Lawsuit against jailer settled

Former employee had alleged sexual harassment against Harris


Somerset —

Moses, was seeking a jury trial and punitive and compensatory damages.
Norfleet stated on Wednesday he and Moses are “very happy” with the case’s resolution.
“We were pleased to see the Pulaski County government step up so quickly after the filing of the suit to reach a financial settle(ment) of (Moses’) claims,” Norfleet stated. “The facts of this case are extremely disturbing, especially because they involve elected officials. Women have an unquestionable right to a work environment free from such sexually harassing conduct.”
Norfleet, when asked about the specifics of the settlement agreement, referred a reporter with the Commonwealth Journal to county officials. 
An open records request seeking that information was filed with the county late Wednesday afternoon.
