Clinton County Sheriff’s Office files motion to dismiss allegations
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (WCAX) - The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office is asking a judge to dismiss a sexual harassment and gender discrimination lawsuit brought by former employees.
The most recent of three cases against the department was brought in April by Regina Moore, a former corrections officer at the Clinton County Jail. It accuses the sheriff’s office of enabling inappropriate behavior and unfair treatment.
The motion filed Wednesday claims the “Plaintiff’s complaint asserts a series of untimely, suppositious and unjustifiable claims that aim to be provocative, in an effort to garner media attention.”
Another former corrections officer and a former deputy also decided to sue the sheriff’s office within the last year.
