Caltech officials sent a letter to faculty and staff acknowledging the situation, saying "there was unambiguous gender-based harassment." The professor, who was not named in the letter, was "placed on unpaid leave for a full academic year, and he is restricted from coming on campus."
BuzzFeed reported the professor told one of the grad students, "I'm just so happy that I have a female grad student who is actually sane and I can talk to.”
