GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An attorney confirmed on Thursday that Greenville County and the county administrator were dismissed for a lawsuit accusing suspended Sheriff Will Lewis of sexual assault and harassment.

In October 2016, Savanah Nabors, a former sheriff's office employee, filed a lawsuit alleging she woke up to Lewis having sex with her after she lost consciousness. Nabors believes liquor she consumed contained "some kind of drug," according to the lawsuit.

Attorney Kyle White said the decision to dismiss Greenville County and county administrator Joseph Kernell was made after completing a significant amount of discovery.

In December 2017, a motion was filed to dismiss the county and Kernell from the lawsuit.

According to the dismissal stipulation, the decision has no effect on the claims against Lewis and the Greenville County Sheriff's Office.
