Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790,314 645 5915 home, email@example.com)
A Boston University musician who faces a recent, pending civil lawsuit charging that he sexually harassed two college students apparently was or is teaching high school kids for two week at Tanglewood in western Massachusetts. This is an extraordinarily careless and reckless move. We urge BU President Robert A. Brown (the highest paid college president in the state) to reverse this move, keep Eric Ruske off campus and away from teenagers and young people at any BU site or program and apologize for his irresponsible behavior.
In April, in a civil lawsuit, Ruske was accused of repeatedly sexually harassing two college students.
