Many of you asked what happened to the sexual assault lawsuit filed by a man against CNN anchor Don Lemon.
Two years have passed since Dustin Hice filed the lawsuit accusing Lemon of sexual assault and battery.
In his lawsuit Hice claims the incident occurred at Murf’s Backstreet Tavern in the Hamptons in July 2018.
The lawsuit was filed in Suffolk County Court on Aug. 11, 2019, theJasmineBrand reports.
Hice’s attorney writes:
“[Lemon] put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers into Plaintiff’s mustache and under Plaintiff’s nose.
“Lemon intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head thrust backward as Defendant repeatedly asked Plaintiff ‘Do you like p***y or d**k?’ While saying this, Mr. Lemon continued to shove his fingers into Plaintiff’s face with aggression and hostility.”
Lemon and his co-anchor, Chris Cuomo, lashed out at social media users for putting them both on blast.
On Tuesday night, Lemon and Cuomo called for social media to be regulated.
“You shouldn’t just be able to spread things about people that’s not true,” Lemon said.
“It has a big influence on someone’s livelihood, their credibility, their career, even their lives. So I think it should be regulated. I’ve always thought that. I don’t think I should be able to go on Twitter or Facebook or Instagram and say whatever I want about Chris Cuomo whether it’s true or not.”
