FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill said he has no plans to resign, despite top state Republicans' calls.

Hill was in Fort Wayne Friday for the launch of a Ten-Point Coalition chapter in the city. 

At the event, he was asked about the pending litigation from four women who previously accused him of sexual misconduct. 

"What other people do about it is their business," Hill said. "I'm the attorney general, and I'm going about my business. I was placed in office by a fair number of people who support me and believe in me and the things that we're doing, and we're going to keep doing them."   

All four women, State Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon (D-Munster), Gabrielle Mclemore, communications director for State Senate Democrats, Niki DaSilva, legislative assistant for Senate Republicans, and Samanta Lozano, legislative assistant for House Democrats, say they want changes in the Indiana Statehouse and beyond.

A new sexual harassment policy is supposed to be released before Nov. 20.

On Oct. 23, a special prosecutor announced that no charges would be filed against Hill.
