Attorney Joel Bennett Reads a Statement from his client

via BBC News

A woman who made a sexual harassment complaint against Herman Cain in the 1990s will not discuss the issue or her financial settlement, her lawyer says.

Joel Bennett said that his client “sees no value in revisiting the case”.

Mr Bennett said that his client stood by her sexual harassment claim against Mr Cain, now bidding to be the Republican presidential nominee.

The National Restaurant Association, which Mr Cain headed in the 1990s, confirmed that a claim had been filed.

The association said in a statement that it had agreed to waive the confidentially agreement made as part of the settlement.

The woman filed a formal internal complaint alleging multiple instances of sexual harassment in July 1999.
