An administrative Law Judge can proceed with his claim that the New York City Sheriff sexually harassed him in 1995 while they were both staff attorneys at a state agency, a federal judge has ruled.

Southern District Judge Michael B. Mukasey found that Teresa Mason, the city sheriff, may have subjected Ronald A. Gregg, an ALJ with the Division of Human Rights, to unwelcome sexual conduct when she supervised him at the New York Department of Taxation and Finance (DTF).
