Lawrence Mitchell, who came to Case Western Reserve Law as its new dean in 2011, has resigned. He has been on a leave of absence since November when fellow faculty member Raymond Ku sued, claiming that Mitchell had retaliated against him for reporting alleged sexual harassment. More details here.
The case has taken various turns since Ku filed suit in October - including an effort by Mitchell to strike parts of the complaint as "immaterial, impertinent and scandalous."
Mitchell will remain on the Case faculty and take a sabbatical next year. The school's presser is here.
