Lawyers representing Indiana’s attorney general have argued that the allegations of him drunkenly groping four women during a party do not meet the legal standard of a misuse of power.
Hill is accused of touching the backs or backsides of a state lawmaker and three legislative staffers at an Indianapolis bar. The women allege sexual harassment and defamation by Hill.
Court documents filed on Republican state Attorney General Curtis Hill’s behalf call for the women’s federal lawsuit against him to be thrown out by a judge, stating that "the alleged conduct is no different than that which might occur in bars anywhere."
The attorney general’s office argues the lawsuit’s claims against the state should be dismissed, in part, because the women work for the legislative branch and Hill not their employer.
