A graduate student at New York University has filed a lawsuit alleging that he was sexually harassed by his doctoral adviser. The lawsuit was filed in New York State Supreme Court on Thursday and alleges that the gay male student was sexually harassed by his lesbian professor. The plaintiff states that during his three years at the university, he was “subjected to sexual harassment, sexual assault and stalking” by his adviser, “which devastated him and caused serious damage that he will likely suffer for years to come.” While the lawsuit details “verbal and written harassment,” an investigation by NYU found “insufficient evidence” of the assault or stalking claims.

A South Carolina mother has filed suit against the genetics lab which allegedly misidentified her son's medical condition prior to his death. The young boy died 10 years ago and the plaintiff alleges that the genetics lab, Quest Diagnostics, is responsible because it failed to properly identify the child's medical condition. According to the complaint, the boy died of Dravet syndrome, considered a “genetic dysfunction of the brain,” but the genetics lab found that the boy suffered from a mitrochondrial disorder. Quest Diagnostics has denied the lawsuit's allegations and stated that testing technology was not advanced enough at the time to detect the boy's condition.
