She deserved to be fired. Case dismissed.
Lawsuit: UC honored sex offender, then forced out official who investigated him
Addendum: Goldblum responded to me on LinkedIn, and I find her to be dishonest:
Actually, Derek, this was not about denying students any rights or assuming someone is a danger. It was not about automatically accepting or not accepting convicted felons or registered sex offenders. Instead it was about processes that Cincinnati did not have in place for asking the right questions and doing a fair and complete risk assessment and basing decisions on those.
It was also about ensuring people who have been harmed being offered the resources they need and that we were required to provide under federal law. Finally, it is about not trying to sweep things under the rug, due to short-term thinking.
I am no longer at UC because I suffered retaliation for complying with a federal civil rights law, which was my job description, after all. University of Cincinnati is the disgrace for engaging in retaliation and for ignoring federal law and the needs of its faculty, staff and students.
Making assumptions based on brief media articles or social media is always a chancy thing. There is always more to the story. I am glad I have the opportunity to clarify this for you.
