    for the environment within which the alleged harrassment took place, that is, even in cases between peers (students harassing other students) policies need to be in place to handle situations when they do occur.  To say there is "nothing they can do" is the unacceptable part, and my guess would be therein lies the potential for the lawsuit.

    Schools do have a responsibility to protect students from one another when potential danger, potential abuse or potential harassment is reported.  If this school has no such policy (as might be inferred if the dean told her there was nothing he could do), then that is an area that needs to be addressed.  Often, these areas only get addressed in the aftermath of lawsuits.
