Alabama's Roy Moore Sues Over Embarrassing Appearance On Sacha Cohen Series

Roy Moore Suing Sacha Baron Cohen Over His 'Who Is America' Appearance

This combination photo shows Sacha Baron Cohen, left, at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Beverly Hills, Calif. on March 4, 2018, and former Alabama Chief Justice and U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore at a news conference in Birmingham, Ala., on November 16, 2017.

Moore's lawyers argue that the judge's family has "been the subject of widespread ridicule and humiliation" as a result of Cohen's actions, which they say includes "severe emotional distress and pain and financial damage".

Moore and his wife are suing the actor and the show networks CBS and Showtime.

Moore faced sexual misconduct accusations during last year's Senate race in Alabama. He has denied the allegations.

Evolution-denier Moore has been suspended from the Supreme Court of Alabama for disobeying federal laws on marriage equality, and has described homosexuality as 'a crime against nature, an inherent evil, and an act so heinous that it defies one's ability to describe it'.

"Morad" then proceeded using the device on Moore as a test, and voila, it immediately began beeping.

The lawsuit alleges that Cohen's use of a disguise to lure Moore and his wife, Kayla, to Washington, DC, for the interview was fraudulent. The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, also names Showtime and CBS as defendants.

Moore is suing for damages of $95 million and has asked for as a jury trial.

U.S. aid cut was money owed, not assistance
The reason the US has allowed Pakistan to play this game for so long is the issue of resupplying our troops in Afghanistan. Last August, Trump announced a new strategy for South Asia focused on eliminating terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

"The press has been sent copies of an alleged complaint, yet to our knowledge SHOWTIME has not been served".

"If they detect a pedophile, the wand alerts the law enforcement and the schools within a 100-mile radius", Cohen said, taking out the wand.

Besides Moore, former Vice President Dick Cheney, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and several others have been punked on the show.

Another episode led a Georgia state representative to resign after he shouted racial slurs and exposed his rear end in a supposed anti-terrorism self-defense drill.

Previously, even before the show had aired, Moore had issued a statement, conceding he had been pranked by Baron Cohen's "trickery, deception and dishonesty."

According to the lawsuit, Cohen, "while in character, falsely and fraudulently induces unsuspecting victims, such as Judge Moore to be interviewed under dishonest, unethical, illegal and false pretenses".

When the gadget beeped at Moore, he stormed off set.
