The most recent lawsuit was filed Wednesday by former State Police officer Jessica Turner, who is engaged to a plaintiff in the first lawsuit.

According to our partners at the Santa Fe New Mexican, Turner is accusing Kassetas of violating the Human Rights Act, the Whistleblower Protection Act and the Fraud Against Taxpayers Act. The exact allegations are not clear as the lawsuit was filed under seal.

Turner resigned back in April after an investigation into whether she received special treatment from Otero County Sheriff's deputies after being pulled over on suspicion of DWI.

Back in June, KOB reported on the first lawsuit that accused Chief Kassetas of discrimination based on gender and sexual orientation. A spokesman for Gov. Susana Martinez had said that the allegations were "completely removed from the truth."
