After nearly a year of investigations the fate of a tenured
University professor accused of sexually harrassing his
female students will soon be decided by University President
According to the President's office, Shapiro is very close to
reaching a decision on the possible violations of Regental
bylaws. Under these bylaws, Shapiro can call for the
dismissal or demotion of the staff member.
NEITHER THE NAME of the professor nor the nature of
the harrassment have been made public.
The unprecedented case began in October 1982 when
Shapiro asked a key faculty committee - the Senate Ad-
visory Committee on University Affairs (SACUA) - to take
charge in handling the investigation.
The faculty committee delegated the responsibility of con-
ducting hearings for the accused professor to the Committee
AFTER A SERIES of hearings, the tenure committee
finished its investigation and handed over its findings to the
The accused professor appealed to SACUA, charging that
the procedures followed in his hearing were not properly
carried out. The faculty committee, under the special bylaws
then reviewed only the procedures used in the professor's
hearings. The group was not allowed to re-examine any of the
evidence in the investigation.
In June, after about two months of investigations, the
faculty group determined that the procedures followed in the
faculty members' tenure committee hearings were fair. Both
SACUA, the faculty group and the professor were given the
option of responding to the case.
AFTER THE PROCEDURES were determined to be fair
the case was forwarded to Shapiro who made a tentative
decision. But two weeks ago, according to SACUA Chairman
Herbert Hildebrandt, Shapiro's draft of his recommendation
was handed back to the accused professor and the faculty
group was once again given the option of commenting on the
case and its findings.
Hildebrandt would not say if SACUA exercised its option
to comment on the case, but added that the entire outcome o$
the case "sits on the president's desk".
Shapiro could present his recommendation to University
Regents at their meeting next week.Al
However, because this is the first-ever case involving a
tenured professor who is facing the possibility of disciplinary
action, University officials say they are proceding

If the door to your apartment doesn't
have a deadbolt lock, your landlords
may be violating a new city ordinance.
As of Sept. 1, landlords in Ann Arbor
must comply with a law requiring cer-
tain types of locks and other safety
devices on all exterior doors and win-
THE LAW, passed last February by
the Ann Arbor City Council, requires
one-inch deadbolt locks on all exterior,
swinging doors. All doors without a
window must also be equipped with
Landlords will not have to replace
existing five-eighths of an inch dead-
bolts until they wear out.
The new ordinance also requires lan-
dlords to install sash locks and steel
pins locks on double-hung windows at
ground level, and security rods for all
sliding doors and windows.
THE ORDINANCE will not apply to
owner-occupied homes, cooperative
housing, and condominiums.
Tenants whose homes lack these
safety measures should contact the City
Housing Office if their landlords fail to
comply with the law, said Jerry Wright,

IN JULY Pratt rejected defense
motions charging the federal gover-
nment with not legally executing
President Carter's registration
Rutt, who is engaged to be married in
May, said he has tried not to let the,
charges against him affect his day-to-
"Some people might think it's crazy
starting classes with the threat of being
thrown into jail hanging there all the
time," he said. I try not to worry about
it. It looks like I just may get through
the term...although I could just barely
get through the year."
RUTT SAID HE intended to maintain
a low profile at the University and has
not discussed the charges against him
with anyone in the co-op where he lives.
"People, they brand you too quickly.
I'd like them to get to know me first,
Rutt said he has not decided whether
he would appeal whatever sentence
might be brought against him.
"I'm just kind of taking things as they
come along," he said. "I worry about
the realm of possibility rather than im-
