Lawyer for Golan Cipel says he will not file lawsuit against Governor McGreevey
A lawyer for Golan Cipel, the former aide who claims New Jersey Governor James McGreevey sexually harassed him, announced Monday that he will not file a lawsuit against the governor.
Cipel's attorney says the governor's resignation announcement was sufficient admission of his wrongdoing and Cipel's allegations were never about money. His attorney also claims that McGreevey's repeated harassment of Cipel began shortly after the 2001 election and lasted until the summer of 2002.
After McGreevey announced that he was gay and would resign from office, administration sources identified Cipel as the other man in the governor's extramarital affair. Cipel, who was briefly the governor's homeland security advisor, denied that he was gay or that he had an affair with McGreevey.
