A Johnson County man claimed a woman made defamatory statements about him while both were employed as physicians at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Robert Raw filed a lawsuit against Melissa Koshel on Tuesday.

According to court documents, Koshel made defamatory statements to colleagues and officials about Raw in 2010, alleging he was sexually harassing her and inappropriately touched her and others who worked at UIHC.

Raw claimed Koshel knew the allegations were false, and a UI investigation didn’t find enough evidence to support the allegations of misconduct, Raw said in court documents.

Raw said he suffered damage to his reputation and noticed exclusion in the workplace.
