Kentucky judge seals testimony in sexual harassment suit

A state judge has temporarily sealed the testimony of a Democratic lieutenant governor candidate in a sexual harassment lawsuit.

State Rep. Sannie Overly is scheduled to give a deposition on Monday in a lawsuit brought by a pair of state workers who say they were sexually harassed by former Democratic state Rep. John Arnold. But Overly, through her attorney, has asked that her deposition be sealed because she is not a party in the case and is concerned that others would take her testimony out of context and use it for political reasons.

Overly is the running mate of likely Democratic nominee for governor Jack Conway.

The judge also decided to temporarily seal the deposition of Bobby Sherman, the former director of the Legislative Research Commission.
