The committee heard testimony from a panel of supporters of

University of Oklahoma Law Professor Anita Hill to begin the third

day of the reopened Supreme Court confirmation hearings for U.S.

Court of Appeals Judge Clarence Thomas. The four panelists testified

in support of Professor Hill’s charges Judge Thomas sexually harassed

her when she worked for him in the Department of Education and later

the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in the early 1980's.

Professor Paul, American University law professor who met Professor

Hill when she was conducting summer research at American University,

testified Professor Hill told him in 1987 of the sexual harassment

that took place in the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Ms.

Wells, friend of Professor Hill’s and acquaintance of Judge Thomas,

testified Professor Hill told her of sexual harassment in the early

1980's. She also said she understood how Professor Hill felt during

the harassment and in testifying, as she said she had been a victim

of sexual harassment herself. Mr. Carr said Prof. Hill told him in

the early 1980's about the sexual harassment, and said Judge Thomas

showed an “unwanted sexual interest in her.” Ms. Hoerchner, fellow

classmate at Yale Law School with Professor Hill, also testified

Professor Hill told her she was being sexually harassed in the early

1980's. close
