Two legislative workers have filed a lawsuit accusing former state Rep. John Arnold of sexual harassment.
Arnold, who resigned as a lawmaker last month, has denied the allegations. He said in the resignation letter that he had been "destroyed politically" and could no longer be an effective voice for his constituents.
The Courier-Journal reports the lawsuit seeks compensatory damages, but doesn't list an exact amount.
Meanwhile, House Speaker Greg Stumbo has appointed a committee to investigate the allegations against Arnold.
