News outlets including the Jewish Forward and the Washington Examiner have said that the candidate's wife was referring to Richard Jaffe, a Jewish lawyer who represented the couple's son, Caleb Moore, when he was charged with drug possession several years ago.

During the campaign, Corfman wrote an open letter to Moore demanding that he stop attacking her character, but she said he continued to do so. "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". Basically, they denied the claims and called her a liar, on multiple occasions. Ms. Corfman resisted Mr. Moore and asked him to take her home.

The cases typically argue that when the accused deny the allegations against them, they are harming the reputation of their accusers.

According to the lawsuit, Corfman alleges that Roy Moore has defamed her "repeatedly and in all forms of media, calling her a liar and questioning her motivation for publicly disclosing that Mr. Moore sexually abused her in 1979 when she was a 14-year-old high school freshman and he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney". He then proceeded to touch her over her undergarments and placed her hand over his underwear. In addition, Corfman's mother recalls being approached outside the courthouse and she also learned about her daughter's "dates" with Moore decades before this election.

'Mr. Moore's continued attacks against Ms. Corfman after the election and the content of his affidavit demonstrate that if not enjoined, he will continue to defame Ms. Corfman, if simply for the objective of furthering his political goals, ' Corfman's attorney wrote in the lawsuit. The suit asks Moore and his campaign for a public apology, a retraction of all defamatory statements and a block on future attacks.
