The federal lawsuit by four women who accused Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill of groping them in 2018 was dismissed, however the women are not giving up as they have sued once again, this time in state court.
The lawsuit document states in its opening that the suit was filed in Marion County, because all of the “unlawful acts” occurred there. The lawsuit alleges battery, defamation and false light invasion of privacy.
The lawsuit states the women are seeking monetary damages from Hill, though it does not specify how much. It also seeks to have Hill take back all statements made by him that the women consider defamatory, which Hill essentially had to do in accepting his discipline from the Indiana Supreme Court.
Hill was forced to take a one-month hiatus from his job, but remained in office, after his law license was suspended for one month. The federal suit was dismissed because the accusations against Hill by the women did not meet the legal standard to be a violation of federal law.
Since then, Hill was defeated for the Republican nomination for attorney general by former congressman and secretary of state Todd Rokita.
