Testimony begins in the dueling defamation suits over Roy Moore molestation claims


Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, right, and his attorney Julian McPhillips, left, leave the courtroom in Montgomery, Ala., on Monday following jury selection. Moore and Leigh Corfman, who accused him of sexual assault, are suing each other for defamation.

The allegations overshadowed Moore’s 2017 campaign as he fell in a stunning defeat to Doug Jones, the first Alabama Democrat elected to the Senate in 25 years.
