steps down amid sexual harassment suit

One of the most revealing passages in this articles reads: “In her lawsuit, the married mother of five said she worked for the school’s previous dean without incident for two years. She says the problems with Choudhry started within months of his becoming dean in July 2014.”

This article contains some details about the case that other sources have not reported, including this quote: “I can’t put into words how unprotected and unsupported I felt,” Sorrell told KPIX 5.”

It shows the importance of retaining the services of an experienced employment law firm such as Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP, that can provide both emotional support and aggressive representation.

The Sacramento BeeUC Berkeley draws fire over sex harassment case, law school dean steps down

This article notes that “if it weren’t for the lawsuit, Choudhry’s actions would still be largely unknown to the public. UC Berkeley has failed to release records concerning employees disciplined for sexual harassment and misconduct in response to a Public Records Act request filed by this newspaper in early November. The campus says it does not keep such records centrally and has yet to hear back from all of the offices that hold them.”

The discovery process that Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP, undertakes could produce more revelations about the University’s procedural failings in sexual harassment investigations.

Daily Journal: Provost Had Minimal Guidance When Punishing Former Law School Dean

This article discusses that punishment of UC Berkeley School of Law Dean Sujit Choudhry was determined with minimal guidance from the university system by a school administrator. The Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost of UC Berkeley School of Law, Claude M. Steele, states “University policy does not give guidance on sanctions, so administrators have to exercise discretion and judgment in every case they confront.”

Plaintiff Tyan Sorrell is currently on leave. Her attorney, John D. Winer of Winer, McKenna & Burritt LLP, says Steele’s first concern was not Tyann. That’s why he told her he was concerned about ruining the dean’s career,” Winer said. “Obviously, Tyann is more replaceable, but just because she makes five times less than the dean doesn’t mean she is more expendable.”
