A former professor who sued Open University for allegedly forcing her to resign after she complained of sexual harassment has been branded a liar by the presiding judge. Jasmine Ng Ai-kheng claimed damages for wrongful dismissal and the wrongful disposal of personal effects after she was forced to resign in June 2000. But High Court deputy judge Ian Carlson said the university had been 'unnecessarily understanding' in allowing Dr Ng to resign after finding she had seriously neglected her duties, and then fabricated documents and told lies to cover it up. 'She lied to cover up her failure to do important work that she should have done, and she has told lies in court to advance her case,' Judge Carlson said. Dr Ng alleged that her performance appraisals began to slip only after she complained of sexual harassment. She further alleged that her complaints went unheeded and were the catalyst for her forced resignation.
