Former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) is suing one of the women who has accused him of sexual misconduct for defamation.
Moore filed a counterclaim against accuser Leigh Corfman after she initially sued the former candidate for defamation, AL.com reported Tuesday.
Moore's attorney made the filings in a Montgomery County court late Monday night. The documents describe Corfman's lawsuit as "frivolous and groundless" and "strongly" denies the allegations of sexual misconduct by Moore.
"This is and has been a political attempt to smear the good name and reputation of Judge Roy Moore, and we will not let this injustice continue," Moore's attorney, Melissa Isaak, said in a statement Tuesday.
Moore is also requesting that the case be moved out of Montgomery County to Etowah County. His legal defense fund claimed that the case was filed in Montgomery "for political reasons to hide the truth from the public about these false allegations," according to the Daily Beast.

What took so long? These skanks need to be taught a monetary lesson. Sue these bitches into bankruptcy.
Way too late.
The MSM will never cover it, the offenders have no $ so he can’t get monetary reward and Moore’s political future is too damaged for him to go anywhere.
Judge Moore is not just a public figure, he is also a political figure. In short, he cannot prevail even if she knew everything she said about him is a lie.
Discovery would be interesting
I totally agree with your assessment of the timing.
Difficult to prevail, but not impossible.
Hopefully his suit won’t be dismissed by some Clinton or Obama-appointed Judge.
He has witnesses who were regular customers and employees at that restaurant. She never worked there.
Whatever amount she loses will no doubt be covered by the DNC Dark Money fund but it will be nice to see her defeated in court if they can find an honest judge.
Bankrupt the Allreds.
But the Washington Post has deep pockets.
And add that whore up in Missouri who now admits she saw our newly elected Governor filming her, but only in a dream. DUH!!
This isn’t the woman who worked at the restaurant.
State court - not federal.
Exactly.. What took so long? Maybe the full impact is just now hitting him.
Thanks for the info.
This isn’t the woman who was associated with the Allreds.
Not just difficult; it's impossible for Judge Moore to prevail. I can provide the link to the U.S. Supreme Court case to prove it.
