CHARLESTON, WV (AP) -

A Kanawha County judge has denied former Mingo County Circuit Court Judge Michael Thornsbury's petition to dismiss a lawsuit filed against him by his former secretary.

Media outlets report that Circuit Court Judge Tod Kaufman ruled Tuesday that Thornsbury received proper notice of Kim Woodruff's lawsuit.

Woodruff's lawsuit alleges that Thornsbury sexually harassed her and wrongly fired her.

In October, Thornsbury pleaded guilty to federal charges of conspiring to deprive a convicted drug dealer of his constitutional rights. Thornsbury resigned from the bench and will be sentenced in January.
