COMMISSION
Continued from page 1
The number of staff who deal with citi-
zen complaints was cut this year, leaving
citizens without a good way to reach the
commission if they feel their rights have
been violated, Fox said.
But Lowenstein said the commission is
functioning fine without its usual staff.
"(The commission) doesn't really need
a staff because citizen issues are handled
within the Human Resources Depart-
ment now," Lowenstein said, referring to a
separate office in the city government. "If
the commission wanted to, it's very easy
to set up a hotline or e-mail where people
can send in complaints. The commission
members have been so devoted to simply
talking, they haven't been thinking about
doing anything."
Hieftje said the commission often goes
months without receiving any citizen
complaints. Previously though, the com-
mission has initiated such projects as the
Ann Arbor racial profiling study conduct-
ed last year.
Fox has also said a lack of new appoin-

tees to the commission suggests the mayor
might be trying to phase out the commis-
sion. Fox said currently the commission
only has five members.
"We had strong evidence that the mayor
was intentionally letting the Human
Rights Commission die by not appointing
new members. We didn't know specifi-
cally why he was doing this, but we could
only conclude that some of the things we
had brought to his attention and the atten-
tion of the council were difficult issues
that they didn't agree with," Fox said.
"Basically, she's wrong," Hieftje said.
"The city has nearly 60 boards and com-
missions, and it's a chore to stay up on
reappointing people to those commis-
sions. I put forward two more names last
Monday night and I'll be putting forward
another name next Monday night. It's
pretty silly to say that there was any effort
to let the commission go away."
Fox said the commission is not working
on projects due to its lack of members.
"Right now, we are so stymied by our
lack of members and our lack of staff that
we are not involved in ways that we should
be," Fox said.

CASE
Continued from page 1
ment. We're appealing the case because
we took immediate action to stop it. The
University takes sexual harassment very
seriously and we responded in a way
that the law requires."
Massie, however, said University offi-
cials didn't take serious action against
Calabria until they heard that Johnson's
mother was considering litigation - only
then did they buy out his contract, she
said.
"Calabria was given a year's paid vaca-
tion and Marueen (Johnson) was driven out
of the University of Michigan's graduate
program. If that's an adequate response to
a sexual harassment complaint, the law's
protections mean nothing," Massie said.
Massie claims the University made it
impossible for Johnson to continue study-
ing in the music program because it kept
Calabria as a professor for the winter 1998
semester and refused to allow Johnson to
switch into a different orchestra.
But Peterson said the University gave
Johnson "every opportunity to continue

in the program" and let her drop out of
Calabria's orchestra without penalty.
A Washtenaw County jury originally
gave the verdict against the University in
April 2002. In October 2002, the Uni-
versity asked the judge to overturn the
verdict. When Washtenaw County Cir-'
cuit Court Judge Melinda Morris upheld
the verdict - and increased attorney fees
to encourage lawyers to take sexual
harassment cases filed by students - the
University appealed the case.
State Court of Appeals Chief Judge
William Whitbeck will deliver today's
ruling in Grand Ranids
