A female New York State Trooper who accused ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexually harassing her on Long Island filed a federal lawsuit Thursday claiming he retaliated against her for making the allegations.

The plaintiff, identified only as Trooper 1, filed suit in Brooklyn federal court alleging Cuomo groped her and repeatedly made inappropriate sexual comments that made her feel uncomfortable. The trooper said he subjected her to unwanted touching at Belmont Racetrack in Elmont and made comments to her at Republic Airport in Farmingdale and Francis S. Gabreski Airport in Westhampton Beach, among other places.
