SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A woman has filed a federal lawsuit against Salt Lake County, claiming she was sexually harassed by a former chief deputy with whom she previously had a relationship.

The lawsuit says the county did nothing about her claims of harassment by former Salt Lake County Chief Deputy Clerk Nick Floros, who has since retired.

The lawsuit filed yesterday in U-S District Court also claims she was punished when she rejected his advances.

The Salt Lake County District Attorney's office investigated the woman's allegations, but found there was no criminal wrongdoing.

Instead, it was categorized as a likely violation of county policy. But any punishment along those lines was a now a moot point since Floros has retired.
