NASHVILLE (WSMV) - A longtime Metro elected official wants to keep the public from knowing the details of a million-dollar sex suit filed against him.

Former Circuit Court Clerk employee claims Richard Rooker forced sex on her

News4 told you last month about the allegations. A woman who used to work for Circuit Court Clerk Richard Rooker claims they had sex in the courthouse once a week for twelve years.

She says she did it because of the hostile work environment.

Rooker filed papers last week asking the judge to file a protective order so one one can read what comes out during the discovery process.
