Trial set for Laurel Lake fire department sex harassment case
 

Issue Detail:

 
Trial is scheduled to begin on Monday, January 23, 2012 in the civil case of Wooton v. Commercial Township Board of Fire Commissioners, Docket No. CUM-L-1211-08. This case was filed by Rebecca Wooton, who says that while serving as an EMT/Firefighter for the Laurel Lake Fire Company, she was subjected to \"pervasive acts of sexual harassment by\" other firefighters \"including but not limited to the co-defendant Lou Turner.\" Specifically, Wooton alleges that Turner touched her \"on her buttock and breast and otherwise assaulted\" her. The lawsuit and related documents are on-line here. Her complaint also names former Laurel Lake Fire Chief Timothy Clement and claims that Clement \"aided and abetted the acts of sexual harassment . . . and/or failed to abate, remedy or otherwise\" resolve the conduct of which Wooton complained. Clement has since retired to Spearsville, Louisiana where he serves as mayor. The trial, which has been schedule and postponed several times, is presently slated to begin on January 23, 2012 before Cumberland County Superior Court Judge Richard G. Geiger. Wooton\'s attorney is Richard M. Pescatore of Vineland. Note: A civil complaint is only an accusation. No evidence has yet been offered as to whether Turner, Clement or any other person involved with the Laurel Lake Fire Company did anything wrong.
