State employee files $19 million sexual harassment lawsuit

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – An Alaska state employee who says she was sexually harassed and physically injured by a supervisor has filed a $19 million sexual harassment lawsuit. The Anchorage Daily News reports Kenai juvenile justice worker Toni Prins also says she was given a poor job performance review after she complained. State officials deny that Prins has a valid claim and last month asked that the lawsuit be dismissed. The lawsuit says Prins’ supervisor began to harass her in April 2016 and nothing was done when she complained. The lawsuit says the supervisor injured her during a training session intended to teach safe restraint.
