PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A University of New England professor has reached a settlement with the school over sexual harassment claims.

The Morning Sentinel reports an attorney representing Lara Carlson and a university spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday that a settlement had been reached. Both sides declined to share the details of the agreement.

The 2016 federal suit alleged that Exercise and Sport Performance Department chair Paul Visich made inappropriate comments in 2012. According to Carlson, Visich gave her bad performance evaluations after she reported the harassment. Carlson said she was later transferred out of the department and removed from teaching a class she had developed.



The University of New England said in response to the suit that Carlson had “failed to take advantage of the corrective opportunities provided by UNE.”
