Candelaria Reardon said the lawsuit seeks "institutional change."

"When an elected official betrays the trust, the public trust, in such an egregious way so as to commit sexual battery and assault and doesn't have the honor to resign, to maintain the dignity of the office, there have to be consequences for those actions and there have to be options to hold him accountable," she said.

Neither the attorney general's office nor a private attorney who has represented Hill immediately responded to requests for comment on the lawsuit. Hill's attorneys have said the special prosecutor's decision "exonerates and absolves Mr. Curtis Hill of any factual and legal criminal behavior."

Hill faces an October hearing on possible sanctions from the state Supreme Court on allegations that he committed professional misconduct at the party, which could lead to his disbarment as an attorney.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill defiantly rejected calls to resign on Monday, saying his name "has been dragged through the gutter" amid allegations that he inappropriately touched a lawmaker and several other women. The Republican said during a news

As top Indiana Republican leaders call for his resignation, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill claims his innocence in the face of sexual harassment allegations . Kelly Wilkinson/IndyStar, Indianapolis Star.

Hill, a Republican who was elected in 2016 to a term that runs through the end of 2020, called the women's allegations "vicious and false" during a news conference shortly after they became public last summer.

The lawsuit maintains that Hill's comments to reporters and in social media posts defamed the women and hurt their professional reputations. It seeks unspecified monetary damages from the state and Hill personally, an apology from Hill for his denials and an injunction ordering the state to adopt tougher sexual harassment policies.

Niki DaSilva, a legislative assistant for the Indiana Senate Republican Caucus, described keeping her Statehouse office door locked when she was inside after her allegations against Hill became public in fear that Hill or someone working for him would walk in. The women said they also avoided some work-related social events because of uncomfortable reactions from legislators or other staff members.

Hannah Kaufman Joseph, an attorney for the women, said the state has no consistent policy regarding sexual harassment covering lawmakers, statewide elected officials, lobbyists and staff members and faulted it for not seeking independent investigations of such allegations.

"The state of Indiana has simply failed to adequately protect the individuals that work in and around the Statehouse — all of them — as required by federal law," she said.
