The complaints against Hill stem from a party in March at an Indianapolis bar attended by lawmakers, lobbyist and legislative staffers celebrating the end of that year's legislative session. Hill was accused of circling the bar and inappropriately touching the four women, including then state Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon, who is now a Democratic candidate for Congress, according to the complaint. Reardon claimed that Hill touched her "bare back, rubbing his hand down her back down to or just above her buttocks without her consent," according to the court's ruling.
Three other female legislative staffers, all in their 20s, claimed they were subjected to similar behavior. One claimed Hill groped her buttocks, another accused him of rubbing her back without her consent and a third accused him of putting his arm around her waist and pulling her toward him.
Several prominent Indiana politicians, including Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb, have called on Hill, who is up for reelection this year, to re. After a special prosecutor investigated the allegations and decided not to file criminal charges against Hill, the four women who accused him filed a federal lawsuit in June alleging the state of Indiana inadequately protected Statehouse employees from sexual harassment and workplace retaliation. The lawsuit has yet to be resolved. At the time the legal action was taken, Candelaria Reardon said she hoped it would spur "institutional change.
During a news conference on Monday shortly after the court ruling was made public, Holcomb said "obviously, this decision bolsters the case of the victims going forward on the route that they're on. We'll see," Holcomb said. Holcomb said he has been seeking guidance from his legal team on what steps to take next and will be announcing them soon. Lauren Ganapini, executive director of the Indiana Democratic Party, said Holcomb and other state Republican leaders should force Hill to step down. LOG IN. We'll notify you here with news about.
