A disciplinary case against Attorney General Curtis Hill will move forward as the state Supreme Court appointed a hearing officer Monday.

The complaint against Hill comes out of accusations last year that he inappropriately touched four women – including a state lawmaker – at a post-legislative session party.

Hill’s attorney had argued the Disciplinary Commission’s complaint was unfounded and threatened to breach the separation of powers. He urged the Supreme Court not to appoint a hearing officer in the case.

But the Court rejected that request by appointing Myra Selby to hear the complaint. Selby, now an attorney in private practice, was the first African American and first woman to sit on the state Supreme Court.
