T. Florian Jaeger accused by 14 female students at Rochester UA renowned University of Rochester professor who has worked here for a decade has been accused in a federal complaint of having sexual relationships and using illegal drugs with students; making inappropriate, humiliating or condescending comments to and about female students and faculty; and pressuring them to meet with him alone.

Since the allegations surfaced publicly in early September against psycholinguistics professor T. Florian Jaeger, 41, the number of alleged victims has grown to 14, according to managing partner Jef McAllister of McAllister Olivarius law firm, the complainants’ legal team.

Psycholinguistics is the study of the psychological and neuroscientific processes that allow people to use and understand language, and Jaeger was at the forefront of that research.

The private university itself is accused of protecting Jaeger, even going so far as to retaliate against those who complained about his behavior before relief was sought from the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The two who wrote a letter to the university Board of Trustees have been past department chairpersons who have worked a total of 57 years for the University of Rochester.
