Woman who accused Roy Moore of unwanted sexual contact sues him for defamation
05 January, 2018, 15:13
Corfman's lawsuit also raised the issue of a November 28 open letter from her to Moore provided to AL.com that "asked him to stop denying his sexual abuse of her in 1979, to acknowledge his misconduct, and to apologize". 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. Corfman said she later arranged to meet Moore and that he took her to his home and initiated the encounter. Moore has denied the allegations. Thursday, Leigh Corfman cites harsh personal attacks against her after she accused Moore of touching her sexually when she was a teen and he was in his 30s, The Washington Post reported.
Corfman accuses Moore of attacking her despite knowledge that he sexually abused her as a 14-year-old.
Corfman's suit - filed in Montgomery County, Alabama, one day after Jones took the oath of office - represents a fledgling legal strategy where people who say they were victimized long ago are litigating their claims through defamation lawsuits.
Efforts to immediately reach Moore for comment were unsuccessful, and a text message to Kayla Moore, Moore's wife, was not immediately returned.

Anyhow, many of Moore's more vocal backers predicted Corfman and her fellow accusers would disappear from the public platform once the election ended - and they said this by way of showing how little steam their accusations had, and how politically motivated their whole sexual allegations were.
Moore lost to Doug Jones in a special election held to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions's open seat. During the 2016 campaign, Trump called the claims by multiple women that he had touched them improperly "big lies", and he called the women "liars". Mr. Moore knew or should have known that Ms. Corfman's account is truthful because he was the perpetrator in the events she described.
'Mr. Moore's continued attacks against Ms. Corfman after the election and the content of his affidavit demonstrate that if not enjoined, he will continue to defame Ms. Corfman, if simply for the objective of furthering his political goals, ' Corfman's attorney wrote in the lawsuit. It asks for him to pay legal fees, but does not ask for any monetary compensation.
