MONTGOMERY COUNTY — Leigh Corfman, one of multiple women that has alleged sexual misconduct by Roy Moore, has filed a lawsuit against him and his campaign in Montgomery County Circuit Court on Thursday, according to court documents.
According to the lawsuit, Corfman alleges that Roy Moore has defamed her “repeatedly and in all forms of media, calling her a liar and questioning her motivation for publicly disclosing that Mr. Moore sexually abused her in 1979 when she was a 14-year-old high school freshman and he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney.”
Corfman is seeking a public apology from Moore, to prevent him from continuing to publicly defame her, and a judgment that states Moore has committed defamation against her. She is also seeking to have the defendants pay the legal costs associated with the case.
According to the lawsuit Corfman’s “only motivation is to clear her name and to stop Mr. Moore and the Moore Campaign Committee from continuing their defamatory attacks on her. 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. Mr. Moore and the Moore Campaign Committee will likely continue their defamation of Ms. Corfman unless this Court orders them to stop.”
