UPDATE: Roy Moore’s Lawyers Hit Back, File Motion to Dismiss Absurd Defamation Claim

Judge Moore continues his legal battle.

Published

on

Judge Roy S. Moore’s attorneys are going on the offensive, this time fighting an absurd claim of defamation made by Leigh Corfman, the woman who accused him of sexual misconduct during his 2017 run for U.S. Senate.

After denying Corfman’s sexual misconduct claims against him, saying that they were untrue, Corfman’s legal team had the gall to file a defamation suit against Moore for the denial. Now, Moore’s team says that the suit must be tossed for failure to state an actionable claim.

“If Corfman is correct that the mere denial of defamatory accusations is itself defamation, then accusers of any stripe may with confidence hurl accusations of wrongdoing against helpless targets who will be cowed into silence at the prospect of having to defend a lawsuit for merely saying it didn’t happen,” the motion said.

Moore’s lawyers are arguing that denial of an allegation does not, on its face, equal defamation.

“Each statement attributed to Judge Moore in Leigh Corfman’s complaint expresses a single uniform message: Judge Moore is innocent of having engaged in sexual misconduct with Corfman. Unlike what she has alleged against him, Judge Moore has laid no accusation of wrongdoing against Corfman,” the motion continued. “He has merely denied the truth of her accusations and sought to defend his reputation against her attacks on his character. For simply defending his good name against Corfman’s accusations, Judge Moore is now the defendant in a defamation action.”

Johnny Davis, a Constitutional attorney from Alabama told Big League Politics that it is obvious that Corfman failed to state an actionable claim in her defamation suit against Moore.

“Under Common Law and the law of Alabama, you have the basic right to deny any public allegation against you and you are privileged against any claim of slander,” he said.

“Corfman also sued the various members of Moore’s campaign who defended him and pointed out the various problems with the accusations,” Davis continued. “They did not call her ugly names or seek to destroy her reputation they were exercising their basic first amendment right to debate a public topic.”

Davis called the allegation of defamation “flat frivolous.”

This motion to dismiss is part of a much larger legal action by Moore. He is suing all of his accusers, primarily Corfman who he says falsely accused him of sexual misconduct from when she was a teenager, and also a Democratic PAC who ran wild with accusations that he had been banned from a mall for predatory behavior. Big League Politics exclusively reported that Moore also plans to sue The New Yorkerwho published the latter claim.

‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe

The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.

Published

on

The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.

Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.

There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.

Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.

MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
