Georgetown student files lawsuit against Barry Freundel

By: Cody Boteler, Senior Editor

A Georgetown Law student filed a lawsuit yesterday against Barry Freundel, the Rabbi and suspended TU professor accused of six counts of voyeurism, as well as the National Capital Mikvah and Georgetown Law School.

This comes a day after Freundel had his contract terminated by Kesher Israel, the synagogue where he was working.

The case is seeking class action status, which would allow other parties to join in on the lawsuit.

The Towerlight has previously reported that Fruendel had invited students of his class to the mikvah, the ritual bath where he had been allegedly filming women as they were changing out of their clothes to prepare for the bath.

According to the Baltimore Sun, some Towson University students have told police that, in addition to being invited, some students accepted the invitation to use the bath.

Freundel is scheduled for a hearing in D.C. Superior Court on Jan. 16.
