ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Dr. Johan Blickman, the University of Rochester doctor accused of rape, has filed a countersuit against his accuser.
In State Supreme court documents filed in January, Katia Kaplan-List accuses Blickman of drugging and raping her, then threatening to sabotage her career if she reported anything to authorities.
Blickman is professor of pediatrics and a URMC faculty member.
In the countersuit Blickman claims he and Kaplan-List were involved in a consensual relationship and after it ended the U or R received a complaint against him.
He says that complaint was investigated and in a written decision the university concluded it was consensual.
Adding Blickman did not violate the U of R's sexual harassment and discrimination policy.
Blickman is suing for libel and defamation.
