A federal judge has ruled that a trio of high-ranking administrators at Pennsylvania’s East Stroudsburg University must answer to claims that they conspired to cover up allegations by six male students that they were sexually harassed by a male administrator.

The suit, Bernard v. East Stroudsburg University, alleges that Isaac Sanders used his former post as vice president of advancement and executive director of the ESU Foundation to target young black men at the school for the solicitation of sexual favors and to create a sexually hostile learning environment.
