A pair of lawsuits have been filed against a convicted child sex offender and South Barrington’s Willow Creek Community Church. These lawsuits claim the man, a former church volunteer, molested more than one child through its “Special Friends” program for special needs children, during which time the church negligently supervised him.

A Northwestern University student has filed a federal lawsuit, alleging that the university mishandled her complaint over an alleged sexual assault by a professor. The alleged sexual assault happened in 2012.
Two excerpts from the February 11, 2014 Evanston Review article titled “Student sues Northwestern claiming sexual assault by professor” :
A student at Northwestern University filed a federal lawsuit against the school Monday, alleging that university officials acted with “deliberate indifference and retaliation” after she reported that a professor sexually assaulted her during her freshman year.
The plaintiff, now a junior in Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, claims that a tenured professor at the Evanston university sexually assaulted her in February 2012 after they attended an art event together in Chicago, the suit said. The university eventually found the student’s claims credible, but have never disclosed to her how they disciplined the professor, she says.
According to Northwestern’s website, the professor who allegedly assaulted the woman is still employed at the university.
The lawsuit blames Northwestern for “deliberate indifference and retaliation” in handling her case, alleging its actions violated Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972.
The student is seeking an unspecified amount in damages for medical bills, tuition reimbursement, emotional distress and attorney’s fees.
Additional details and possible updates concerning this lawsuit can be found in a variety of media sources, including the Evanston Review article mentioned above, as well as the February 12, 2014 Chicago Tribune article titled “Northwestern student files lawsuit over alleged sexual attack.”
