LAWSUIT: Falsely Accused GWU Prof. Suing for Malicious Title IX Investigation
Chemistry professor Catherine Woytowicz is suing George Washington University after it allegedly subjected her to a malicious sexual harassment investigation. Woytowicz was accused of Title IX sexual harassment by a male student and the accusations “were later found to be unfounded.” According to the complaint, Title IX Coordinator Rory Muhammad kept a notebook of the accusations against Woytowicz, and when she asked to see it during the meeting, Muhammad held the notebook above her head and seemed to ‘delight in this, as if playing a child’s game of keep away’. Woytowicz claims that the University’s handling of the case represented a breach of contract and violated her rights under the First and Fifth Amendments and the D.C. Human Rights Act.
