Roy Moore's Wife: I Was Talking About A Different Jewish Lawyer

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

Leigh Corfman, one of the women who accused failed U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct, is suing Moore and his campaign for defamation due to the sharp personal attacks she encountered after coming forward with her allegations.

"Despite Defendant's defamatory statements to the contrary, Ms. Corfman has not received any compensation from the Washington Post or from any other source for disclosing Mr. Moore's sexual abuse of her when she was 14 years old", the suit reads.

In a statement to AL.com, she said she is suing because Moore and his campaign called her a "liar and immoral", and ignored her requests to cease his attacks.

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.

Moore claimed Corfman's allegations were "politically motivated", "completely false", and "malicious".




"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.

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

Mr. Moore later in the same interview denied knowing Ms. Corfman, and accused her of political motivations in speaking with The Washington Post: "I don't know Ms. Corfman from a-anybody". "Mr. Moore sexually abused me when I was only 14 years old".

The allegations led to an upset in the Alabama special election and the first victory of a Senate Democrat in the state in more than two decades. It also asks that Moore be forced to pay the legal costs of the suit and "provide further relief as permitted by law and as the Court deems appropriate".

Corfman's suit joins other high-profile defamation suits that seek to hold perpetrators accountable long after the statute of limitation has passed for criminal prosecution or a straightforward civil suit. Women accusing President Donald Trump and comedian Bill Cosby of sexual misconduct have also pursued defamation cases.
