Madison County to pay $42,500 to settle Sheriff Bob Hertz sexual harassment lawsuit

Madison County agreed to pay $42,500 to settle a lawsuit that accused former Sheriff Bob Hertz of sexual harassment.

Hertz’s former secretary, Jamie Linton, filed the lawsuit in November 2013 after she was allegedly subjected to a hostile work environment.

Linton claims that Hertz made inappropriate sexual gestures and romantic overtures toward her.

When Linton rejected Hertz’s alleged overtures, Hertz allegedly repeatedly retaliated against Linton by threatening to fire her and treating her in a hostile manner.
