Leigh Corfman slaps Roy Moore with defamation suit

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

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". "Mr. Moore sexually abused me when I was only 14 years old".

Jaffe, in an interview with AL.com, had said he wasn't sure he was the attorney she was referring to, and that he had never handled cases for Roy Moore, only his son. Moore has denied the allegations.

"The decision to sue Mr. Moore and his campaign committee was hard, but they need to be held responsible for their actions", Corfman said in a written statement to AL.com. 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's lawsuit does not seek financial compensation beyond her own legal costs, but instead asks for "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.

Corfman and her mother have said that Moore first approached her as she waited outside a custody hearing at the Etowah County courthouse. He denied ever having known her and said he took a polygraph test to back up that statement.

A phone message left by AL.com at the office of Moore attorney Trent Garmon was not immediately returned Thursday. 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.

Roy Moore, a Republican, lost to Democrat Doug Jones in last year's special Senate election in Alabama.

A Roy Moore campaign spokesman released the following statement about the lawsuit: "We look forward to transparently discussing these matters in a court of law". 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". Let's see what new reasons pop to paint Corfman the perpetrator, Moore a victim and the whole recent Senate controversies in Alabama nothing but complete and utter figments of media imaginations.

The wife of former U.S. Senate Republican nominee Roy Moore has revealed the identity of the Moores' "Jewish attorney" she mentioned in a December 11 speech.
