CHARLESTON - A lawsuit concerning alleged harassment and threats made to a former Medford Trucking employee has been dismissed.
Medford Transport LLC; Medford Holding LLC; Kevin Medford; Roger Medford; and Cindy Medford were also named as defendants in the suit.
A Notice of Dismissal was filed on Jan. 25 in Kanawha Circuit Court stating that the plaintiff, Debbie Ann Bowes, dismissed the action with prejudice.
In her lawsuit, Bowes had claimed she was subjected to unwelcome and offensive sexual advances, solicitations, sexual remarks, unwanted physical touching and sexual innuendo by Kevin Medford and when she reported the conduct to Roger Medford, he ignored her complaints and engaged in making sexually explicit unwelcome comments to her, according to a complaint filed Jan. 9 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Bowes had also claimed Cindy Medford had published false and slanderous statements to Bowes' husband, including that she was having an affair with Kevin Medford and that Cindy Medford told her husband she was going to kill Bowes.
Bowes was represented by Maria W. Hughes and Mark Goldner of Hughes & Goldner PLLC. The defendants were represented by Ancil G. Ramey of Steptoe & Johnson PLLC.
The case was assigned to Circuit Judge Paul Zakaib Jr.
