Leigh Corfman, of Gadsden, one of the women who accused Roy Moore of sexual misconduct decades ago, has filed a lawsuit against him.

Since publication of the Washington Post article on November 9, 2017, Mr. Moore has repeatedly attacked Ms. Corfman despite knowing that he sexually abused Ms. Corfman when she was 14 years old.

Moore, the homophobic former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, called Corfman's allegations "politically motivated", "completely false", and "malicious".

Corfman's lawsuit does not seek financial compensation beyond her own legal costs, but instead asks for "a declaratory judgment of defamation, a public apology from Moore, and a court-enforced ban on him or his campaign publicly attacking her again", the Post reports.

Mr Moore, who denies the allegation, is now lagging in opinion polls. "By this lawsuit, I seek to do what I could not do as a 14-year-old - hold Mr. Moore and those who enable him accountable". Finally, Corfman says she was subjected to hateful and derogatory remarks because of Moore's claims.

Corfman and her mother have said that Moore first approached her as she waited outside a custody hearing at the Etowah County courthouse.

She says Moore has made "false denials with reckless disregard of the truth" during an interview on nationally-syndicated radio program The Sean Hannity Show. Wearing only undershorts, Mr. Moore touched Ms. Corfman's private parts through her bra and underpants and guided her hand to touch his penis. He denied ever having known her and said he took a polygraph test to back up that statement.

Brett Doster, a spokesman for Moore, responded to the suit by telling the Post, "We look forward to transparently discussing these matters in a court of law".

Corfman's allegations came more than a month before the special election for the U.S. Senate seat on December 12.

Roy Moore, a Republican, lost to Democrat Doug Jones in last year's special Senate election in Alabama.

Several Alabama newspapers have endorsed Mr Moore's Democratic opponent, a remarkable step in such a staunchly Republican state. He denied the misconduct allegations, saying they were a result of "dirty politics".

Moore was a controversial candidate whose campaign was beset by allegations that he sexually assaulted or pursued teenage girls while he was in his 30s.
