Where do you all stand if indeed this guy takes this to court and wins? If a court finds that his side of the story is the accurate one, what should happen to the "victim"? Should there be the same punishment put on that person, even though there was no complaint filed against her given that she (if the court would find that way) used a claim of harassment to get the guy hired?<quoted text>My, my you have a nasty temper. Anyone who disagrees with you slithered out of hole, shouldn't procreate, and you feel sorry for their kids. Then you blame the victim in a sexual harassment case and take the side of young children who are too inexperienced to understand the kinds of evils there are in the world. Welfare should come out and check to see whether you're a fit mother. I suspect you're not and that's why you're so defensive when some outside observer hits the nail squarely on the head.
Additionally, would the "inexperienced" students now be vindicated in your mind for standing up for him or would they still be uninformed "kiddies".
In my mind if he is guilty, then the punishment is just (although who gets fired for comments alone, and without prior warning) but if he isn't, the the "victim" is guilty of something much more severe - lying to end a guys career. I would hope she would lose her job in that case as well as having to pay a financial settlement.
Again though, if he is guilty then so be it. But in anycase you seem to be much more than an observer.
