Berkeley law school dean who resigned over sexual harassment allegations files discrimination suit

The L.A. Times reports:
The former dean of UC Berkeley’s law school filed a lawsuit Thursday, accusing school officials of singling him out because of his race for a second investigation of sexual harassment allegations.

In the federal discrimination suit filed in San Francisco, Sujit Choudhry said the UC system treated white faculty members and administrators found to have committed sexual misconduct more leniently while threatening him with a ban from campus and loss of tenure.

Choudhry, who is South Asian, resigned as dean in March amid faculty outrage that he had been allowed to remain in his position after a campus investigation substantiated sexual harassment allegations by his executive assistant.

The assistant, Tyann Sorrell, alleged in a lawsuit that same month that her boss had kissed, hugged and touched her repeatedly but was punished with only a temporary pay cut and orders to undergo counseling after the investigation.
Why are institutions that are run by progressives such hot beds of sexual harassment?
