JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Tuesday the Jackson City Council plans to choose an attorney to represent them on a sexual harassment lawsuit.

Councilman Tyrone Hendrix says the city council was formally served with the federal lawsuit on Thursday. They must respond to the lawsuit in a timely manner.

Former city employee Kimberly Bracey filed suit in August against Mayor Tony Yarber and the City of Jackson, accusing Mayor Yarber of firing her after she refused to continue a sexual relationship.

Mayor Yarber denies the allegations.
