Storey County Sheriff Gerald Antinoro faces another lawsuit by a deputy claiming she was sexually harassed and was unwillingly transferred out of the department to work as a court bailiff.
The lawsuit was filed nearly four months after the sheriff survived a recall election that stemmed from various allegations of misconduct such as sexual harassment, wrongful terminations, ethical violations and budget problems.
Las Vegas Attorney Gus Flangas said his client, Melanie Keener, mulled over the decision to file a lawsuit against her former employer for several months.
“This is a decision that wasn’t taken lightly,” Flangas said last week. “She really thought long and hard about this. It wasn’t a decision that was made in haste.”
