Bryan Cox, an associate professor of philosophy at Indiana University, is now being accused of sexual harassment by a former student who said she had a sexual relationship with him.
Amber Dabney said in a lawsuit that Cox sexually assaulted her in 2014.
In a statement, Indiana University said it is “deeply troubled by the allegations made against Bryan Cox and takes them seriously.”
The university said in an email to The Associated Press that it is cooperating with the investigation and is working to provide all necessary resources to the victims.
Dabney, a second-year PhD student, said she came to Indiana in 2015 to work on a dissertation, and she said Cox told her he was her supervisor.
She said Cox had sex with her, including when they were both drunk and high.
She said she left Indiana and started a new career at the university, where she had been an assistant professor of English.
Dobson said Cox is a popular professor and he was respected for his work with students, but he did not teach them.
“I was in a different place, so I didn’t think he had to do anything,” she said.
Cox was the first professor to be accused of harassment on campus.
His name has been removed from Indiana University’s website.
He did not respond to messages seeking comment.
Davies, who is now a law professor at Indiana, said in her lawsuit that she was sexually assaulted by Cox after he showed up to her home at about 9:30 p.m. on Sept. 16, 2014, at which point she went to sleep.
She alleges that he had intercourse with her after she awoke.
Dawson, who graduated from Indiana in 2017, said her sexual relationship was not sexual assault and that she had no memory of it.
“It didn’t take me long to realize I was not going to be believed, that I was being used and that he was the man who was doing this,” she wrote in her complaint.
Davis said Cox made her feel “lonely and alone” and he made her believe he was a professor of psychology.
Dabbney said Cox said in his letter to her that he felt sorry for her and she thought that he could be of help.
“We had the same academic advisor at Indiana and we worked together on some research,” Dabbney wrote.
“I was confident that he would see that I wasn’t alone.”
Davis wrote that Cox told him that he “did not think I had a problem” with her.
Diaz said in the lawsuit that he did meet Cox during the night of the alleged assault, and he asked her if she wanted to take a shower together.
Dizney said she did not remember how long they spent together.
Dinah Dabbs was a senior student at Indiana in 2016 when she said she met Cox and he told her that she needed to stop her studies at Indiana.
He then invited her to his house, where they had sex.
Dabiks said that Cox showed her a picture of himself on his cell phone and she later told him she had sexual relations with him that night.
Daviks said she and her boyfriend left the house after that and told the family of their relationship.
Dajae Davis, a third-year law student, was a junior at Indiana when she told her former professor she was leaving for a new job at another university, and Cox showed up at their house.
She also told Cox that she and his ex-girlfriend had a relationship.
Davis said she was a little nervous about it at the time, but Cox was “exotic” and “attractive.”
Davis said Cox showed a photo of himself to her and said that he wanted to date her.
She left Indiana in June 2018 and is now at a law school.
In her lawsuit, Davis said that after Cox’s arrest, she and Dabbes were given a letter from Indiana and Cox’s new university that said they were not allowed to work together in Indiana and were not to talk to each other.
She is suing for damages of $50,000.
Daniels lawyer said she believes the letter was sent by Cox to Dabbys new university.
In his letter, Cox said that the letter from the university was a “mistake.”
“I have apologized to the victim and have taken full responsibility for my actions,” he wrote.
Dadiels lawyer, Robert Bock, told the AP that the university has not given her any money or any money in connection with her lawsuit.
He said it could take up to three years for the case to go through a judicial process and that the lawsuit could be appealed to the Indiana Supreme Court.
In an email, Bock said that a lawsuit like hers could cause a lot of emotional stress to a woman who is working hard and wants to pursue her
