HUNTINGTON -- A Huntington woman is suing a local physician after she claims he made unwanted sexual advances toward her.

On May 13, 2009, Crystal Bradley was referred to Dr. John Pellegrini, an osteopathic medicine physician, for evaluation and medical treatment, according to a complaint filed May 6 in Cabell Circuit Court.

Bradley claims during the visit Pellegrini willfully, wantonly, grossly negligently embraced, touched and made sexual advances toward her.

As a result of Pellegrini's actions, Bradley sustained severe emotional and mental distress; humiliation; anxiety; embarrassment; depression; aggravation; annoyance and inconvenience; fear; sleeplessness; difficulty in relationships with her significant others; and distrust of others, according to the suit.

Bradley is seeking judgment against the defendant in an amount as allowed by law. She is being represented by Stephen P. Meyer.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.

Cabell Circuit Court case number: 11-C-291
