Judge Roy Moore to Court: Fraud Cancels Contract
Motion for reconsideration also cites court's 'extra-judicial bias'
May 15, 2019
A lawyer representing Roy Moore, who twice was elected chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and now is suing actor Sacha Cohen and Showtime for millions for fraudulently inducing him to appear on a show, is asking a federal court in Washington to reconsider a ruling that appears to be based on the alleged fraud.
Judge Thomas Hogan said the case must be heard in federal court in New York, not in Washington, D.C., where Moore filed his action for damages for being "maliciously defamed" by Cohen and Showtime.
But the basis for that ruling is a clause in the allegedly fraudulent contract and, therefore, should not be followed, argued a motion filed in the Washington court by Freedom Watch founder Larry Klayman.
