Three professors sue over discrimination

October 18, 2001
Three professors who allege they have been denied promotions and equal pay because of anti-Semitism sued St. Cloud State University today for discrimination.
      "It's time to fix the problem. There have been decades of anti-Semitism at St. Cloud State," said Judy Schermer, a lawyer representing the professors and a non-Jewish student who joined the lawsuit.
      A university-commissioned report by the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas concluded in July that the school exhibited a "strong perception" of anti-Semitism.
