Ex-Corrections Medical Director Sues Over Harassment Claims



BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The fired medical director of Louisiana's corrections department is suing the agency, claiming sexual harassment allegations lodged against him are false and defamatory.

The Advocate reports Dr. Raman Singh filed the lawsuit Monday in district court. Singh is seeking damages from the department, Corrections Secretary Jimmy LeBlanc and his accuser.

The lawsuit says the employee accused Singh of sexually harassing her last month at a conference at the Golden Nugget Casino and hotel in Lake Charles. Singh denies the accusation. He's asking a judge to declare him factually and legally innocent of sexual harassment.

Corrections department spokesman Ken Pastorick told The Associated Press on Tuesday the agency doesn't comment on pending litigation. He confirmed Singh was terminated this month.

The Associated Press is not naming the employee, who wouldn't comment on the allegations.
