SPA Ph.D. student Alan Kennedy-Shaffer, who is also an attorney, is quoted in the Associated Press story “Colorado Lawmakers to Review Policy on Sexual Harassment” that was posted Nov. 21, 2017. Kennedy-Shaffer represents Thomas Cavaness, who filed a formal complaint against Democratic Representative Paul Rosenthal of Denver.
“Cavaness’ attorney, Alan Kennedy-Shaffer, said Tuesday that he had requested information about any other complaints involving Rosenthal to support his client’s case but that [Democratic House Speaker Crisanta] Duran had denied the request, citing the workplace policy’s confidentiality provisions. Those provisions, Kennedy-Shaffer said, highlight “how woefully inadequate the legislature’s sexual harassment policy is, allowing multiple complaints to pile up against legislators without the victims or the public knowing.”
