A district attorney in Calumet County resigned from his job in 2010 after allegedly attempting to initiate an affair with a woman while he was simultaneously prosecuting her ex-boyfriend for a situation involving domestic abuse. In the wake of the sexual harassment suit filed by the woman after his advances, the state Office of Lawyer Regulation has urged the Supreme Court to suspend his law license for six months, and his Feb. 19 trial will reveal whether or not the state goes through with this recommendation.
An experienced workplace rights lawyer, however, can help these victims seek compensation. Wisconsin state law protects victims of harassment, who may file a claim to hold their harassers liable for their unprofessional and lewd conduct.
