INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill is being sued for a second time by the same four women that sued him in 2018.

The first case was dismissed because the only accusation against him that involved federal law was a sexual harassment claim. The judge ruled that since Hill wasn’t the women’s employer, there was no basis for the charge.

This time, the women are suing Hill in a Marion County State Court. The suit alleges battery, defamation, and invasion of privacy. It also says the women are seeking monetary compensation from Hill, though it does not specify how much.

The Indiana Supreme Court forced Hill to take a one-month hiatus from his job. However, he has continued to remain in office. Earlier this month, former congressman and Secretary of State, Todd Rokita defeated Hill for the Republican nomination for Attorney General.
