Catholic University of America is going ahead with its plan for single-sex residence halls despite a complaint filed on July 14 by Professor John Banzhaf, known for his lawsuits over fast food and women's bathrooms.
In a July 19 statement provided to CNA, the university said it “is moving ahead with its plans to house the incoming class of freshman in single-sex residence halls when they arrive on campus next month.”
The university said it received a copy of Banzhaf's complaint and will study it, but it remains “confident that the law does not require that men and women be housed together in residence halls.”
Banzhaf filed the complaint with the District of Columbia Office of Human Rights, saying the University is practicing illegal sex discrimination by eliminating mixed-gender dormitories.
