GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A federal court trial is scheduled to begin a week from Tuesday for the first woman who accused former prosecutor Ken Kratz of sexually harassing her.

Stephanie Van Groll is seeking unspecified damages from the former Calumet County district attorney, who filed for bankruptcy last April.

She said Kratz violated her civil rights, by sending racy text messages and trying to start up an affair in 2009 while he was prosecuting her boyfriend for abusing her.

The word didn’t get out about that until 2010. And when it did, several other women said Kratz made sexually-suggestive remarks to them.

A couple months later, Kratz resigned after former Governor Jim Doyle started proceedings to remove him. Later, Kratz ran a private law practice in the Fox Valley for a while – and he has since moved to Florida.

Last year, the state’s Office of Lawyer Regulation asked the Supreme Court to suspend Kratz’s law license for six months. The justices have not made a decision.
