North Dakota House bill would penalize false harassment claims 

(Fargo, ND)  --  A bill introduced in the North Dakota House would make it a crime to level false claims of discrimination or sexual harassment.  House Bill 1256 says a person making allegations later found to be frivolous and false would be guilty of a Class C felony. Anyone encouraging a false allegation claim would be guilty of a misdemeanor.  The bill was introduced by Grand Forks Republican Representative Eric Murphy.
