Cromwell police officer files sex discrimination lawsuit against town

The town’s lawyer, Dennis Durao of the Rocky Hill law firm Karsten & Tallberg, has asked a judge to order Young’s lawyer to remove from the lawsuit language about the relationship as it is “immaterial” to Young’s claim and because courts have “repeatedly observed that there is a distinction between personal animosity arising from a failed relationship, which is not actionable sexual harassment, and animosity based on a person’s gender, which can be.” Durao declined to comment Thursday.
