Roy Moore accuser Leigh Corfman files lawsuit against him for defamation

Kayla Moore's

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.

Moore's comments about Corfman were defamatory, she claims in the suit, filed today in Montgomery County, Ala., the Post reports.

The lawsuit focuses on how Moore and his campaign responded to her claims and the national reaction.

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". The lawsuit was filed a day after Jones was sworn in as a member of the Senate. But the accusations by Corfman and other women, along with Moore's extremist record, help derail his Senate ambitions.

The lawsuit spells out a number of instances where Moore or his campaign surrogates denied her claims and attacked her character and motives.

Receiver Adam Thielen can increase his 2018 salary escalator by another $250,000 with five catches to reach 90 for the season. TE Kyle Rudolph, bothered by an ankle injury the past three weeks, wore a walking boot in the locker room after the game.

"Instead, the lawsuit said, "Moore continued his attacks, accusing Ms. Corfman of lying and having improper purposes". In addition, Corfman's mother recalls being approached outside the courthouse and she also learned about her daughter's "dates" with Moore decades before this election. "Ms. Corfman wishes that defendants had heeded her requests to cease their defamation of her and seeks judicial intervention as a last resort to hold Defendants accountable for their misconduct, including a declaration that defendants" denials of Mr. Moore's sexual abuse of her and their characterization of her account of this abuse as "false, ' 'malicious, ' and 'immoral, ' among other untrue statements, are defamatory, as well as injunctive relief against these statements".

"All these statements by Mr. Moore are defamatory", the lawsuit said.

Corfman has also accused five campaign representatives of repeating what she calls "false denials" of Moore sexually abusing her. Corfman seeks no financial compensation besides her legal expenses, her attorney, Neil Roman, told the paper.

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.
