2017 Videos and Statements

12.08.17 – Today in Atlanta Ms. Allred held a press conference with a woman who accused Roy Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16 years old. She is fighting back against allegations that Roy Moore did not know her and did not sign her year book.

12.08.17 – At the press conference Ms. Allred distributed a report from an expert which concludes that the signature in Beverly Nelson’s yearbook is that of Roy Moore. The report includes the name of the expert, his impressive background which qualifies him as an expert in forensic handwriting and document examination and his report which details his analyses and his findings. Beverly discussed how she feels about the false statements that have been made about her by either Roy Moore or some of his supporters.

12.05.17 – Today a New York state judge heard arguments from both sides in the defamation lawsuit of Summer Zervos, former contestant on The Apprentice, against President Donald Trump. Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Jennifer Schecter will now rule on whether the case should move forward to trial. Trump has denied Zervos’ allegations as well as those of at least twelve other women who have accused him of sexual misconduct, calling them “lies,” “nonsense” and “100 percent fabricated.” If the suit does move forward, Trump has already requested that it be delayed until he is out of office. Zervos’ attorney argued against that contention in the interest of preserving evidence, recollections and testimony and offered to accommodate the president’s schedule.

11.13.17 – Gloria Allred held a press conference today with a very brave woman from Alabama who alleges that when she was a minor that she was sexually assaulted by Roy Moore. She alleges that at the time of the alleged assault Mr. Moore was a District Attorney in Etowah County, Alabama. Mr. Moore subsequently became an Alabama Supreme Court Justice and had the unique distinction of being twice removed from that Court for ethical violations.

11.13.17 – Beverly Young Nelson has chosen to come forward because she thinks that it is important to share what she alleges were her experiences with Mr. Moore when she was 15 and 16 years old. Beverly is willing to testify under oath to the statement that she has made today. We urge the United States Senate Judiciary Committee to hold a public hearing as soon as possible. Beverly is willing to voluntarily appear at such a hearing to testify under oath. Pending the United State Senate’s decision as to whether a hearing will be held, Beverly has decided to decline interviews with the press. However, if the Senate does not schedule a hearing to be held within two weeks from today, then Beverly will answer questions in a different public forum.

10.25.17 – Today Gloria Allred held a press conference in New York with another alleged victim of Harvey Weinstein. Ms. Allred, who now represents numerous victims of Mr. Weinstein, detailed what she believes must be done by the Weinstein Company in order to provide justice for victims.

10.25.17 – Natassia Malthe alleges that Mr. Weinstein came to her hotel room and sexually forced himself on her even though she made it clear to him that she was not interested in having any sexual relationship with him. She also alleges that he lured her to the Peninsula Hotel in Los Angeles to discuss a film that she was auditioning for and that he tried to get her to do a “threesome” with him and another woman while there. The Weinstein Company has publicly announced that it is concerned about the victims and that it wants them to achieve justice. However, to date, they have not done anything to show that they are sincere in their intentions or that they intend to take any action to achieve their stated goal of justice for victims. It is time for the Weinstein Company to put their money where their mouths are. It is easy to weep crocodile tears for Harvey’s victims and talk about wanting justice, but that is not enough. Action and concrete steps are needed.

10.24.17 – Today in New York a new alleged victim comes forward with Attorney Gloria Allred to discuss a “new low” even for Harvey Weinstein.

10.24 17 – Mimi Haleyi has come forward in order to support others who have been brave enough to break the silence about what they allege they suffered as a result of meeting Harvey Weinstein. Although others have spoken out before her, each victim’s voice and experience is very important to ensure that sexual harassment and sexual assault does not continue to be inflicted on women by powerful men who act as though there are no boundaries and no rules that apply to them. Although it is painful for Mimi to have to recall publicly what she alleges was a shocking sexual assault on her by Mr. Weinstein, she is willing to speak what she says is her truth in order to help other women.

10.20.17 – Today former actress Heather Kerr held a news conference with her attorney Gloria Allred to discuss Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual assault of her. Harvey told her “how Hollywood works”. That you had to be “good” in bed and sleep with directors and producers to get a job.

10.20 17 – “There is no doubt that many women were forced to degrade themselves in order to get anywhere in an industry which has always been dominated by powerful men who can snap their fingers and make or break careers. Well, no more. That may be the way it was. It is not the way it will be in the future, because, Harvey, you and others like you are done. Women won’t take it anymore. We are taking our power back and we will never allow things to go back to where they were when you and others abused women and made it clear to them that they had to put out or they were out – out of their career dreams, out of employment opportunities, out of sight and out of mind.”

10.16.17 – CNN reports “Trump campaign subpoenaed over sexual assault allegations.” Trump said, “All I can say is it’s totally fake news, just fake. It’s fake. It’s made-up stuff, and it’s disgraceful what happens, but that happens in the world of politics.”

10.16.17 – CNN reports “Trump campaign subpoenaed over sexual assault allegations.” Trump said, “All I can say is it’s totally fake news, just fake. It’s fake. It’s made-up stuff, and it’s disgraceful what happens, but that happens in the world of politics.”

10.10.17 – Today in Los Angeles, Gloria Allred held a press conference with a new accuser of Harvey Weinstein who is speaking out about the sexual harassment she alleges that she endured as a young actress and screenwriter who at the request of Mr. Weinstein was simply pitching her screenplay to him at the Sundance Film Festival.

10.10.17 – Louisette Giess worked in the film and music industry for over twenty years. She is speaking out today because even though Harvey Weinstein has been terminated from his employment with the Weinstein Company, Louisette and Gloria both feel that there has not yet been justice for many women who allege that they were victims of sexual harassment. Although there are reports that Mr. Weinstein entered into settlements with eight women who alleged that they were sexually harassed by Mr. Weinstein, many more women who allege that they were victims never filed claims or lawsuits against him. Many of these women feared the power that Harvey Weinstein had and were concerned that if they took legal action or spoke out that he could ruin their careers. It is not enough for him to acknowledge pain that he has caused and to seek therapy. He needs to go further and provide justice to these who allege that they are his victims.

09.29.17 – Today in Chicago the brother of victim Lorry Ann Borowski, Mark Borowski, held a press conference with his attorney Gloria Allred to discuss Satanic cult murderer Thomas Kokoraleis’ imminent release from prison.

09.29.17 – Today in Chicago the brother of victim Lorry Ann Borowski, Mark Borowski, held a press conference with his attorney Gloria Allred to discuss Satanic cult murderer Thomas Kokoraleis’ imminent release from prison. The “Ripper Crew” murderer was scheduled to be released today but that has been delayed until he finds approved housing. Family and friends have been dreading this day and still hope and pray that the State’s Attorney and the Illinois Attorney General will conclude that there is sufficient evidence to file a petition to civilly commit Kokoraleis.

09.28.17 – U.S. Marines Revenge Naked Photo Scandal. Kally Wayne, a former U.S. Marine, who was one of the victims of the revenge sex video scandal in which male U.S Marines posted sexually graphic photos and/or videos of female U.S. Marines on private web pages without the knowledge or consent of the female victims, held a press conference in New York today with her Attorney Gloria Allred to announce new action which she has taken and which she encourages other victims to take.

09.29.17 – Kally Wayne is one of many female Marines victimized by the posting on social media of sexually explicit photos or videos or non-sexual photos of them by male United States Marines without the knowledge or consent of the victims whose photos or videos were posted. Despite the Marine Commandant General Neller’s warning that such conduct may be punishable under Article 92 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), we are disappointed to have to report that such offensive and prohibited conduct continues and is still bringing dishonor to the otherwise proud United States Marine Corps. This scandal will not end until serious consequences are imposed. We will not stop speaking out until respect is restored for the women of the United States Marines, and they are afforded the justice and equal treatment that they are entitled to enjoy.

09.26.17 – Today Gloria Allred joined Assembly Member Lisa Krasner in Carson City Nevada to introduce a new proposed bill in the State of Nevada which will require a Nevada Parole Board to take into account an inmate’s history of domestic violence when making their decision to grant or not to grant an inmates request for parole.

09.26.17 – Ms. Allred suggested the new law to Assemblywoman Krasner after O.J. Simpson’s statements before a Nevada Parole Board hearing on July 20, 2017 in which he was granted parole after serving only 9 years of a 33 year sentence. The Nevada Parole Board failed to take into account Mr. Simpson’s conviction for violence against Nicole Brown Simpson and the civil judgement finding that he was liable for Nicole’s death and the death of Ronald Goldman. A Parole Board should not be forced to engage in legal fictions and should instead be required by statutory guidelines to consider the reality of an inmate’s legal record and history when considering if the release of that inmate may create a risk that the inmate may reoffend and present a threat or danger to the community.

09.21.17 – Today Gloria Allred joined small businesses at a press conference in San Francisco to call on Governor Brown to sign into law the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act AB 569

09.21.17 – Gloria Allred joined Assembly Member David Chiu (D-San Francisco), Tyler MacNevin, owner, West of Pecos, Rebecca Griffin, NARAL Pro-Choice California and Jeannette Zanipatin, California Latinas for Reproductive Justice to announce support from a coalition of more than 300 small businesses across California of the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act (AB 569) urging Gov. Jerry Brown to sign the landmark bill into law. RHNDA, introduced by Assembly Member Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher (D-San Diego), protects workers from firing or other punishment based on their private reproductive health choices, and prohibits requiring employees to sign a code of conduct governing their reproductive choices. The bill is sponsored by NARAL Pro-Choice California and California Latinas for Reproductive Justice.

09.19.17 – Today we filed our opposition brief to defendant President Trump’s motion to dismiss the defamation case filed by our client, Summer Zervos, in New York on January 17, 2017 against Donald J. Trump for statements which we allege that he made about Ms. Zervos prior to his becoming President of the United States.

09.19.17 – Today we filed our opposition brief to defendant President Trump’s motion to dismiss the defamation case filed by our client, Summer Zervos, in New York on January 17, 2017 against Donald J. Trump for statements which we allege that he made about Ms. Zervos prior to his becoming President of the United States. Our brief argues that President Trump’s claim that a state court cannot consider a damages claim against him for unofficial conduct in which he engaged before taking office is baseless.

09.14.17 – Attorney Gloria Allred returned to court on Thursday September 14, 2017 at 8:30 a.m. PDT in Los Angeles County Superior Court Department N, in Santa Monica, CA, for a status conference hearing on Judy Huth’s lawsuit against Bill Cosby. Ms. Allred represents Judy Huth.

09.14.17 – Ms. Allred was scheduled to update the court on Cosby’s criminal case and the impact it may have on Ms. Huth’s civil case. Ms. Allred briefed the press outside the courthouse following the hearing.

09.06.17 – Today Gloria Allred held a news conference in Elmhurst Illinois with the mother and brother of murder victim Lorry Ann Borowski. Lorry Ann was the victim of a Satanic cult member, Thomas Kokoraleis, who may have raped, tortured and murdered more than 18 women and is being scheduled for release from prison on September 29, 2017 after serving only one half of his prison sentence.

09.06.17 – Lorry Ann was only 21 years old when she was kidnaped as she was opening her real estate office. The family expressed their outrage and fear that Mr. Kokoraleis may walk free after serving only 35 years of the 70 year prison sentence. Thomas Kokoraleis was one of four men who were part of a satanic cult. The group is alleged to have abducted, raped, brutally tortured, beaten and murdered or attempted to murder 18 women in DuPage County and Cook County, Illinois. Kokoraleis was tried and convicted of both the rape and murder of both Lorry Ann and Linda Sutton. However, those convictions were reversed. Facing a second trial Kokoraleis entered a plea of guilty to the murder of Lorry Ann and in return the other charges were dismissed. Lorry Ann’s family had thought there was truth in sentencing and that Kokoraleis would be in prison for 70 years. Neither of them have any memory of being consulted by prosecutors as to their feelings to a plea deal. Neither remembers anyone from law enforcement advising them that Lorry’s murderer would be able to get out of prison early after serving only half of his sentence. The question now is what if anything can be done about this murderer’s impending release. There were three other members of the Satanic cult. One was executed and the other two are still in prison.

08.21.17 – On the Anniversary of National Woman Suffrage Day Gloria Allred speaks at the launch of the new Equal Means Equal Movement to discuss future actions to pass the equal rights Amendment (ERA)

08.21.17 – The reality if that Women’s Equality is still unfinished business in the United States without ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. It is long past time the Constitution acknowledged women as equal citizens, deserving of full human and civil rights. The ERA would provide a clearer judicial standard for deciding cases of sex discrimination. Without the ERA, the Constitution does not explicitly guarantee that the rights it protects are held equally by all citizens without regard to sex.

08.18.17 – Today L.A. County Superior Court Judge Scott M. Gordon issued his decision denying Roman Polanski’s motion to dismiss his case.

08.18.17 – Today L.A. County Superior Court Judge Scott M. Gordon issued his decision denying Roman Polanski’s motion to dismiss his case.

08.15.17 – Gloria Allred held a press conference today with another woman who alleges that she was sexually victimized by film director Roman Polanski when she was a minor. Robin M. is the third woman to accuse Mr. Polanski of sexual misconduct with a minor. She is speaking out today because she was infuriated when Samantha Geimer, a victim of unlawful sexual intercourse by Mr. Polanski in 1977, spoke publicly at a hearing in the LA Superior Court earlier this year, in which she urged the judge to sentence him in absentia and to sentence him to time served. She claimed that “he has done everything he needed to do”. Robin does not agree.

08.15.17 – In 1977, Mr. Polanski was indicted by a grand jury on six counts of criminal behavior. Ultimately he agreed to enter a plea to unlawful sexual intercourse with a 13 year old child and the other charges were dismissed. Prior to his being formally sentenced, however, he fled from the United States. An international police warrant for his arrest was issued and is still outstanding. Earlier this year, a hearing was held before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon. Mr. Polanski’s lawyer and the victim in this case (Samantha Geimer) have urged the Court to sentence Mr. Polanski in absentia and to sentence him to time served. While we understand that Ms. Geimer would like this case to end, Robin and I feel that it is very important that Mr. Polanski returns to court in California to be sentenced. Any other defendant who is not rich and famous would be required to be present for a sentencing proceeding on a conviction for a felony committed against a child.

08.11.17 – Today Gloria Allred appeared outside of the Howard County 118th District Courthouse in Big Spring Texas, on behalf of her client Victim #3, to attend the sentencing of Detective Joel Rojo who has been convicted of sexually victimizing Victim #3 while investigating her allegation that she was the victim of a sex crime by someone she knew.

08.11.17 – Ms. Allred was asked to attend by Linda, who is the mother of one of the minor victims in the case of the State vs. Rojo. Linda had contacted the police in Big Spring to ask that they investigate what she believed to have been a sexual crime against her then 14 year old daughter. Big Spring Police Detective Joel Rojo was assigned to investigate the case. Linda trusted him to act professionally in the course of his investigation and to uphold what she had every right to believe would be the high standards of law enforcement as they investigated any crime, but in particular any allegation of a crime against a child. Unfortunately, however, Linda was shocked to learn later that Detective Rojo had betrayed her trust and the trust of the community of Big Spring. A jury convicted him of a crime against the child and crimes involving sexual abuse against 2 other child victims as well. For his crimes against his victims he was convicted of indecency with a child by sexual conduct, sexual performance by a child, indecency with a child by exposure and attempted indecency with a child by exposure.

08.02.17 – Gloria Allred holds press conference today in Fort Lauderdale, Florida with her client, Erica Berg, who alleges that she was drugged and raped by football Hall-of-Famer, Michael Irvin.

08.02.17 – Erica Berg is here with me today because she wants to protect future potential victims of drugging and rape and she is willing to go public today because she wants to have the State Attorney’s Office change their policy so that victims will not be afraid to come forward and have to sacrifice their rights in the way that she was forced to do.
I admire her courage and appreciate the sacrifice that she is making for victim’s rights.

07.20.17 – Today, O.J. Simpson faced the Nevada Parole Board, who was faced with deciding if Mr. Simpson should be granted parole after he was convicted of conspiracy to commit a crime, conspiracy to commit kidnapping, conspiracy to commit robbery, burglary with a deadly weapon, first-degree kidnapping with a deadly weapon, robbery with a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon, and coercion with a deadly weapon. Simpson had been sentenced to nine to thirty-three years for these crimes, and had been incarcerated for approximately nine years. In deciding if convicted felon, O.J. Simpson should be granted parole, the Board considers a number of specific aggravating and mitigating factors. Unfortunately, none of those factors allow into consideration an important part of Mr. Simpson’s prior legal history.

07.11.17 – Gloria Allred testified before the California Senate Judiciary Committee in Sacramento on July 11, 2017 in support of the bill AB 569 by California Assembly member Lorena Gonzales Fletcher. According to Assembly member Gonzales Fletcher, this bill “would ensure that employees in California cannot be retaliated against for any kind of reproductive health choices, regardless of their employer”. The bill passed the Senate Judiciary Committee and is now going to the Appropriations Committee.

07.10.17 – In response to our lawsuit Summer Zervos v. Donald J. Trump filed on January 17, 2017, late Friday night Trump’s attorney filed his 53-page Memorandum and Motion to Dismiss and Strike the Complaint. Marc Kasowitz argued Zervos’ allegations were false from the start, intended to hurt Trump’s Presidential campaign, and asserted her lawsuit now is merely an attempt to force Trump to submit to intrusive evidentiary discovery that could hurt his presidency.

06.27.17 – This morning in the Los Angeles Superior Court in Santa Monica, CA Judge Craig Karlan scheduled the trial in the Bill Cosby civil lawsuit for July 30 ,2018. Gloria Allred spoke outside the Courthouse.

06.27.17 – “This morning the Court in Santa Monica gave us a trial date in this case . The trial is now scheduled for July 30,2018 at 9:30 A.M. in Dept. N in Santa Monica. In addition. the Court asked us to return on Sept.14, 2017 on the issue of lifting the stay on discovery in our case. We had taken a deposition of Mr. Cosby in our case. Based on his deposition testimony, we then filed a motion to compel Mr. Cosby to appear for a second deposition. Mr. Cosby vigorously opposed our being able to take a second deposition of him, but we prevailed and the Court ordered him to appear for it. However, since at that point there was a criminal case pending against Mr. Cosby, the Court issued a stay and he does not have to appear for it until after the criminal case is concluded, since if he appeared prior to that, it would be likely that he would assert his 5th amendment privilege against self-incrimination. We will return to Court in this civil case on Sept. 14, 2017 at 8:30 A.M. to determine if a second criminal case has indeed been filed against Mr. Cosby and if not, if the stay on his deposition should be lifted at that time”. – Statement of Gloria Allred

06.05.17 – Attorney Gloria Allred arrives at the Montgomery County Courthouse before the opening of the sexual assault trial of Bill Cosby June 5, 2017 in Norristown, Pennsylvania. Allred tells the press she’s hopeful “there will be justice in this case”. Gloria is representing Prior Bad Acts Witness No. 6, Kelly Johnson, who is the only other Cosby sexual assault accuser allowed to testify and who will be the first witness to take the stand in the criminal trial.

05.24.17 – Having passed in both houses of the Nevada Legislature, Gloria Allred joined Governor Brian Sandoval to witness the signing of AB145 into law today.

05.24.17 – AB 145 extends the Statute of Limitations in the State of Nevada for child victims of Sexual Abuse. The bill will extend the statute of limitations for civil actions involving child sexual abuse. This means that it will lengthen the time period for adult victims of child sexual abuse to sue the perpetrators of their abuse. Ms. Allred had testified before the Nevada legislature in support of the bill and answered many questions that legislators had about it. During the signing of the bill, the Governor thanked Ms. Allred for her support.

05.12.17 – Gloria Allred’s statement regarding the upcoming hearing that was scheduled to take place May 17,2017 at the Supreme Court in the State of New York in the case of Summer Zervos v. Donald J. Trump.

05.12.17 – The May 17, 2017 hearing in this case will not take place. The hearing was scheduled because President Trump through his attorneys was seeking an extension of time to respond to our lawsuit and a bifurcation of his arguments regarding legal immunity and his motion to dismiss.

In other words, he wanted to make his legal immunity motion first, and then after that was decided, he wanted to make a separate, second motion to dismiss. After we filed our brief opposing proceeding in that manner (arguing in part that it violated the single motion rule and that it would cause undue delay) defendant President Trump agreed that he will now make his legal arguments in one motion. He has, therefore, agreed that he must be subjected to the same rule that all other New York litigants face. For that reason, there is no need to have the hearing on May 17. Another date will be set by the court in the future (perhaps in September) after briefs are filed to hear arguments on President Trump’s single motion arguing both legal immunity and that our case should be dismissed. We will vigorously oppose both of President Trump’s arguments.

04.27.17 – Today Gloria Allred held a press conference in Oceanside CA near Camp Pendleton to criticize the handling of the Marines United scandal by Congress, the U.S. Navy and the Marines. She released a copy of a letter she received from the Chair of the U.S. House of Representative Armed Services Committee. She explained why a new Navy regulation designed to deal with this disturbing scandal of broadcasting intimate and sexually explicit images without consent is not tough enough to protect female Marines. Former Marine Erika Butner and Active Duty Lance Corporal Marisa Woytek joined her to discuss their criticism of NCIS’s handing of the investigations into this scandal. U.S. Marine Commandant General Neller visited camp Pendleton today and “we want our message to be very clear”.

04.27.17 – On March 16, 2017 I hand delivered a letter to the office of the Chair of the House Armed Services Committee, Representative Mac Thornberry. In it I asked the Chairman to hold a hearing and invite victims of this scandal to testify, including my clients Marisa and Erika. His committee did hold a hearing and invited Marine Commandant General Neller to testify but victims were excluded. I have now received a response from Representative Thornberry. His response, in my opinion, is an attempt to hide from the public the true facts about how the system has failed to protect female Marines. I have also reviewed the new regulations issued by the U.S. Navy to address this issue and I believe that it is weak and should have had clearer and stronger language if the intent was to make progress and make wrongdoers accountable. Why did the Navy fail to adopt a stronger standard that could have led to more wrongdoers being disciplined? Is the new regulation just a face saving effort to repair their PR image?

04.25.17 – Gloria Allred testified today before the California Assembly Judiciary Committee in support of AB 569. This bill protects workers from discrimination based on reproductive health choices. Allred represented Teri James, a financial aid specialist at San Diego Christian College who was fired because she became pregnant while unmarried.

04.05.17 – Today Gloria Allred and two of her clients, who are victims of the Marines United Scandal, testified before members of Congress in Washington. D.C.

04.05.17 – The Democratic Working Women’s Group hosted a hearing to address the ongoing issue of nonconsensual pornography within the United States military. This issue has been most recently highlighted by the Marines United case, but it has long existed in all branches of our armed forces. Gloria and her clients, victims of the Marines United Scandal LCpl Marisa Woytek and former Marine Erika Butner, spoke to the group to explain how women Marines have been targeted, exploited and endangered by this scandal and to explain the goals of these women Marines and what progress has been made toward the accomplishment of these goals.

03.28.17 – Last night a motion was filed in the Summer Zervos case in which President Trump’s lawyer indicates he plans to argue that he is immune from civil litigation filed in state court. His lawyer argued that “the United States Constitution, including the Supremacy Clause contained therein, immunizes the President from being sued in state court while in office.” We do not believe that the President of the United States enjoys legal immunity.

03.16.17 – Gloria Allred, Congresswoman Speier, and Marines United survivor held a press conference today in Washington DC to announce bill to criminalize servicemembers sharing intimate images without consent.

03.16.17 – Congresswoman Jackie Speier (CA-14), Ranking Member on the House Armed Services Military Personnel Subcommittee, on Thursday introduced legislation to close a massive gap in the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Erika Butner, a very brave former Marine and Gloria Allred joined in support of the bill which will help to impose serious consequences on those who would engage in criminal behavior intended to denigrate, damage, and place in harm’s way our very brave female Marines. Women Marines will no longer accept being sexualized, or silenced. Many of them are daughters or sisters of male Marines. These women Marines have earned our respect and support. It is essential that we take immediate action to support them and change the law, the system and the culture to impose appropriate serious consequences on those who have betrayed their trust.

03.08.17 – United States Marines Scandal – Two female United States Marines (one active duty and one former Marine) who were victimized by having their personal photos posted without their consent on a “Marine’s United” Facebook page held a press conference today with attorney Gloria Allred in Los Angeles.

03.08.17 – A naval criminal investigation (NCIS) has been opened into web pages which often displayed naked or semi naked or clothed photos of female United States Marines who had not consented to the posting of those photos and which resulted in some cases in the female Marines being targeted with obscene and vulgar posted comments involving sexual assault or rape and comments suggesting that women should not be United States Marines or should be targeted for “friendly fire”. International Women’s Day is an appropriate time to speak out about the victimization and denigration of many female U.S. Marines and to discuss what steps are being taken and should be taken to promote respect for women who are proud U.S. Marines. We have asked for a personal meeting with U.S. Marine Commandant Robert Neller to discuss our suggestions for promoting more respect for women who are U.S. Marines. We understand the problem and we would like to be part of a constructive solution.

03.01.17 – Today in Carson City Nevada, Gloria Allred and Assemblywoman Lisa Krasner testified before the Assembly Judiciary Committee and hosted a press conference following the hearing in support of AB 145 which would extend the statute of limitations for child victims of sexual abuse.

03.01.17 – AB 145l is important because by extending the statute of limitations for civil actions on behalf of victims, it will provide access to the civil justice system to those who would otherwise be denied it. The victims will know that they now have the power in the civil justice system to help right the wrong and be active in the pursuit of justice. Instead of having the courthouse door slammed in their face because it is too late to file a case, the door to justice will remain open for more victims to seek compensation from those who are legally responsible for the harm inflicted on them when they were children.

02.18.17 – In Memory – “Jane Roe” (Norma McCorvey) dies today.

02.18.17 – Norma McCorvey was a very complicated person. When I met her she was very committed to a woman’s right to choose legal, safe , available and affordable abortions and she was very proud that. She was “Jane Roe ” in Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision which decided that a woman has a constitutional right to choose abortion at certain stages of her pregnancy. She was very disappointed and angry, however, that she was not being recognized as ” Jane Roe” by the pro-choice movement and was not being invited to be a leading voice for those who supported Roe v. Wade. Norma asked me to represent her and assist her. I agreed because I felt that she should have a voice in support of choice. Years later Norma decided to switch to the anti-choice, anti Roe v. Wade side. There she found the continuing financial support that she was seeking and needed. She also developed a religious belief that helped her to justify her new position and which gave her comfort . Even though Norma remained in favor of mandatory motherhood until the end of her life, she continued to communicate with me over the years, including recently. She always said that she loved me, appreciated the help that I provided to her and hoped to see me again either in Texas or Los Angeles. My condolences go out to her family. May Norma McCorvey rest in peace.

01.21.17 – Accusers of President Donald Trump Held a Press Conference Today With Attorney Gloria Allred At The Women’s March In Washington, D.C.

It is the time for voices to be heard. There is a time to be brave and there is a time to speak truth to power. It is the time for all of us to support brave women and men who dare to speak out and stand up to fight back. We will not be deterred. We will not be silenced.” Gloria Allred

01.17.17 – One of the accusers of Mr. Trump who alleged that he had engaged in sexually inappropriate conduct with her held a news conference today, January 17, 2017, in Los Angeles with her attorney Gloria Allred to announce the filing of a lawsuit against President Elect Trump.

01.17.17 – Today we announced that this morning we filed a defamation lawsuit on behalf of our client, Summer Zervos, against President-elect Donald Trump. The lawsuit alleges that Ms. Zervos had been subjected to unwanted sexual touching by Donald Trump and that she had told family and friends about the incidents not long after these incidents occurred. She did not go public or take any action against Mr. Trump at that time, however, because she decided that Mr. Trump’s behavior had either been an aberration, a test, or that he may even have regretted or been ashamed of his behavior. Because truth matters, prior to filing this lawsuit, on November 11, 2016 at a news conference with Ms. Zervos, I called on then President-elect Donald Trump to retract his statements that the accusers are “liars” and that their allegations are” fabrications” and” fiction”. I said then that retraction would undo some of the damage that Mr. Trump has inflicted on his accusers. Over two months have passed since I challenged Mr. Trump to retract, but he has failed to issue a retraction. Ms. Zervos is now left with only one option, that is to file a lawsuit against Mr. Trump.

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.
