ATLANTA (AP) -- Three former employees of an ex-judge in Georgia are accusing him of sexual harassment and another woman who had a case before him says he propositioned her and orchestrated a scheme to have her arrested on bogus drug charges.
Former Murray County magistrate judge Bryant Cochran resigned in August amid a state investigation into his conduct. But his legal troubles are far from over.
The former employees sued him and the county earlier this month and the fourth woman filed her own lawsuit. All of the women are seeking unspecified damages.
Lawyers for Cochran and the women have confirmed an ongoing grand jury investigation into his behavior.
Cochran's lawyers deny any sexual misconduct and say he wasn't involved in the drug setup.
