Sexual harassment and assault by female LSE staff

results in largest lawsuits in history of Higher Education


High Court finds LSE in Breach of Duty of Care and in Breach of Contract

in the Largest Lawsuits in the History of Higher Education

Dr Theodore Piepenbrock:

“My family and I are pleased with the outcome of this landmark High Court trial. The judgment that the LSE was found to be in multiple breaches of its duty of care as well as in breach of contract is entirely unsurprising as Lord Chief Justice Woolf’s high-profile LSE ethics investigation revealed serious ethics, management and governance failures at the LSE.  The High Court’s damning indictment of the LSE is crucial to litigating my multi-million pound Employment Tribunal case against the LSE.”

Lord Chief Justice Woolf:

“A disconcerting number of failures in communication and governance within the LSE.”

“The mistakes and errors of judgment go beyond those that could be expected from an institution of the LSE’s distinction.”

“The pattern is such that I am driven to the conclusion that there were shortcoming in the governance structure and management at the LSE.”

“It falls down on the first hurdle in not having an Ethics Code, adopted by the institution, which sets out clearly the values, principles and procedures which everyone associated with the LSE ought to comply.  The establishment and embedding of this code is the highest priority.”

“The onslaught undoubted seriously damaged the LSE’s reputation.       It caused significant distress to staff, students & academics at the LSE.”

High Court finds Obsessive LSE Stalker was Infatuated with

Award-winning Internationally-renowned Economist

High Court Judgment:

“It is now apparent that she [Miss D] had become infatuated with the claimant... showing ‘dog-like devotion’.”

“...Miss D’s style of dress was inappropriate, she would often be in short skirts and low-cut tops. ...Miss D was not dressing appropriately to represent the LSE.”

“...Miss D’s ‘obsessive’ behaviour, her dress and how she acted towards the claimant...”

“...behaviour bizarre...”

“Miss D had developed something of an infatuation for the claimant.”

“...Miss D did behave in a provocative, even sexually provocative manner towards the claimant, it would not be inconsistent with her previous behaviour at the LSE.”

“I accept that Miss D’s conduct... caused the claimant considerable concern.”

“There is nothing in the evidence before the court to suggest that the claimant positively encouraged any behaviour or advances by Miss D...”


Joanne Hay, senior LSE administrator, ‘wretched drunken nightmare’ & spurned perpetrator of sexual assault, illegally defamed the Claimant.

Highest-paid Director in LSE history, Nemat Shafik, refuses to investigate gross sexual misconduct by females.

Senior LSE Administrator, Joanne Hay

initiated a drunken sexual-assault

on an unsuspecting LSE professor.

Ms Hay, who was publicly-humiliated in the High Court trial, harbours a malicious vendetta against the innocent Dr Piepenbrock for rejecting her drunken sexual advance at the LSE, and illegally defamed him in the media.

LSE postgraduate teaching assistant

(dressed as a call-girl/escort/prostitute)

stalked & exposed herself to award-winning LSE professor.

High Court Judgment:

“My view is that those [LSE staff] who were purporting to deal with the matter were passing the buck, one to the other, disclaiming any responsibility for decisive action.

“In my judgment there were a series of failures on the part of the defendant to properly manage... Miss D. Each of these failures represented a breach of the duty of care owed by the defendant to the claimant.”

Dr Theodore Piepenbrock:

“I am an economist, not an escort.  The LSE can not force me (or any other happily-married parent) to have sex with any LSE student or employee as a precondition of their employment at the LSE.

The LSE must stop violating UK law and investigate all grievances of gross sexual misconduct - even if perpetrated by females - as in the cases of ‘Ms D’ and Joanne Hay.”
