According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice and Senate race loser is now seeking $95 million in damages for defamation after being a guest on Who Is America? During the segment, which you can watch in the video above, Cohen is disguised as “anti-terror expert” named Erran Morad, who uses a device “supposedly invented by the Israeli Army to detect pedophiles,” obviously referencing the numerous sexual assault allegations against Moore.
"They have now used [seismic] technology to identify other abnormalities," Cohen told Moore in the clip holding a wand-style device. "It turns out that sex offenders and particularly pedophiles secrete an enzyme 4DDHT, which is actually detectable. It is three times the level of non-perverts, so the phrase 'sweating like a rapist' is actually based on science."
When Cohen waves it across Moore, the device beeps.
As a result of the episode, the lawsuit alleges that Moore’s family has "been the subject of widespread ridicule and humiliation" and caused the former judge "severe emotional distress and pain and financial damage."
"Defendant Cohen’s character falsely and fraudulently introduced a false and fraudulent 'device' supposedly invented by the Israeli Army to detect pedophiles," the complaint filed Wednesday reads. "During the segment, Defendant Cohen’s 'device'–as part of the false and fraudulent routine–purports to detect Judge Moore as a sex offender, thus defaming him."
Moore, who was accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old while he was in his 30s, is far from the only outraged guest from Who Is America? One Georgia lawmaker was forced to step down after his racist appearance on the show, and Cohen also convinced Joe Arpaio to give Donald Trump a blow job.
The suit also names CBS and Showtime for defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and fraud.
