The hearing officer in Attorney General Curtis Hill’s disciplinary case says the Republican official’s law license should be suspended for 60 days.

Hill is accused of groping four women at a party in March 2018.

The Indiana Disciplinary Commission filed a complaint last year. And after a four-day hearing in October – and months of briefs and deliberations – hearing officer Myra Selby issued her recommendation.

There are new allegations from the women suing Attorney General Curtis Hill and the state over accusations Hill groped them last year.

Three legislative staffers – Samantha Lozano, Gabrielle McLemore, and Niki DaSilva – and Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon (D-Munster) sued Curtis Hill and the state earlier this year. They level allegations of sexual harassment and employment retaliation.

A new filing in that case claims Lozano reported “unwelcome and inappropriate advances” by a male member of the General Assembly to the House Democratic chief of staff this past spring.
