"According to the investigations, Professor Katze asked her to clean his apartment, purchase marijuana and Percocet for him, email escorts and place personal ads for him, and schedule his manicures, pedicures, haircuts, and hair lightening appointments."

Can't wait for the movie version of this story from the University of Washington. Here's a sample,
from BuzzFeed:

One of the employees was an administrator whom Katze had hired, at an unusually high salary, on the implicit condition that she submit to his sexual demands. He personally rewarded this woman, known as Mary Roe in some court documents, with “thousands or even tens of thousands” of dollars a year in cash and gifts, the investigation found.

When pressed about his treatment of employees, however, Katze told the university investigator: “My job is to get grants. I am singularly focused on training scientists. This kind of shit is completely unimportant to me.”
