The sexual harassment lawsuit filed against East Stroudsburg University, its trustees and current and former administrators is moving to federal court.
The state’s attorney general, which is defending ESU, its trustees and the administrators still working there, filed a motion on Friday asking the case to be moved to U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.
“There’s no way state court can deal with federal issues,” said Nils Fredrickson, a spokesman for the attorney general. “It’s a matter for federal court — or it’s not a matter at all.”
I`m so proud that I spent a lot of money on tuition. Nothing like a gigantic clusterfrak to bring out the school pride. Time to throw the ESU hoodie into the back of the closet.
