AP reports that a US court dismissed a lawsuit against former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for sexual harassment. Amid the scandal, the politician resigned as head of state.
Cuomo was accused of inappropriate behavior in early 2021. In particular, the former assistant to the governor stated that he “got his hand under her blouse.” This allegation formed the basis of the formal charges brought forward. The politician was facing a year of imprisonment.
However, in November it turned out that the lawsuit was drawn up with violations – it did not contain certified testimonies of the victim and evidence of the crime. Cuomo's lawyers have petitioned to dismiss the case.
