LOS ANGELES (AP) — A newspaper reports Occidental College has reached a confidential agreement with students who accused the school's athletic director of sexual harassment.
The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/PEw0bZ ) says three male students filed a federal complaint against Occidental, saying John Sweet made inappropriate remarks and physical contact.
The 60-year-old Sweet resigned from his post last year.
Terms of the agreement have not been disclosed by the attorney representing the students or the liberal arts college.
Occidental last year reached a monetary settlement with at least 10 current and former students who alleged authorities mishandled sexual assault allegations.
