BOSTON-- Harvard University goes to court next week to defend itself in a sex-discrimination suit brought by a researcher at its school of public health. Barring an unexpected last-minute settlement, it would be the first such case against Harvard brought to trial by a scientist and only the second such case to be heard by a jury. It will also shine a spotlight on Harvard Provost Harvey Fineberg, who attended last month's meeting on equitable treatment of women at elite U.S. research universities.
