A second female employee has filed a lawsuit accusing Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard of sexual harassment, claiming she was marginalized and threatened with termination after she did not succumb to his advances.

Tisa Grimes, the DA’s former human resources director, claimed Howard made multiple off-color remarks, repeated solicitations for sex and eventually groped her shortly after she was hired in 2018, according to the suit, filed Tuesday in federal court in Atlanta. The suit contends that Grimes repeatedly rejected Howard’s advances and avoided being alone with him whenever possible.
