Allegations of sexual harassment, abuse and discrimination have surfaced in a $20 million lawsuit brought by a former graduate student against Vanderbilt University, News Channel 5 reports. The suit comes at a time when Vanderbilt is already being scrutinized for how it handles harassment complaints. The U.S. Department of Education is investigating the university based on six allegations in 2013 that the school mishandled complaints of sexual assault and harassment. Vanderbilt officials declined to comment for the story saying they had not had time to review the lawsuit.
