Indiana University has opened a Title IX investigation involving an associate professor of law.
In a statement, University Spokesperson Chuck Carney says the university cannot comment on details of the personnel matter.
“We take these processes very seriously and will determine the facts in the case,” Carney says.
Confirmation of the investigation comes after IU’s Maurer School of Law sent an email to students in Associate Professor Ian Samuel’s civil procedure course outlining changes to an exam planned for Friday.
The email says another professor and the dean of the law school would be writing and grading the exam because of a “situation outside of [their] control that requires us to modify what had been originally planned.”
The email says developments this week “made what we had not expected suddenly necessary.”
Both the Bloomington Police Department and IU Police say they have no reports involving Samuel.
Samuel joined the Maurer School this semester after serving as a lecturer at Harvard Law School. He co-hosts a podcast about the Supreme Court and has appeared on the Fox News show Tucker Carlson Tonight.
We have reached out to Samuel for comment.
