CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA)– Lawyers are trying to serve a former U of I professor accused of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, but they don’t know where he is. Gary Xu was head of the East Asian Languages and Culture Department. He resigned in 2018. A lawsuit accuses him of abuse including rape, forced labor, and beatings.
Lawyers for the plaintiffs say they’ve been trying to serve him since they filed the lawsuit. They say other measures could be taken if they remain unable to make contact.
