Brett Ratner Accuser You're Suing Me for Defamation To Intimidate Other Victims

Brett Ratner Accuser You're Suing Me for Defamation To Intimidate Other Victims

She says more famous women than her have publicly accused him of sexual misconduct, and she believes he's going after a lesser-known accuser to send a message to other accusers who are thinking of coming forward.

In the court documents, Kohler accuses Ratner - who she describes as a "powerful, well-known Hollywood director and producer" - of filing the lawsuit with a single objective: "to silence and intimidate Ms. Kohler-and other women like her-from coming forward with stories of grave sexual mistreatment at his hands".

Kohler's attorneys also argued the suit should be dismissed under California's anti-SLAPP statute which limits lawsuits meant to chill public speech.

Kohler's lawyers contend that Ratner's suit consisted of little more than "threadbare, conclusory allegations" which fail to meet the minimum requirements for a libel complaint, variety.com reports.

"Without explanation, the Complaint quotes only a small fraction of Ms. Kohler's FB Post".

Sanchez future uncertain as United, City circle
In 2011, Sir Alex Ferguson was led to believe that Nasri would join United. Arsenal could lose both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil by season's end.

In court documents, Kohler's attorneys argue that Ratner's claim that her Facebook post was "false, fabricated and fictional" and meant to harm his reputation "alleges zero facts suggesting why Ms. Kohler would have been motivated to lie about Mr. Ratner raping her".

Kohler said in the Facebook post that Ratner forced himself on her while she was drunk in 2004 or 2005, when she lived in Los Angeles.

"I was scared", Kohler told The Times in a late-October interview, "so I took it down".

Hours after The Times' article was published November 1, Kohler was sued in U.S. District Court in Hawaii.

Singer did not respond immediately Wednesday to a request for comment on the new filing.
