CNN Host Sued For Sex Assault In Gay Bar

FOX NEWS – The attorney for the man who accused fellow CNN host Don Lemon of a sexually charged assault expects the case to finally end up in court early next year after a prolonged legal process.

It’s been over two years since Dustin Hice filed an explosive lawsuit against Lemon – who is openly gay.

Hice accuses the “CNN Tonight” host of assault and battery at a bar on New York’s Long Island during the summer of 2018.

According to the lawsuit, filed Aug. 11, 2019 in Suffolk County Court.

“[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,”

“Hice told Fox News the alleged ‘vile, disgusting, lewd and inhumane’ attack by Lemon would be treated much differently if Hice were a woman.”

“While saying this, Mr. Lemon continued to shove his fingers into Plaintiff’s face with aggression and hostility.” 

In an answer to the complaint, Lemon denied all wrongdoing and called the suit “frivolous.”
