A student services assistant at Southwestern College has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against three administrators, including a vice president.
Martha Jimenez alleges in a suit filed in San Diego Superior Court late last month that she “involuntarily accepted” demands for sex from Arthur Lopez, the director of financial aid. Lopez resigned in June.
According to the lawsuit, Lopez would tell Jimenez during their sexual encounters to remember that her evaluation was coming up and who got Jimenez her job.
Lopez's attorney has denied Jimenez's accusations against his client.
Greg Sandoval, vice president of student affairs, is also named in the suit...
