The top lawyer at the American Red Cross has resigned after a news report that he lamented the departure of a senior executive who was pushed out of the organization several years ago after an internal investigation on sex harassment allegations.

According to ProPublica, the nonprofit journalism organization, David Meltzer, general counsel and chief international officer at the charity, submitted his resignation, dated Jan. 31 and effective immediately, to Red Cross president and CEO Gail McGovern.
