She said her defamation suit will allow her to "seek to do what I could not do as a 14-year-old - hold Mr. Moore and those who enable him accountable".
The lawsuit says, "Mr. Moore and the Moore Campaign Committee will likely continue to defame Ms. Corfman if they are not stopped by this Court".

The lawsuit, filed in Montgomery Circuit Court, asks Moore to publicly apologize. Moore has denied the allegations.
