The only remaining claim in the wide-ranging sexual assault lawsuit filed by law professor Kyndra Rotunda against George Mason University is a state law count of assault and battery against her former supervisor, Prof. Joseph Zengerle.
Alexandria U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema dismissed the rest of Rotunda’s case, which also named Zengerle and GMU law Dean Daniel Polsby as defendants. The judge’s order, which followed a hearing on summary judgment motions, was entered Friday.
Rotunda – wife of con law scholar Ronald Rotunda – claimed she was harassed by Zengerle when she worked for him at a GMU legal clinic for military personnel and their families. Both Rotundas now teach at Chapman University’s law school in California.
