Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Headed To Mediation

A sexual harassment lawsuit involving a former lawmaker is headed to mediation.  The Courier-Journal reports attorneys for all sides have agreed to mediation in an effort to resolve the case.

The lawsuit was filed by former state worker Yolanda Costner and current state employee Cassaundra Cooper, who at one time both worked for the Democratic House leadership. They say former Democratic state Rep. John Arnold sexually harassed them multiple times over several years and that the Legislative Research Commission worked to cover it up. Arnold has denied the allegations.

Attorneys for the women and the LRC, who is named as a defendant, say a closed mediation session has been set for May 26.
