Looks like there will be an ongoing legal battle between former assistant professor Blake Wentworth and at least three of his accusers:

The University of California, Berkeley has fired an assistant professor — Blake Wentworth in the Department of South and Southeast Asian Studies — after finding he sexually harassed four students, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. Wentworth and his lawyer were not available for comment. But he previously sued three of those accusing him, charging them with defamation.
