Binghamton University Must Face Sex Harassment Suit
On March 3, 2023, attorneys Jason Solotaroff and Amy Robinson prevailed in their opposition to a motion to dismiss filed by Defendant SUNY Binghamton in a Title IX case alleging sex discrimination. Giskan Solotaroff & Anderson represents former SUNY Binghamton professor, Dr. Karen Barzman, who was subjected to sex discrimination by her department chair. When Dr. Barzman complained to top administrators at SUNY, they refused to transfer her or take meaningful action to address the discrimination and harassment. District Judge McAvoy of the Northern District of New York denied Defendants’ motion to dismiss in its entirety, and the case will now proceed to discovery. See more on our blog.
