5th Circuit Judicial Council Faces Pressure to Take Further Action in Sex Harassment Complaint

When I heard the outcome of my complaint to the 5th Circuit Judicial Council, I was shocked that Judge Kent's conduct was not viewed more seriously, and that he would be allowed to continue to sit in judgment of others. ”

The woman who alleges that U.S. District Judge Samuel B. Kent of Galveston, Texas, sexually harassed her wants the 5th Circuit Judicial Council to take further action.

In May, Cathy McBroom -- a former case manager for Kent -- filed a complaint with the 5th Circuit Judicial Council alleging "sexual harassment."
