A Crawford County woman has sued a former UI Hospitals and Clinics doctor, alleging that he sexually assaulted her in his office.

Pauline Longoria sued Samir Haddad, claiming negligence and assault. She also sued the state of Iowa, claiming negligence.

According to Longoria’s lawsuit, which was filed on Jan. 4 in 6th District Court, Haddad was a treating physician for her mother when he called her into his office in the Pappajohn Pavilion on May 10, 2007.

Haddad admitted to having sexual contact with Longoria, but he claimed it was consensual, the lawsuit said. Longoria denies consenting.

The suit claims the state was negligent for employing Haddad.

Longoria alleged she experienced physical and emotional pain and suffering, incurred medical bills, and has a loss of ability to enjoy life.
