The alleged victims of former University of Illinois Professor Gary Xu were given at least 30 more days to find him, a federal magistrate judge said Friday.


The alleged victims are seeking damages and unpaid wages on 10 counts, including emotional distress, gender violence, involuntary servitude, forced labor and sex trafficking.

On his way out, the UI paid Xu $10,000, according to his separation agreement.
