Judge dismisses suit by Alabama woman claiming Trump forcibly kissed her

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit from an Alabama woman who claimed President Donald Trump kissed her against her will while she worked for his campaign.

Alva Johnson claimed then-candidate Trump “forcibly kissed” her during a 2016 campaign stop in Tampa, Florida. Johnson, who served as Trump’s director of outreach to coalitions for Alabama, also claimed the campaign engaged in pay discrimination against female and African-American employees.

U.S. District Court Judge William Jung said Johnson’s complaint centered too much on political attacks, according to a report in Politico.

“As currently stated, the Complaint presents a political lawsuit, not a tort and wages lawsuit,” Jung wrote. “Plaintiff will receive a fair day in court, but the Court will try a tort and wages dispute—not a political one. If Plaintiff wishes to make a political statement or bring a claim for political purposes, this is not the forum.”
