BP: Judge denies request to dismiss harassment lawsuit against Honor the Earth


DETROIT LAKES -- A district judge this month denied a request to dismiss a sexual harassment lawsuit against the environmental organization Honor the Earth, claiming that the state has sufficient jurisdiction to hear the case even though it has ties to a tribal nation.

The judge, Gretchen Thilmony, issued a memorandum on her decision July 2. A former employee of the organization, Margaret Campbell, filed the lawsuit in February in Becker County, arguing that another employee repeatedly harassed her and that the organization brushed aside her complaints.
