The student attended LaGuardia Community College (pictured) when she alleges that the harassment occurred
A university professor supposedly offered good grades to a student if she agreed to "make things easier" for her by having sex with him.
An undergraduate student says her human anatomy professor at LaGuardia Community College, Hany Fam, offered her better qualifications in exchange for sex, claims a lawsuit in a federal court in Brooklyn.
In a lawsuit filed by the New York Post, the forty-year-old student who did not receive her name says she asked Fam for a meeting in October 2017 to discuss the grades.
The married teacher, 60, insisted they be in her apartment, say court documents.
& # 39; Fearing that she would offend her teacher and perhaps jeopardize her grade in her class, [she] Finally gave in, "says the suit.
Fam arrived in his Brooklyn apartment and gave him a bottle of wine and a kiss on the cheek, court documents say.
He sat on the couch and told her he was "alone" and that he had problems in his marriage, the lawsuit states.
"He unbuttoned his shirt to reveal a scar and claimed to have a heart condition that left him a few years of life," says the lawsuit.
The student "got up and went to the kitchen, but Professor Fam followed her, leaned over to hug her and told her to relax."
After serving two glasses of wine, which the woman says she refused to drink, Fam said she could make things much easier for her and repeatedly asked if she would be her friend.
When the woman asked if the friend was a code for "sex", she confirmed that yes, according to the demand.
"He suggested that they meet once a week and they told him [her] "It would not be" so difficult "for her because of her heart condition," court documents state.

Fam also said that other teachers have similar agreements with students, according to the lawsuit.
When the student made "unequivocal expressions of disinterest, the teacher" became aggravated and told the plaintiff that she was too tense.
Upon leaving, Fam handed him what appeared to be questions and answers for the scheduled questionnaire the next day and told him [her] think about your offer. "
The woman did not return to Fam's class and reported it to the university's Title IX office, which handles complaints of sexual harassment.
The school concluded that Fam 'offered [her] a good grade in exchange for sexual favors, "according to the lawsuit.
A spokeswoman for LaGuardia told the Post that the teacher's last day of class was the day the student's complaint was filed on November 7 and that he was dismissed on January 11, 2018.
Richard & # 39; Ric & # 39; Curtis, an expert in illegal drug markets, was removed from John Jay Criminal College while allegedly presiding over a world of drug use and sex in an isolated building.
"He is not eligible to work at LaGuardia at any time in the future," spokeswoman Elizabeth Streich said.
The public school located in the city of Long Island, which offers two-year degrees, also agreed to provide advice to women.
He also offered to cover the costs of course materials and re-enrollment in the class, but did not eliminate his "withdrawal" from the class in his transcript.
The woman is represented by Carrie Goldberg, the Brooklyn attorney who backs at least two accusers of Harvey Weinstein.
She states that her life has taken a dark turn due to the "emotional stress" of the test.
She has even felt insecure in her own home because Professor Fam knows where she lives, the lawsuit says.
The plaintiff told the Post that she wants to maintain her anonymity because they are afraid of the repercussions.
"Obviously he's not a good person, so I do not know how far he could go, he scares a single woman who lives alone."
The case comes after a series of accusations that professors at CUNY's John Jay Criminal Justice School violated and tried to pressure students and used and sold drugs on campus.
The case is now being investigated by the Manhattan District Attorney's Office and the State Inspector General.
The formal complaints of sexual harassment against four teachers are being investigated by the CUNY school funded by the taxpayers and two alleged victims decided to make it public.
