The House Ethics Committee has sanctioned Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Ruben Kihuen (D-Nev.) over their handling of sexual harassment allegations.

The details: The committee found the allegations against the congressmen to be credible, thus violating House rules "by failing to take appropriate steps to ensure that his House office was free from discrimination and any perception of discrimination."

Dartmouth College is being sued by seven women over sexual assault, harassment and discrimination claims targeting three prominent male professors, the New York Times reports.

Details: The three men — William Kelly, Todd Heatherton, and Paul Whalen — were removed from their positions after an investigation last October concluded that they should be "stripped of their tenure and lose their jobs," per the Times. The lawsuit details allegations going back to 2002 and says Dartmouth ignored complaints of sexual misconduct. The seven plaintiffs are seeking $70 million in damages.
