Back in September, Roy Moore filed a $95 million defamation suit against Showtime after Sasha Baron Cohen trolled him with a “pedophile detector” on the show which earlier this week earned a Golden Globe nomination.
Showtime’s parent company CBS has filed a motion to dismiss, prompting a rebuttal from busy, busy nutbag lawyer Larry Klayman. From the Hollywood Reporter:
“There are at least two primary misrepresentations at issue. The first misrepresentation was that Judge Moore was being flown to Washington, D.C., to receive an award for his support of Israel, when in actuality it was so that he could be falsely portrayed as a pedophile on national television. The second misrepresentation was that the television segment was being produced by Yerushalayim TV, and not Defendant Cohen, Showtime, and CBS.”
“The purported ‘Consent Agreement’ was strictly between Judge Moore and Yerushalayim TV. There is zero mention of Defendant Cohen, Defendant CBS, or Defendant Showtime in the ‘Consent Agreement.’ Yerushalayim Television, LLC is incorporated in the state of Montana. There is no indication on its Articles of Organization or Annual Report that it is in any way affiliated with any of the Defendants. As such, even if the Consent Agreement were a valid binding agreement — which it is not, as set forth above — Defendants clearly have no basis upon which to enforce its terms.”
Klayman is also currently representing Jerome Corsi and Joe Arpaio in their respective lawsuits against Robert Mueller and multiple media outlets.
