INNOCENT Paul Nungesser’s Lawsuit Is Dismissed, Sadly

On Friday Manhattan federal judge Gregory Woods said Nungesser could not prove he was harassed based on his gender and tossed the lawsuit “with prejudice”  To win, Nungesser would have had to prove that Columbia knew he was being harassed based on his gender. But Nungesser himself argued in his lawsuit that “Sulkowicz’s conduct was motivated by her anger at his rejection of her as well as her anger at his having been found ‘not responsible’” for the rape. Nungesser’s lawyer said his client intends to keep fighting. “We think we have a good appeal. We’re going to have to go to to the Second Circuit (Court of Appeals) and get it done right.” By Kaja Whitehouse
