Flanked by his wife at the Etowah County Courthouse, where he once presided as a judge before serving on the Alabama Supreme Court, Moore denounced what he called “vile accusations of sexual impropriety.”
Corfman’s attorney, Neil Roman, said in a statement: “These latest claims by the Moore camp have no more merit than those he has made before. . . . Ms. Corfman is no longer a teenager and is not going to let Mr. Moore victimize her again.”
The lawsuit also names Tina Johnson, who has said Moore grabbed her buttocks while she was in his office seeking legal advice; Beverly Young Nelson, who has accused Moore of groping her in a car in 1977 when she 16 years old; and Debbie Wesson Gibson, who has said Moore’s handwriting in Johnson’s high school yearbook matched his writing in a card he sent her when they were dating. Gibson said she met Moore when she was 17, after he spoke to her high school civics class.
