UC Berkeley Professor Resigns After Backlash from Alleged Sexual Harassment

UC Berkeley astronomy professor Geoffrey Marcy, considered one of the world's top experts on planets outside our solar system, stepped down Wednesday in the wake of a sexual harassment investigation. The school's six-month investigation concluded that Marcy violated campus sexual harassment policies from 2001 to 2010, with women alleging inappropriate touching and massages. The university had initially placed him on probation, a decision that was criticized as being too lax.
