Roy Moore accuser sues him, campaign for defamation
Jan 05, 2018, 12:15
One of the women who accused Roy Moore of sexual misconduct, including sexually touching her when she was 14 and he was 32, is suing the former Alabama senatorial candidate and his campaign for defamation.
Leigh Corfman has filed the lawsuit in Montgomery County district court Thursday against Moore and the campaign, asking for a retraction along with compensatory damages.
Roy Moore accuser Leigh Corfman spoke to the "Today" show November 20, following allegations she made in The Washington Post that U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore seduced and molested her when she was 14.
She issued a statement saying the suit allows her "to do what I could not do as a 14-year-old - hold Mr. Moore and those who enable him accountable", according to the Post.
Corfman is seeking a public apology from Moore, to prevent him from continuing to publicly defame her, and a judgment that states Moore has committed defamation against her.
The lawsuit spells out a number of instances where Moore or his campaign surrogates denied her claims and attacked her character and motives.
The lawsuit asks Moore to publicly apologize. "I believe they're politically motivated, to stop a successful campaign".
On the second visit to the house, Mr. Moore sexually abused Ms. Corfman. It also asks that Moore be forced to pay the legal costs of the suit and "provide further relief as permitted by law and as the Court deems appropriate".
The decision to sue Mr. Moore and his campaign committee was hard, but they need to be held responsible for their actions. Mr. Moore knew or should have known that Ms. Corfman's account is truthful because he was the perpetrator in the events she described. Just after the allegations emerged, Moore told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he had never met Corfman.
Those five individuals associated with the campaign: Manager Rich Hobson, Chairman Bill Armistead, attorney Benjamin Dupre, spokeswoman Janet Porter and strategist Dean Young.
