The Floyd County Attorney is being sued for allegedly having sex with a client. A lawsuit has been filed by a woman who claims that Floyd County Attorney Jesse Marzen had a sexual relationship with the woman between January and February 2006 while she was his client at a private law firm and before he took public office.
The woman claims Marzen was representing her in three legal matters during that time and his actions constitute a breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty. The woman is seeking payment for past and future medical and counseling services, lost wages, and past and future pain and suffering.
When contacted, Marzen said he hadn’t heard of the lawsuit and wouldn’t comment any further until he reviewed the allegations. Marzen was elected as Floyd County Attorney in November of 2006.
