Former law student Jennifer Sisk, has alleged that her former Professor at University of Colorado Law School and current SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch suggested in a class discussion that women abuse their ability to get paid maternity leave. At the time of the incident, she reported it to Dean and assistant Dean of Students.

According to NPR,

‘It seemed to me that was in the past,” Sisk said. ‘So I was surprised sitting in this class, hearing this in April of 2016, and thinking that even a professor that I respected, that I see as so bright, so well-versed in the law, could also not only hold these views, but was so comfortable expressing them to a room full of law students, including female law students that he the same semester had offered to mentor.’

Other students have disputed the incident.
