Judge dismisses Cuomo from woman's sexual harassment lawsuit

Judge dismisses Cuomo from woman's sexual harassment lawsuit

June 22, 2018 10:07 AM

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A judge has dismissed all complaints against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state made in a lawsuit filed by a woman who says a former Cuomo appointee sexually harassed her.
    
Lisa Marie Cater's federal lawsuit claimed the Democrat ignored her complaint that William "Sam" Hoyt harassed and groped her after helping Cater find a place to live and a state job in Buffalo.
    
At the time of the alleged harassment, Hoyt was a regional president for the state's main economic development agency. The former assemblyman resigned last October, a day before Cater's sexual harassment claims emerged.
    
A federal judge on Thursday granted the state's motion to dismiss Cuomo and the state from the lawsuit's complaint, citing lack of facts to support Cater's contention that Cuomo knew about the alleged harassment.
