Roy Moore accuser Leigh Corfman sues Moore for defamation

She isn't looking for money related harms past legitimate expenses, however rather is requesting an open expression of remorse from Moore and a restriction on him or his battle freely assaulting her later on, The Washington Post announced.

The lawsuit also pointed to the legal filing by Moore and his campaign on December 27, 2017 that was an effort to stop the election results from being certified by the state of Alabama.

She instead seeks " 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.

There has not been any comment yet from Mr. Moore.

She issued a statement saying the suit allows her "to do what I could not do as a 14-year-old - hold Mr. Moore and those who enable him accountable", according to the Post.

Jones is the first Democrat to hold the seat in 25 years. In that document, Corfman's allegations were described as "false and malicious".


Kayla Moore used the announcement as an attempt to deny claims that her husband was anti-Semitic.

Corfman's suit asks the court to force Moore to " retract all defamatory statements made against Ms. Corfman, to publicly apologize for these defamatory statements, and to refrain from making further defamatory statements". She is also seeking to have the defendants pay the legal costs associated with the case. The daily paper likewise talked with two other ladies who said Moore made advances toward them when they were young people and he was in his 30s.

The Washington Post on November 9 reported Corfman was approached by Moore when she was 14 years old outside a courtroom, befriending her and her mother.

The decision to sue Mr. Moore and his campaign committee was hard, but they need to be held responsible for their actions.

The lawsuit suggests that Moore's polygraph affidavit - basically a sworn statement - could be perjury. Mr. Moore knew or should have known that Ms. Corfman's account is truthful because he was the perpetrator in the events she described.
