Roy Moore sues Sacha Baron Cohen over ’defamatory’ TV prank

Share

The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, also names Showtime and CBS as defendants.

"This false and fraudulent portrayal and mocking of Judge Moore as a sex offender. has severely harmed Judge Moore's reputation and caused him, Mrs. Moore, and his entire family severe emotional distress, as well as caused and will cause plaintiffs financial damage", the complaint said.

Moore responded against Cohen with a $95 million lawsuit for defamation, fraud and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

A NY judge in 2008 tossed out lawsuits brought by a driving instructor and two etiquette school teachers who said they were duped into appearing in the movie "Borat" in which Baron Cohen plays an awkward foreign journalist traveling the United States.

"Defendant Cohen's character falsely and fraudulently introduced a false and fraudulent "device" supposedly invented by the Israeli Army to detect pedophiles".

"Who is America?" debuted earlier this year on Showtime, and numerous segments mocked Republicans and conservatives.

The show begins as Cohen, in full transformative makeup, discusses the importance of technology in the military.

When the device beeped, Moore stopped the interview and said: 'I've been married for 33 years.

Showtime issued the following statement: "The press has been sent copies of an alleged complaint, yet to our knowledge SHOWTIME has not been served". "Tonight, is the last EVER show of Who is America?".
