Of course Tumpkin is responsible. But why is his employer?

I've expressed ZERO sympathy for Tumpkin, nor has anyone on this Board (that I've seen). If guilty, his actions are reprehensible and he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

My point is solely that CU should not be held liable for the actions of its employee. This is a private, criminal matter and should be handled as such.

Put this situation in any other context: if I abused my wife, would she: 1) call my boss or 2) sue my company? Of course not. My ass would be where it belonged: in a jail cell.

Yes, Tumpkin is ultimately responsible for this situation occurring in the first place. But the fact that CU is wrongfully indicted in a private matter is due to two simple facts: 1) the alleged victim inexplicably calling Tumpkin's boss instead of the police and 2) the victim's decision to seek to profit from domestic abuse by suing Tumpkin's employer.
