A state commission has set the stage for a public hearing into allegations of sexual harassment by a district judge.

An attorney for Judge Frederick Stewart says the allegations are false.

In a notice filed with the commission, an examiner says the alleged conduct occurred between 1999 and 2007 against an administrative assistant.

The notice says Stewart has 20 days to respond. A hearing date will be set after that.

The 14-member commission had seven members who considered the allegations in private and filed the notice. The other seven members will consider the case during a public hearing.

The commission would make recommendations to the Kansas Supreme Court, which will have the final word on the matter.
