WEST HAVEN, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – A Connecticut woman has filed a federal lawsuit alleging she received an “other than honorable” discharge from the U.S. Navy over a sexual harassment complaint she lodged against a superior.
The Day reports that the lawsuit filed on Monday by Katrina Bradley, of West Haven, alleges that a superior brought her to his barracks in 1995, gave her alcohol and touched her leg.
She filed a sexual harassment complaint. The suit says her supervisors retaliated.
She subsequently received non-judicial punishment and was charged with absence without leave and failing to follow orders or regulations, for being late and for falling asleep on duty.
She was administratively discharged.
The Board for Correction of Naval Records has denied Bradley’s request to upgrade her discharge.
The Navy wouldn’t comment on ongoing litigation.
