In episode 3 of the Valley News’ collaboration with CATV, news editor John Gregg talks with reporter Nora Doyle-Burr about a $70 million class-action lawsuit that seven female science students filed against Dartmouth College in mid-November, alleging sexual harassment and assault by three former professors.
Then, staff photographer James M. Patterson joins Gregg and Doyle-Burr to talk about the story of Mandy Dube, a Unity resident who sued the state of New Hampshire nearly five years ago in a different class-action suit brought on behalf of people with serious mental illness. Patterson has followed Dube’s story for 8 years and he and Doyle-Burr checked in with Dube — and the state of New Hampshire’s mental health care system — for a story in a recent edition of the Sunday Valley News.
