“Thomas Pogge has been the subject of two official complaints of sexual misconduct, one at Yale and one at Columbia.”

– Professor Heidi Lockwood

We do not know the precise details of the findings of the committee that investigated him at Columbia, but it was serious enough to warrant the issuance of an order which prohibited him from being within the vicinity of the student that complained. At Yale, he was charged with “unprofessional conduct” because the committee found that he was indeed trying to convert the relationship with his student and subordinate from a professional to a personal, more intimate relationship. The committee, however, did not charge him with harassment, but this is now going to be contested with a lawsuit.
