To the Editor:
After nearly five years of litigation, the class action suit charging the State University of New York at Stony Brook with sex discrimination (Coser vs. Moore) is about to go to trial. The suit, scheduled for the Winter 1980 calendar of the First Eastern District Federal Court, includes twenty-eight academic and professional women who are name plaintiffs, among them several members of the nursing faculty at the Health Science Center. The University is charged with discrimination against women in hiring, promotion, tenure award, and salaries. In addition, the suit includes cases of women professionals who were given the duties of higher-level positions without commensurate titles and salaries.
