University of Michigan has placed Provost Martin A. Philbert on administrative leave following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. According to reports, Philbert is facing several allegations of sexual misconduct, which were brought to the University on January 16 and 17.  Philbert has been with the University since 1995 and was appointed provost in 2017.  U of M President Mark Schlissel has pledged a “full and thorough investigation.”  The Division of Public Safety and Security as well as an outside law firm have been reviewing the allegations.

The recent accusations against Philbert come on the heels of sexual misconduct complaints made against two other U of M professors: Stephen Shipps and David Daniels.

The sexual assault attorneys at Grewal Law have been fighting for the rights of victims for decades, and they have made it their mission to stop institutional involvement in sexual abuse.  Grewal Law represented a third of the plaintiffs in the MSU and Larry Nassar lawsuits who obtained a half a billion dollar settlement from MSU – a settlement the Grewal Law attorneys were instrumental in obtaining.  The nationally known lawyers at Grewal Law are currently fighting to hold USAG accountable for its role in allowing Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse to occur. Grewal Law remains involved in helping over 100 Survivors in the case against USAG, and Grewal Law attorneys are available 24/7 to help anyone who has questions about this lawsuit.
