The leader of the Indiana National Guard has retired at the request of Governor Eric Holcomb.
The governor’s office released a statement Monday saying Major General Courtney Carr’s immediate resignation was accepted by Holcomb. Carr held the post since 2015.
It did not mention that a former contract worker has filed a lawsuit claiming she was retaliated against by Carr after she reported concerns about his affair with a subordinate. Shari McLaughlin filed the lawsuit this month in Marion County Superior Court against Carr.
McLaughlin began working as a contractor in 2017 and was assigned a mentor who allegedly began a relationship with Carr. McLaughlin alleges once she came forward with concerns, she was retaliated against with false accusations and intimidation, among other things. The lawsuit alleges she resigned in 2018 because her work environment “had become too unsafe and toxic.”
Indiana National Guard spokeswoman Beth Houx declined comment on the pending litigation.
No attorney is listed for Carr in court records.
