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

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".

Undoubtedly, she's opening herself up to a whole new round of attacks by those who side with Moore - those, like the governor of Alabama, Kay Ivey, who shockingly said at one point during the fiery campaign season that she believed Corfman and her fellow accusers, but that she would vote for him nonetheless because he's a Republican. Corfman said she later arranged to meet Moore and that he took her to his home and initiated the encounter. Doug Jones' victory marked the first time in 25 years that a Democrat in Alabama won a U.S. Senate race.

The lawsuit outlines 11 instances in which Moore publicly denied Corfman's allegations or denied knowing her altogether.

He denied that he even knew Corfman. In a church speech, he dismissed the misconduct allegations against him as 'dirty politics.' Moore, who filed an unsuccessful lawsuit seeking to stop the certification of the Alabama election, submitted an affidavit saying the accusations were false and malicious and that he passed a polygraph test.

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.

Jaffe reportedly represented Moore's son in a 2016 case. The suit "represents a fledgling legal strategy where people who say they were victimized long ago are litigating their claims through defamation lawsuits", the paper notes. Women accusing President Donald Trump and comedian Bill Cosby of sexual misconduct have also pursued defamation cases.

Under a landmark Supreme Court ruling, the legal standard for defamation of a public figure is that the statements were known to be false or showed a "reckless disregard for the truth", experts say.

'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.

Corfman's lawsuit cites numerous negative comments made by Moore and five top campaign allies, including campaign manager Rich Hobson, who announced Wednesday that he is running for Congress.
