In a huge break in Judge Roy Moore’s defamation suit against Leigh Corfman, the woman who accused him of sexual misconduct during his 2017 U.S. Senate bid, Moore’s legal team has filed a motion compelling Corfman to give a sworn deposition of the events in question.
So far, Corfman has refused to appear for depositions in which she would be asked, under oath, specific questions about Moore’s alleged misconduct. She has claimed to The Washington Post, but never in a sworn affidavit, that the Judge made unwanted sexual advances towards her when she was a teenager. The central question in the case is where the alleged event took place – whether in a trailer, or in a home.
“Her refusal to comply with discover has prejudiced Judge Moore and it is apparent that absent court investigation, Leigh Corfman will continue to violate the Alabama Rules of Civil Procedure, conceal evidence and deny Judge Moore the documents and responses he is due under the law,” the court documents said.
Another document describes the conundrum that Corfman has before her, whether the event took place inside a trailer or a physical home. She has not been able to confirm this detail.
Attorneys for each side are fighting over which side must be deposed first, and on which issues. Obviously, the Moore team does not want to answer deposition questions that would help Corfman “fill in the blanks” in her story – like what type of residence she was in when the Judge allegedly violated her. Even still, the Judge has been deposed, despite Corfman not answering his discovery.
The last document claims that Corfman would not “sit for her deposition because Judge Moor would not testify to ‘the appearance of his vehicle, his residence and his driveway in 1979, – the exact same question that Corfman refused to answer.”
From these documents, it appears that Corfman is trying to hold out, hoping that the Judge will be forced to answer further questions about the details of the residence before she is deposed. That raises suspicion. Why not just tell the court what she remembers? The answer, of course, is that she is afraid that her story will not match verifiable facts provided by the Judge, and that she will be exposed.
Johnny Davis, a former Alabama criminal defense attorney who currently runs an international and Constitutional law consulting firm told Big League Politics in a prior interview that Corfman’s story “cannot withstand cross examination” due to numerous flaws and irregularities. We reported:
“What we have to believe [in order] to believe Corfman’s story is that essentially Roy Moore grew up behaving himself, went to West Point and showed exemplary character there, served in Vietnam, went to law school, started practicing, in his early 30’s was a sexual predator for a while, and then was never a sexual predator again,” Davis told Big League Politics in an earlier phone interview.
“That’s not how it works,” he continued. “You don’t have an isolated year, 40 years ago of sexually predatory behavior. The pathology does not work that way.”
Davis also noted Corfman’s claim that the pair had a relationship of a sexual nature, but never had intercourse. The statute of limitations has run on any potential crimes with which Corfman could press charges against Moore. If she had claimed that the pair had had intercourse, he said, the statute of limitations would not have run. She would still be able to press charges against him to this day, and would have to face questions as to why she has not done so.
Davis told BLP Tuesday evening that he expects a hearing on Moore’s lawyers’ motion either later this month or in February.

SOLITARY: Michael Avenatti Transferred To El Chapo’s Former Cell In New York Jail
Federal prosecutors aren’t inclined to give Avenatti a break.
New legal documents published Monday night reveal that showboat attorney and former cable news star Michael Avenatti has been transferred from a California jail to an infamous New York jail after violating the terms of his pre-trial agreement.
Avenatti was arrested at a hearing of the California Bar Association last weekend.
New documents published by his attorney surfaced Monday, revealing that Avenatti was transferred from California to New York over the weekend and jailed at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Avenatti is currently facing criminal charges related to an alleged extortion of Nike, in which the showboat attorney is said to have threatened the sporting company with legal and press campaign against it if it failed to provide him with millions of dollars.
The documents assert that he has been housed in a cell formerly occupied by Mexican Cartel boss El Chapo, an infamous global criminal who has since been transferred to a federal prison in Colorado known as the most secure in the country.
In another strange twist, the Metropolitan Correctional Center was the location of infamous billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s detention and controversial “suicide.”
Avenatti’s lawyers are asking for him to be removed from protective custody and placed in general population in order to effectively litigate his ongoing court case.
With the once-hyped potential presidential candidate literally being housed in El Chapo’s former jail cell, it’s hard to think of a more dramatic character arc for the celebrity lawyer. Around a year ago, Avenatti was still exploring the possibility of a campaign for the Democratic nomination.
As he fights against criminal charges that could carry a penalty of a life sentence in prison, it appears unlikely that Avenatti will be getting anywhere with any political ambitions anytime soon.
