Woman who accused Roy Moore of sexual misconduct sues him for defamation
05 January, 2018, 15:15 | Author: Mable Gonzales
Corfman said she was a teen when Moore, then a 32-year-old assistant district attorney, touched her sexually during an encounter.
Leigh Corfman, who accused former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct, is suing him for defamation. "By this lawsuit, I seek to do what I could not do as a 14-year-old-hold Mr. Moore and those who enable him accountable". "Mr. Moore sexually abused me when I was only 14 years old". Several publications, including the Jewish publication Forward and the Washington Examiner, have claimed that the attorney she was referring to was Richard Jaffe, a Jewish attorney who represented Roy and Kayla's son, Caleb Moore, in a case several years ago. "I believe they're politically motivated, to stop a successful campaign". She instead seeks " a declaratory judgment of defamation, a public apology from Moore, and a court-enforced ban on him or his campaign publicly attacking her again", the Post reports. In a church speech, he dismissed the misconduct allegations against him as 'dirty politics.' Moore, who filed an unsuccessful lawsuit seeking to stop the certification of the Alabama election, submitted an affidavit saying the accusations were false and malicious and that he passed a polygraph test.
A phone message left by AL.com at the office of Moore attorney Trent Garmon was not immediately returned Thursday.
The lawsuit said that as a result of the statements made by Moore and his campaign, Corfman took a temporary leave of absence from her job without compensation. "But they need to be held responsible for their actions". She argues Moore and his campaign defamed her and made false statements as they denied various sexual misconduct accusations in the midst of the U.S. Senate race.
