Roy Moore accuser files defamation lawsuit against him

Woman who accused Roy Moore of unwanted sexual contact sues him for defamation

Leigh Corfman, the first woman to accuse failed U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct, is suing him for defamation. The lawsuit, filed in Montgomery, asks Moore to publicly apologize.

The suit alleges that Moore made defamatory remarks and personally attacked Corfman after she alleged that he touched her sexually in 1979, when she was 14 and he was 32.

Brett Doster, a spokesman for Moore, responded to the suit by telling the Post, "We look forward to transparently discussing these matters in a court of law".

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. Moore, the Republican candidate, lost to Democrat Doug Jones in a December special election. 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. "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". Moore on several occasions denied knowing Corfman.

Man accused of sexually assaulting sleeping woman on Spirit Airlines flight
While the onboard crew was talking to the woman, Ramamoorthy's wife came to the back to see what was going on, Jawad said. His wife told officials a similar version and said that they had called the flight attendants to try to change seats.

The lawsuit suggests that Moore's polygraph affidavit - basically a sworn statement - could be perjury. In a church speech, he dismissed the misconduct allegations against him as "dirty politics". "Mr. Moore has claimed, among other assertions, that Ms. Corfman's account is 'completely false, ' 'malicious, ' 'politically motivated, ' that it reflects 'the immorality of our time, ' and that 'there is not one ounce of truth in her accusations'".

But the lawsuit says Moore's claim doesn't spell out what he was asked, where the test occurred or include an affidavit from the person who gave the test.

"Instead, the lawsuit said, "Moore continued his attacks, accusing Ms. Corfman of lying and having improper purposes". Corfman seeks no financial compensation besides her legal expenses, her attorney, Neil Roman, told the paper.
