On 5/12/06 during Federal Court mediation a settlement agreement of $400,000 was reached. Plaintiff, a 22-year-old student at Kingsborough Community College while on a field trip in Dallas, Texas to present biology projects claimed to have been sexual touched in an inappropriate manner by the College’s professor. Publicity in the local media yielded other professors coming forward complaining of similar past acts, which the college alleged covered up. Plaintiff, uninjured physically, claimed psychological overlay with fears and anxiety caused by the event.
