In 2008, Balayla Ahmad, a Muslim student at Connecticut’s University of Bridgeport, complained to school officials that she was being sexually harassed by another student. Instead of investigating her complaint, the school chose to ignore it and believe a counter-complaint filed by her alleged harasser that accused her of being a terrorist:
After reporting the sexual harassment in April 2009, Ahmad said she was approached by two university security directors who told her someone had made allegations against her and they threatened to call the FBI and have her arrested.
Later, two FBI agents knocked on Ahmad's apartment door, questioned her and left a business card, according to the lawsuit. She said she learned that her harasser or his associates had fabricated a story falsely accusing her of being a terrorist in apparent retaliation for having made a sexual harassment complaint against him.
Ahmad asked that the university provide her with an off-site proctor for her exams, but she said the university told her in April 2009 that her sexual harassment complaint had been closed and that she was being referred to a disciplinary committee. In June, she said the university dismissed her.
Of course the FBI discovered that Ahmad is not, in fact, a terrorist. Ahmad is now suing the university for being unsympathetic, discriminatory dicks.
