Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax remains on leave from his law firm a month after one woman accused him of assault and another accused him of rape.
Fairfax is a partner at the law firm Morrison Foerster in Northern Virginia. The firm is investigating the charges against the LG. From WVTF.org,
The head of the firm told the National Law Journal in February that they’ve hired outside counsel to investigate Fairfax. A spokeswoman for the Lieutenant Governor confirms that investigation is still ongoing and that Fairfax is on leave.
Vanessa Tyson has accused Fairfax of assaulting her at the Democrat convention in Boston in 2004. The prosecutor in Boston won’t say if the assault is under investigation. And Republicans in the House of Delegates are not saying if they will hold hearings on the two assault charges.
