12.09.16 – Gloria Allred and her granddaughter Sarah Bloom join the Supreme Court Justices and the Dwight D. Opperman Foundation on the occasion of the presentation of the Edward J. Devitt Distinguished Service to Justice Award at the Supreme Court of the United States, Washington D.C.

12.09.16 – Gloria Allred and her granddaughter Sarah Bloom join the Supreme Court Justices and the Dwight D. Opperman Foundation on the occasion of the presentation of the Edward J. Devitt Distinguished Service to Justice Award at the Supreme Court of the United States, Washington D.C.

12.01.16 – Today Attorney Gloria Allred, a Texas couple, and Texas attorneys hold a press conference to announce the filing of a lawsuit against a car dealership in Texas. A representative of the Toyota dealership took a customer’s phone to view financial information but then secretly found and viewed private unclothed photos of the customer’s wife which he forwarded to a swinger website.

12.01.16 – Today, a lawsuit was filed in Dallas District Court on behalf of Mr. and Mrs. Gautreaux against Texas Toyota of Grapevine and other defendants as set forth in the Petition which we filed on their behalf. On January 27, 2015 Tim and Claire went to a Toyota Dealership in Grapevine to buy a car. Tim is a pastor in charge of the Music Ministry at his Church. Claire is in retail management. Tim had downloaded an application onto his cell phone for pre-approved financing. The sales person asked to see the application on the phone and then told Tim and Claire that he needed to show the phone to his manager to get the financing approved. Tim thought nothing of it. He thought that this was just part of the sales transaction and handed his phone to the salespersons. This invasion of the Gautreaux’s privacy could have happened to anyone. The Gautreauxs were victimized by a phone predator. Undoubtedly this is not the first time that this has happened, but we hope that public awareness will help put a stop to this. They have come forward today, with great courage, because they wanted to make sure that what happened to them does not happen to anyone else and to teach Toyota that it cannot treat their customers that way.

11.29.16 – Attorney Gloria Allred appears at the Criminal Justice Center with two of her clients who are victims of Former NFL star Darren Sharper as they give their victim impact statements at his sentencing in Los Angeles.

11.29.16 – Today, Darren Sharper was sentenced to 20 years in state prison after he previously entered a plea to count of rape of an intoxicated victim and four counts of furnishing drugs. He is also required to register for the rest of his life as a sexual offender. We have civil lawsuits pending against Mr. Sharper on behalf of all three victims. This case should send a message to all predators that even if you are a celebrity sports figure, you are not above the law. Women will not be intimidated by your wealth, fame or power. Instead they will stand up and fight back.

11.11.16 – Today one of the women who has previously accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her held a press conference in Los Angeles to react to his election as President of the United States. Ms. Allred also issued a challenge to Mr. Trump.

11.11.16 – In the recent campaign for President, Donald Trump was heard on the Access Hollywood tapes bragging in vulgar language about grabbing women to kiss them and grabbing them by their genitals. He asserted that he could do this because he was a star. In the debate with Hillary Rodham Clinton, after Mr. Trump’s remarks were broadcast, Mr. Trump denied that he ever acted on the words that he used on the Access Hollywood tapes with Billy Bush. After his denial, a number of accusers came forward alleging that Mr. Trump had, in fact, assaulted them. Mr. Trump’s response was to call the accusers liars. He also threatened to sue them after the election and called their allegations, “fiction” and “fabrications”. Now Mr. Trump has been elected President of the United States. He is no longer just a star. He is now President-elect. ” I challenge him to seize the opportunity now to retract his statement that these accusers are liars, and that their allegations are fabrications and fictions. Retraction would undo some of the damage that he has inflicted on his accusers.”

11.04.16 – Today a hearing and argument were held in the civil lawsuit brought by Judith Huth against Bill Cosby. In her lawsuit, Ms. Huth alleges that she was 15 years old when she became the victim of sexual misconduct by Mr. Cosby. We believe that Mr. Cosby’s legal team is attempting to evade rules to depose prosecution witnesses.

11.04.16 – We are seeking a stay of discovery in Ms. Huth’s civil lawsuit. In our motion for a stay, we argue that Mr. Cosby’s lawyers are attempting to use Ms. Huth’s lawsuit to take the deposition (testimony under oath) of a potential “prior bad acts” witness in the criminal case. We contend that it is improper for Mr. Cosby’s attorneys to use Ms. Huth’s civil lawsuit in order to get around limits on depositions in criminal cases. The potential witness is also my client and is one of thirteen “prior bad acts” witnesses listed by the prosecution as potential witnesses in the criminal case now pending against Mr. Cosby in Pennsylvania.

10.28.16 – Former Miss Utah 1997, Temple Taggart, held a press conference today with attorney Gloria Allred to announce that together they will stand up to Donald Trump’s threat to sue the women who accuse him of inappropriate sexual conduct. Ms. Taggart is one of the women who accused Mr. Trump of kissing her on the lips without her consent and then being labeled by Mr. Trump as a liar.

10.28.16 – “Women who come forward about what they allege is Mr. Trump’s inappropriate sexual behavior should not be intimidated into silence by threats of lawsuits. It is important for them to know that there are lawyers who will represent them if that happens. This issue is not about sex. It is about the attitude and behavior of a man who seeks the highest office in our country, and who has already been caught on tape suggesting that he is entitled to grope and sexually assault women whenever he wishes to do so. I am here with Temple Taggart today in Utah to support her, because Mr. Trump has called her a liar and threatened to sue her.”

10.22.16 – Today Ms. Allred held a press conference in Los Angeles with yet another accuser of Donald Trump. Jessica Drake met Donald Trump 10 years ago, while working for Wicked Pictures, an adult film company, at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe. He invited her and two other women to his penthouse suite where he greeted each of them with a hug and kiss on the lips without their permission. The encounter ended with Jessica being offered $10,000 and use of his private jet to return to LA to have dinner with him that evening in that suite.

10.22.16 – This morning Donald Trump speaking at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania stated that he will sue all of the women who have come forward publicly to accuse him of inappropriate sexual contact with them. If Mr. Trump thought that such bullying tactics would silence his accusers and prevent other women from coming forward, he will be sorely disappointed. Women will not be intimidated into silence by Donald Trump. Mr. Trump your latest threat is an admission of the hopelessness of your cause. It is nothing more than a transparent promise of revenge. It is a new low even for you. Your threat is below the dignity of the office that you are seeking.

10.20.16 – Last night, in the final Presidential Debate Mr. Trump, was asked to respond to the allegations of nine women who alleged that they had been the victims of inappropriate sexual contact by Mr. Trump. He responded, “nobody has more respect for women than I do.” Yet today, we are here with yet another woman who accuses Donald Trump of disrespecting her by engaging in unwanted and inappropriate sexual behavior.

10.20.16 – Today’s victim also is noteworthy in that her allegations demonstrate how Mr. Trump selects his victims at random. Some of the women, including the woman who is here today, had an encounter with Mr. Trump that appeared to be strictly by chance. Mr. Trump, the fact that you are a celebrity does not give you a license to violate women. To the contrary it gives you more responsibility to respect women as many women will look up to you as a role model because of your celebrity status. To show respect for women means that you need to respect their boundaries and not to act on your impulses to grab and grope at your pleasure.

10.17.16 – In a Press conference held today in Los Angeles, Gloria Allred Responds to Donald Trump’s Campaign Attack on Her Client, Summer Zervos, Who Alleged That Trump Sexually Assaulted Her at the Beverly Hills Hotel by presenting a witness for Ms. Zevos allegations.

10.17.16 – On Friday I held a press conference with my client, Summer Zervos, who claims that she was sexually assaulted by Mr. Trump at the Beverly Hills hotel in 2007 when she met with him to discuss employment opportunities. Mr. Trump’s terrible smear campaign has been aimed at these brave women because they had the courage to come forward and reveal what they claim he did to them after his own words condemned him. In Summer’s case, Mr. Trump has denied meeting with her after she was no longer a contestant on the Apprentice and categorically denies meeting her at the Beverly Hills Hotel or engaging in any improper conduct towards her. Ann Russo is a licensed clinical social worker who was friends with Summer for several years. They had not been in touch for some time. Ann came forward today because she remembers that in 2010 Summer told her that Mr. Trump had been verbally, physically and sexually aggressive with her.

10.14.16 – Today another woman has courageously come forward to accuse Donald Trump of engaging in inappropriate sexual conduct with her. She held a press conference with her Attorney Gloria Allred in Los Angeles. Summer Zervos was a candidate on “The Apprentice” on season 5 when she first met Mr. Trump.

10.14.16 – Ms. Zervos claims that she was accosted by Donald at the Beverly Hills Hotel when she met with him to discuss employment opportunities. Instead of a job, Ms. Zervos claims that she got the Donald all over her, kissing her, touching her breast and leading her into his bedroom. When Summer first met Donald Trump she had great admiration for him. Unfortunately because of what she alleges that Mr. Trump did to her behind closed doors she is now deeply disappointed in him and feels hurt, betrayed and embarrassed by the way he treated her.

10.11.16 – Women’s groups held a press conference today in Los Angles and presented a letter to MGM leadership. The National Organization for Women (NOW), California Democratic Party Women’s Caucus and Attorney Gloria Allred called on MGM and Mark Burnett to release “Apprentice” footage.

10.11.16 – We held a press conference today to call for MGM and Mark Burnett to release footage from the Apprentice television show just days after the lewd 2005 recording surfaced of Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump boasting about using his power to sexually assault women. Releasing the tapes is a civic duty. Trump has made a campaign issue of his attitudes about women, African Americans, Latina/os, and other marginalized groups by his own statements and policy proposals. Voters have a compelling need to view and hear what this man says about those issues behind the scenes. We believe the compelling public interest overrides the confidentiality clauses MGM and Burnett are hiding behind. Those rules are not intended to shield a presidential candidate from scrutiny that he has invited by making his racism, xenophobia and misogyny a campaign issue.

10.04.16 – Gloria Allred expresses continued concerns about Donald in her recent press release

10.04.16 – I’m here today to express my deep concern about Donald Trump and why his sexist remarks and actions present a real and present danger to the rights of women, particularly women in the workplace.

09.28.16 – Today California Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. signed SB 813 which will eliminate the statute of limitations for the criminal prosecution of rape and sexual assault in California. The statute of limitations is an arbitrary time period set by law and prior to SB 813 being signed by the Governor it prevented many rape victims from having their cases even considered for criminal prosecution if they had not reported it to law enforcement within the legal time period that California required.

09.28.16 – A number of women, including many of my clients, had accused Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting them; but it was too late for California prosecutors to file a case even if they concluded that they had sufficient evidence to prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt. Even though it was too late for these accusers, we decided that we should work to change the law to help others.

Some of my clients who were accusers of Mr. Cosby testified with me before the California Legislature in support of the Justice for Victims Act. I also met with key advisors to Governor Brown in his office to explain why it was important that this bill become law.

The passage of this new law means that the courthouse doors will no longer be slammed shut in the face of rape victims. It puts sexual predators on notice that the passage of time may no longer protect them from serious criminal consequences for their acts of sexual violence.

We thank Senator Connie Leyva for carrying this important bill and Governor Brown for signing it into law. Although for constitutional reasons it cannot be retroactive, it is an important victory. We hope that this will send a message to other states to follow California’s lead and provide much needed justice for victims.

09.20.16 – A status conference was held today on the Judith Huth v. William H. Cosby civil lawsuit in the Los Angeles County Superior Court. In her lawsuit, Ms. Huth alleges that she was 15 years old when she became the victim of sexual misconduct by Mr. Cosby.

09.20.16 – Last time we were here in court there was a partial stay on discovery because the criminal case was pending. It was not clear that the criminal case would proceed because of certain challenges to that case and appeals and attempts to dismiss it, but now it is clear that it is set for trial for June 5, 2017. Since we last appeared before this court we have engaged in discovery. We had noticed the deposition for this Friday of Margie Shapiro, who is also our client. However on September 6 we learned that she was listed in a motion filed by the prosecution in the criminal case of the People v. Cosby now pending in Pennsylvania as one of 13 potential witnesses under Pennsylvania’s Prior Bad Acts Doctrine. We then withdrew our subpoena and notified opposing counsel that we would not proceed with Ms. Shapiro’s deposition on Friday because we believe that they are attempting to use civil discovery to get around the limits on criminal discovery in the criminal case. Even though we are very anxious to have our civil case tried, we believe that the criminal case should take precedence and that there should be a stay on all discovery on Ms. Huth’s civil lawsuit.

09.08.16 – Gloria Allred held a press conference in Atlanta, Georgia today to announce a victory in the federal lawsuit she had filed after she and some other Cosby protesters were excluded from a Bill Cosby “Far From Finished” comedy show in 2015.

09.08.16 – Ms. Allred, who represents 33 accusers of Mr. Cosby, had protested Mr. Cosby’s appearance in his “Far From Finished” show at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Cobb County on May 2, 2015. After the protest, Ms. Allred attempted the Arts Center to view Mr. Cosby’s performance. She was told by Cobb County Police, however, that her name appeared on a list “a security watch list” and that even though she had a ticket to the performance and despite the fact that she stated that she would not disrupt Mr. Cosby’s performance, she would not be permitted to enter to view it. In addition, Ms. Allred was told that “if she did not leave the property” she would be considered “a criminal trespass” and would be subject to arrest. Ms. Allred discovered evidence later that in advance of Mr. Cosby’s show, a representative of Mr. Cosby was communicating with the police concerning what the representative called “agitators” and what was being said about Mr. Cosby on social media. After Ms. Allred was excluded from the Cosby show, Ms. Allred filed a lawsuit against Cobb County alleging that her constitutional right to free speak was violated when she was excluded from the Bill Cosby performance because of her views about him. At the press conference Ms. Allred and her attorney will explained why the settlement is significant not only for her but for other members of the public.

09.06.16 – “As Bill Cosby sought to have evidence excluded in his criminal case at a Pennsylvania court today, attorneys for the scandal-plagued comedian sought to attack one of Cosby’s biggest nemeses, attorney Gloria Allred.”

09.06.16 – “Mr. Cosby appears desperate. With his latest pathetic attack on me, he unsuccessfully tries to portray himself as a victim rather than as a defendant in a criminal case accused of aggravated indecent sexual assault.” – Gloria Allred

09.06.16 – Today Attorney Gloria Allred and one of her clients, an actress who has accused Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting her, held a press conference in Sacramento with Senator Connie Leyva at the State Capitol to urge Governor Jerry Brown to sign SB 813 (Justice for Victim’s Act) which would eliminate the statute of limitations (SOL) for criminal prosecution of rape and sexual assault in California.

09.06.16 – Ms. Allred has also testified before the legislature in California in support of SB813 which would completely eliminate the SOL for rape and sexual assault in California. She has also testified in Nevada and Colorado on bills which extended the statute of limitations for rape and sexual assault cases there and was with the Governors of those states when they signed those bills into law. This morning she met with advisors to Governor Brown in the Governor’s office to explain why she believes that Governor Brown should sign this bill into law and to discuss why rape victims sometimes delay telling anyone about what they have suffered. 16 other states have already passed bills similar to SB813. Signing SB813 into law in California will help to protect and empower rape victims. “I urge Governor Brown to sign this important bill. If he does sign it, statutes of limitations no longer will be a sexual predator’s best friend and a victim’s worst enemy.”

08.26.16 – Gloria Allred celebrates Women’s Equality Day at the premier of the new film Equal Means Equal in Los Angeles.

08.26.16 – Gloria joins writer/director/producer Kamala Lopez and Executive Producer Patricia Arquette for the screening of the film Equal Means Equal. The film premiered as a celebration of the 96th anniversary of Women’s Equality Day. Women’s Equality day is proclaimed each year by the United States President to commemorate women winning the right to vote throughout the country. Women were granted the right to vote on August 26, 1920 when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified as law.

08.22.16 – Attorney Gloria Allred and her transgender male client Rose Trevis, who was denied a haircut because he was perceived to be a female, held a press conference today In Los Angeles, Ca. They provided details and explained the significance of the settlement of a civil rights lawsuit against Hawleywood’s barber shop which refused service to Rose because the shop refused to serve women and perceived him to be a woman.

08.22.16 – We are now able to officially confirm that we have achieved all of the goals which we announced that we were seeking to achieve when we announced the filing of this lawsuit. Hawleywood’s (the defendant) has agreed to settle this case and has agreed to a permanent injunction and entry of judgment prohibiting Hawleywood’s from directly or indirectly violating Civil Code Section 51 (the Unruh Civil Rights Act) by maintaining discriminatory business policies or practices including, but not limited to, refusing to offer services to individuals due to their gender or perceived gender. Further, they are prohibited from violating Civil Code Section 51 (the Unruh Civil Rights Act) by posting, advertising or marketing, in any form including, but not limited to, print, online, or verbal that indicates a policy of refusing to provide services or accommodations based on an individual’s gender or perceived gender. Although Hawleywood’s has denied that it discriminated, in addition to agreeing to the court’s entering an injunction against it, it has also agreed to pay our client damages and attorney’s fees.

07.13.16 – As the result of the Presidential candidates caucus vote on May 1, 2016 in California’s 33rd Congressional District, Gloria was successful in winning a seat with the California Statewide Delegation pledged to Hillary Clinton. She is looking forward to joining the National Convention this month on July 25-28 in Philadelphia to help Hillary make “herstory” by becoming the first woman presidential nominee for a major U.S. political party. Ninety-six years after women won the right to vote, a woman stands a good chance of winning the White House.

07.07.16 – Attorney Gloria Allred Held An Unusual Press Conference to Comment on Two Rape and Sexual Assault Cases Against an NFL Player and a Musician

07.07.16 – Attorney Gloria Allred Held An Unusual Press Conference to Comment on Two Rape and Sexual Assault Cases Against an NFL Player and a Musician

At the first press conference Ms. Allred commented on the sexual assault conviction of C.J. Spillman, in Texas last week. Spillman, who formerly played for the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys, was convicted recently of sexually assaulting Ms. Allred’s client. He was sentenced to 5 years in prison and required to register as a sex offender.Ms. Allred also represents a massage therapist who filed a police report prior to the Texas sexual assault alleging that Spillman had assaulted her in California. The California case was never prosecuted and Spillman was allowed to continue to play for the NFL.

In the second press conference Ms. Allred was joined by Shelby, a rape victim. She and the victim announced the filing of a civil lawsuit against Scott Bennett, a musician formerly with the Brian Wilson band, who was convicted of raping Shelby. The victim expressed her concern that the video of her being sexually assaulted at the Hard Rock Hotel may be released by the court to the media. She discussed why she opposes the release of the video which the media is seeking. The court has indicated that it will decide that issue this month.

06.26.16 – Gloria Allred Car in New York Pride Parade on Sunday June 26, 2016, to Feature Humorous Protest Against Laws in Many States Which Prohibit Transgender Individuals from Using Bathrooms of the Gender with Which They Self Identify

06.26.16 – Attorney Gloria Allred had a car in the New York City Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade on Sunday June 26, 2016. Her car feature a humorous protest against bathroom laws in many states which discriminate and seek to exclude individuals on account of the fact that they are transgender. Ms. Allred has appeared every year for more than 35 years in the West Hollywood Pride Parade and this was her first appearance in the New York Pride Parade. For all of these years, she has represented gay, lesbian and transgender victims of discrimination. She plans to file a friend of the court brief, with the United States Supreme Court, if the Court accepts state challenges to a recent directive by President Obama requiring schools which receive federal funds to allow individuals who are transgender to use the bathroom of the gender with which the individual self identifies, rather than one that is consistent with their birth certificates, as some states presently require.

06.22.16 – Gloria Allred held a press conference today in Gilroy CA to announce the filing of two new lawsuits against the school district on behalf of child victims of sexual misconduct by one of its teachers.

06.22.16 – Today we filed two new lawsuits against Gilroy Unified School District (GUSD). We have filed these cases on behalf of two former students of Douglas Le. Mr. Le was a teacher and he was involved in athletics at Gilroy High School. We allege that GUSD failed to protect and safeguard our clients from the sexual misconduct against them by Mr. Le, even though GUSD knew that Mr. Le had previously engaged in unlawful sexually related conduct with minors at Gilroy High School, because GUSD had been warned about Mr. Le by Celest Benn, and our investigation has revealed that Ms. Benn was not the only person who notified the school district about the misconduct of Mr. Le. A major goal of our lawsuits is to impose policy and practice changes on the district to make sure that this never happens again. In addition, we are seeking damages, including punitive damages according to proof at trial. Our clients, who are minor children, were seriously harmed and impacted by GUSD’s failure to protect them from verbal, physical and sexual harassment by their teacher.

06.15.16 – Attorney Gloria Allred and the victim from the Oklahoma rape case of People vs. Scott Bennett held a press conference today in Los Angeles, CA. Scott Bennett, the convicted rapist had worked for 15 years with Brian Wilson’s touring band. He has also worked as a musician with Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, David Crosby, Elton John, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel. Mr. Bennett was sentenced yesterday in Oklahoma to 5 years in prison and required to register as a sex offender.

06.15.16 – Yesterday, Scott Bennett, was sentenced in Oklahoma after having been convicted by a jury recently of rape by instrumentation and sexual battery of a 21-year-old intoxicated young woman at the Hard Rock Hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The victim spoke to the press for the first time, allowed herself to be photographed and made her name, Shelby Pfeffer, public in order to help other young women. Shelby wants to send a message to sexual predators. If a woman is incapacitated because she is under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, you have no right to touch her, sexually batter her or rape her because she cannot consent. This victim wants to send the message that the individuals who should be ashamed are the sexual predators who rape vulnerable women. It is the predators who have committed a crime, not the vulnerable victims.

06.12.16 – Gloria Allred participates in the 2016 West Hollywood Pride Parade on Sunday June 12

06.12.16 – Today Gloria Allred had a car in the West Hollywood Pride Parade which featured humorous protests against laws in many states which exclude transgender individuals from using the bathrooms of the gender in which they identify. She plans to file a friend of the court brief, with the United States Supreme Court, if the Court accepts state challenges recent directive to schools requiring schools which receive federal funds to allow individuals who are transgender to use bathroom of the gender with which the individual self identifies rather than one that is consistent with their birth certificates, as some states presently require. Ms. Allred has appeared every year for more than 35 years in the West Hollywood Pride Parade. For all of those years, she has represented gay, lesbian and transgenders who are the victims of discrimination on account of their sexual orientation or the fact that they are perceived to be transgender or are transgender.

06.10.16 – Attorney Gloria Allred, who represents more than thirty accusers of Bill Cosby and who testified in support of HB 16-1260 will attended a press conference today with one of her clients, Cosby accuser, Beth Ferrier of Denver after Governor Hickenlooper signs the bill. This bill extends the Statute of Limitations for the criminal prosecution of rape and sexual assault in Colorado.

06.10.16 – Today Ms. Allred was very happy to be in Colorado to witness Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signing HB 16-1260 into law which will extend the statute of limitations in Colorado to 20 years for criminal prosecution of rape. “As lawyers and as legislators we should ask who benefits from a relatively short statute of limitations for rape and sexual assault and who is hurt by it. The answer is simple. The victim is hurt and the rapist is helped.” Nevada has already passed a similar bill into law and now Colorado has stepped up to provide further rights to rape victims in this state. “We look forward to other states following Colorado’s lead to further empower survivors of rape and allow many of them their day in court.”

06.09.16 – Occidental College probe: School agrees to reforms in handling sexual misconduct complaints three years after Attorney Gloria Allred announced the filing of a federal civil rights complaint against the college.

06.09.16 – The long awaited findings by the U.S. Department of Education’s civil rights office came three years after 50 then students and faculty members filed federal complaints that administrators at the Eagle Rock liberal arts school had fostered a hostile environment for victims of sexual assault. The complaints drew national attention when they were announced in 2013 at a high profile news conference with several of the victims and prominent women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred. The complaints alleged that administrators discouraged victims from reporting sexual assault, failed to inform them of their rights or process their complaints promptly and imposed inadequate sanctions against known assailants. They also charged Occidental with retaliating against whistleblowers, conducting biased investigations with interrogations that traumatized victims and “woefully inadequate” education and prevention efforts.

06.01.16 – Today actress La Rivers and her attorney Gloria Allred held a press conference in New York to announce the filing of a lawsuit against New York’s “Playpen for Millionaires” (NY Post 07.07.14) where Ms. Rivers ended up bloodied and unconscious after being assaulted outside the famous nightspot by the manager at that time.

06.01.16 – Today we filed a lawsuit in New York Supreme Court on behalf of La Rivers against Beautique (a restaurant, lounge in New York City) and against a Beautique manager who according to the lawsuit assaulted Ms. Rivers. Beautique asserts on its website that it is “frequented by celebrities in entertainment and music” and after the kitchen closes “becomes one of the hottest nightclubs in New York City”. According to our lawsuit, on June 20, 2015, Ms. Rivers set out for the evening with two friends and her father. The group began the night at the Player’s Theater downtown and then to a post-premier celebration at about 12:30 am at Beautique. At approximately 2:00 a.m., Ms. Rivers left Beautique with her friends and father and went to hail a taxi. As the taxi pulled up to Ms. Rivers, a Beautique manager, Edward Moffett, suddenly ran past her and attempted to open and enter the passenger-side door. A verbal altercation ensued and Mr. Moffett assaulted Ms. Rivers with such force that she fell immediately to the ground and was knocked unconscious. The lawsuit is against both Beautique and the manager who assaulted Ms. Rivers alleging battery and assault. In addition, we allege negligent screening, hiring and retention, and negligence against the Beautique defendants. We allege in our lawsuit that Beautique also allowed Mr. Moffett to become heavily intoxicated at its establishment, which contributed to his belligerence and misogynistic violence. Of particular concern to us is that the manager, Mr. Edward Moffett, had criminal convictions prior to his assault of Ms. Rivers. We are seeking damages according to proof at trial. We look forward to Ms. Rivers having her day in court.

05.05.16 – Today, we filed a lawsuit on behalf of our client, the daughter of Celest Benn. Ms. Benn’s 15 year old daughter was a student at Gilroy High School. The complaint alleges that in October, 2014 Mr. Le, her chemistry teacher, sent Ms. Benn’s daughter a number of sexually harassing text messages. Ms. Benn reported these serious sexually inappropriate messages from the teacher to her child to the School District immediately upon learning of them. Our lawsuit alleges that the District failed to take any meaningful action in response to the complaint.

We want the District to know that there are consequences for their failure to live up to their responsibilities.

05.04.16 – The ABC’s (Associates for Breast & Prostate Cancer Studies) honored Gloria Allred with their Women of Achievement Award at a luncheon held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA.

05.04.16 – The ABC’s (Associates for Breast & Prostate Cancer Studies) honored Gloria Allred with their Women of Achievement Award at a luncheon held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA.

04.14.16 – Gloria Allred speaks out about Mr. Cosby’s attempt to derail the Huth v. Cosby case after yet another hearing at a Santa Monica courthouse today.

04.14.16 – We appeared this morning in court in Santa Monica to oppose Mr. Cosby’s demurrer to the second amended complaint in our case. The court did not decide this case this morning. The court has taken the arguments under submission and will issue a written ruling soon. We believe that this was yet another desperate attempt by Mr. Cosby to derail our case and avoid having to face our client Ms. Huth in a court of law. All Ms. Huth has ever wanted is the opportunity to present her case to a jury. All Mr. Cosby has ever wanted is to avoid having to face a jury. We trust a jury to decide this case. Mr. Cosby obviously does not.

04.12.16 – Today in Sacramento CA the Senate Public Safety Committee considered SB 813 (Justice for Victims Act) seeking to end the statute of limitations for rape and related crimes in California. Gloria Allred joined Senator Connie Leyva, who authored the Bill, outside on the Capitol steps for a press conference.

04.12.16 – Senator Connie Leyva and Attorney Gloria Allred spoke outside the Capitol building today regarding the existing California law which generally limits the prosecution of a felony sexual offense to only 10 years after the offense is committed and why they believe that statute should be eliminated. Three of Bill Cosby’s alleged victims also gave their testimony. The Senate Committee gave its first approval to a bill that would allow sex crimes to be prosecuted no matter how long ago they occurred. This is a big victory which now allows the bill to move to the Senate Appropriations Committee.

04.07.16 – Today Gloria Allred held a press conference in New York with three of her clients who were battered and assaulted on a Spirit Airlines flight from Baltimore to Los Angeles. She announced the filing of a lawsuit against Spirit Airlines for their negligence and for the intentional infliction of emotional distress inflicted upon these victims of the attack.

04.07.16 – When the three women boarded an early morning flight on March 9, 2016 to Los Angeles, they were expecting a tranquil six-hour plane ride to their vacation destination. To their dismay, however, they were seated behind three female passengers who, thanks to Spirit Airlines’ decision to allow them to consume excessive amounts of alcohol, became highly intoxicated and emboldened to behave in a rowdy and rambunctious manner. During the flight, these passengers blared loud music, sang loudly, standing and dancing to the music and yelling racial remarks. When one of the victims politely informed them that these racial remarks were offensive one of the intoxicated passengers stood up, turned around and began to physically assault her. The others intoxicated women joined in the attack. Spirit Airlines failed to take meaningful action to monitor and/or control these passengers, and worse, continued to serve these passengers alcoholic beverages. We believe a very important legal principle is illustrated by what happened on this flight. An airline which is a common carrier owes its passengers the highest duty of care. Further, an airline has a duty to train its personnel to monitor and control passengers who do become intoxicated during the flight. An airline has a duty to protect all of its passengers and to get them safely to their destination.

03.29.16 – Gloria Allred held a press conference in Los Angeles today to announce the filing of a civil rights lawsuit against the barber shop which refused service to a client because the shop refuses to serve women and perceived this customer to be a woman.

03.29.16 – Today we filed a civil rights lawsuit on behalf of Rose Trevis against Hawleywood’s Barber Shop in Long Beach, CA. On March 4, 2016 Rose and her domestic partner Laura Lozano were walking in Long Beach, California when Rose decided to get a haircut at a nearby barber shop. Rose and Laura entered Hawleywood’s Barber Shop and Rose asked a barber there for a haircut. The barber stated that Hawleywood’s only provided services to customers who had appointments. Rose then asked for an appointment time and asked if there were any available that day. The barber then stared at Rose as if he was examining her appearance and stated “We don’t cut women’s hair”. Rose is a transgender male with a masculine gender expression. Rose alleges that a second barber replied that the business has “the right to refuse services to anyone” and that the business “is an old school barber shop” and therefore they do not service women. Rose told the second barber that refusing to provide services on account of gender was discrimination. We are seeking an injunction (a court order mandating that Hawleywood’s barber shop eliminate its policy and practice of illegally discriminating on the basis of gender or perceived gender and mandating that it stop refusing to provide accommodations or services for those reasons in their place of business).

02.26.16 – Bill Cosby’s attorneys went to court this morning to attempt to delay Mr. Cosby’s second deposition in the case of Huth v. Cosby and to obtain a hearing date in order to argue that the court should stay the entire case from moving forward.

02.26.16 – Mr. Cosby appeared for his first deposition in this case in October 2015. After that deposition we filed a motion to compel Mr. Cosby to appear for a second deposition. Over Mr. Cosby’s objection the court granted our motion to compel and ordered Mr. Cosby’s second deposition to take place by February 29, 2016. Recently, Mr. Cosby’s lawyers went back to court seeking to postpone that second deposition date to an indefinite date in the future. We opposed that. The court denied Mr. Cosby’s ex parte application and then ordered that he appear for his second deposition in this case on a date between March 8 and April 8, 2016. Counsel were to agree on a date within that time frame and both sides agreed to the date of April 7, 2016 for Mr. Cosby’s second deposition. Yesterday we learned that Mr. Cosby’s lawyers are going back to court today to seek to postpone Mr. Cosby’s court ordered second deposition again. We were there to oppose their motion.

01.04.16 – Gloria Allred holds news conference today in New York with a 14 year old girl and her mother to respond to OK! Magazine’s cover story that appears to portray the teenager as excited to be a part of an alleged sex scandal involving Kylie Jenner.

01.04.16 – Recently, OK! Magazine published a cover story with the large headline that stated “Tyga In Love With Underage Teen.” The cover displayed a large photo of Kylie Jenner and a smaller photo of the rapper, Tyga. The photo of Tyga contained the caption headline that stated “Kylie Betrayed”. In a circle on the cover was a pixelated photo of the underage teenager in question and photos of what were called “their shocking texts”. Today “we want to set the record straight”. This teenager (Molly) was not excited about “hooking up” with Tyga, an adult celebrity. The truth is that she did not want to have any relationship with him – let alone “hooking up” with him. Such a suggestion portrays Molly in a completely false light and has resulted in embarrassment and unfair and insensitive hurtful statements about Molly. Molly’s mother, Anne feels that it is completely inappropriate for an adult male to communicate with her 14 year old daughter, ask for her phone number and ask when she is coming to L.A and feels that OK! Magazine owes both of them an apology.

I start every day with the knowledge that helping people and fighting for justice is my duty, and that nothing worthwhile comes without sacrifice, self- discipline, and courage.
