LOUISVILLE, Ky., (WDRB) – A Louisville Metro Police lieutenant has filed a lawsuit against the department and Metro Government, claiming she was sexually harassed by another officer and the department tried to cover it up.
The officer, who is not being named by WDRB News because she is an alleged victim of sexual harassment, filed the lawsuit in Jefferson Circuit Court on Tuesday through attorneys Thomas Clay and Pete Lay.
