Last year’s special election to find a replacement for Alabama’s Junior Senator was rocked when Judge Roy Moore, who was poised to win the seat, was hounded by rumors of sexual assault from three women. Those claims were so damaging to his reputation that Doug Jones, an unknown Democrat candidate, was able to beat Moore on election night.
While the media played up the accusations against Moore being from nine or more people, Judge Moore’s legal counsel made it clear at a press conference that there were three women accusers, and any inflated numbers were false.
Melissa Isaac, who is representing Judge Moore and his family, stated that they are suing all three accusers, along with two people connected to the accusations made against Moore. The five people being sued are Richard Hagadorn, Marjorie Leigh Corfman, Debbie Wesson Gibson, Beverly Young Nelson, Tina Turner Johnson.
The complaint against the three accusers, and two accomplices, is being filed in Etowah County, where the allegations against Moore took place, and where the five being sued all live. The complaint against them is for political conspiracy, among other charges.
