Berrien County Jail sexual harassment lawsuit dismissed

NOW: Berrien County Jail sexual harassment lawsuit dismissed

A federal judge dismissed the sexual harassment lawsuit against the Berrien County Jail and three of its former corrections officers.

Brittany Stanage, a former inmate, filed the lawsuit along with ten other women.

She claimed a former officer at the Berrien County Jail tried to coerce her into having sex.

Attorneys for the defendants argued the 3-year statute of limitations had expired and that the women's civil rights were not violated.

On Thursday, a federal judge in Kalamazoo agreed and dismissed the suit.

The women are considering an appeal.
