I demand CNN terminate his contract. Because as we all were told one other time, all that matters is the seriousness of the charge........

Sure I think we are too litigious today

But let’s say someone comes up to you, rubs their hands in their genitals, then shoved their fingers in your face while making sexual comments

What would you do?

If you hit the guy, you’ll end up in jail

So what other recourse do you have? Should we all just allow people to do this without recourse?

I don’t know the answer, but I don’t think suing in this case is a bad idea

We aren’t talking about kids pulling pranks here; this is a grown man


I would hit the guy and take my chances

After President Trump is re-elected, I hope the Department of Justice labels CNN and MSNBC officially as enemies of the people.

For sure, some problems are better dealt with that way.

Yeah apparently it's the end of the #-ing world that I only read the OP, not the link, then admitted it.

Sad little men are grasping onto this and sensationalizing it because "reasons".

You misunderstand. I was appreciative that you were being honest. As a woman who arrived here on ATS years ago, I had found myself embarrassed by responding before checking actual links. I do understand and it takes courage to admit such.

Recently it is difficult to believe sometimes someone has actually read the same things I am and come away with the totally opposite view. I do try to be fair, but in the case of this thread, it is was extremely obvious a sexual innuendo based on Lemon's known sexual preference. Now, is this biased? Possibly.

The problem is that society can not separate special privileges every time it does not suit their benefit. Lemon in this case would be seen as a female sexually assaulting a man, just as a lesbian doing such to me, would be just as sexually offensive as if a man did so.

Edit add: Even good natured butt hand jokes are limited between really close friends or family! Anyone else will have a bloody nose from my fist before they could even get it close enough for a whiff! Eww.

I'm surprised he's been "Teflon Don" for so long.

In my experience, general people are the ones to avoid...

Seems fishy to me...all bars have cameras...wonder how long the accuser waiter to bri ng this up..Just because Lemon is an arrogant person does not mean this incident is true...had to be witnesses...not a liberal sympathizer...I take these stories with a grain of salt as I would a women making such claims..

They probably fought quietly for a settlement before filing, which would explain the delay. Lemon probably prefers a trial to what would essentially be "hush money" even if he's guilty. Obviously asking for too much, or this would have gone away regardless of whether Lemon did it or not.

He names two witnesses (one remaining anonymous until discovery phase). He says the story became common knowledge in the Hamptons, and he was asked about it by strangers. If he can prove that, and bring more witnesses, that would help.

I don't think he's going to recover much even if he wins. Civil court rarely awards punitive damage. It just exists to make you whole. He has to prove damages. He claims he lost wages because he was so distraught over the incident and public comments to him about it. Good luck showing that. A couple thousand dollars and legal fees possibly -- IF he can convince a jury that he was actually damaged. It's probably worth it to fight and continue to profess innocence in Lemon's eyes.

People just making things up typically don't have two witnesses lined up. But doesn't mean it happened necessarily. Certainly doesn't mean he'll see a bunch of money.

It would have settled already, imo, if they were close. They've probably been back and forth between lawyers for months. This allegedly happened last summer.
