Roy Moore Accuser Sues Him for Defamation

Roy Moore

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.

She says after coming forward during Moore's 2016 Senate campaign, Moore denied the allegation and "defamed" her.

Leigh Corfman says Moore sexually abused her when she was 14 - a high school freshman - and he was a 32-year-old prosecutor. Wearing only undershorts, Mr. Moore touched Ms. Corfman's private parts through her bra and underpants and guided her hand to touch his penis.

"These allegations are completely false and misleading", Moore said during an appearance on Sean Hannity's radio show shortly after the Post bombshell.

In a Washington Post article on November 9, Corfman and three other women accused Moore of pursuing them when they were in their teens and he was in his 30s.

Corfman is seeking financial compensation to cover her legal costs, a public apology from Moore, and a court-enforced ban on him or his campaign publicly attacking her, The Washington Post reported. "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". Just last week, after the election, they filed a lawsuit in which they once again called me a liar. Corfman said she later arranged to meet Moore and that he took her to his home and initiated the encounter.

Packers apparently extended Mike McCarthy during the season
However, it seems the one constant that will remain is head coach Mike McCarthy . Both have interviewed for several GM openings around the league in recent years.

Moore denied any wrongdoing and said he never met Corfman.

WAAY 31 has attempted to reach out to the Moore campaign, but the most recent contact number assigned to it is no longer in service. The suit also asks for "further relief as permitted by law and as the court deems appropriate".

"Ms. Corfman is a private citizen whose only motivation is to clear her name and to stop Mr. Moore and the Moore Campaign Committee from continuing their defamatory attacks on her", the lawsuit said.

The lawsuit cites numerous statements made by Moore and his campaign staff and surrogates denying the allegations and accusing her of not telling the truth.
