WaPo: Roy Moore's '70s Teen Accuser Sues for Defamation

WaPo: Roy Moore's '70s Teen Accuser Sues for Defamation

Thursday, 04 January 2018 05:38 PM EST

An Alabama woman is suing failed GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore and his campaign for defamation, citing their verbal attacks after she came forward to allege Moore touched her sexually when she was 14, The Washington Post reported.

Leigh Corfman is not seeking financial compensation beyond legal costs, but asks for 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 reported.

She said in a statement the suit seeks "to do what I could not do as a 14-year-old — hold Mr. Moore and those who enable him accountable," the Post reported.

Corfman was one of several women to accuse Moore of sexual misconduct during the campaign. Moore and his campaign at various times called the women liars, and Moore said he did not know the women and denied wrongdoing.

Moore lost to Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., in a Dec. 12, 2017 special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions' old seat.
