CNN Anchor Don Lemon Retains Pierce Bainbridge Attorneys in Sexual Assault Case 5

The sexual assault charge faced by CNN primetime host Don Lemon has seen Lemon retain Caroline Polisi, a frequent TV guest, and law partner Christopher LaVigne both from Pierce Bainbridge.

The host was sued in a civil lawsuit filed in early August and involved an alleged incident at the bar in the Hamptons, claiming a sexual assault upon the plaintiff, Dustin Hice, a bar worker who also claimed Lemon had asked a ‘crude question’ about the plaintiff’s sexual preference that lead him “shocked and humiliated.”

CNN and Lemon have denied the account, saying the plaintiff bore animosity towards the network while Lemon ‘categorically denies’ the claims.

Polisi often appears on CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin and appearing on CNN Tonight alongside Lemon on occasion.

  1. ‘CNN has firmly denied that Lemon was involved in the alleged incident and said that Hice has a history of antagonizing the cable news network.

    “The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” a representative for CNN said. ‘

    I have several problems with CNN’s firm denial…

    1. Was CNN there? Did they witness anything? No! So according to logic, how can they “firmly deny” that anything happened?

    2. The assumption that someone who “previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media” could not be assaulted by Don Lemon is also logically bankrupt! For example, I may display my contempt for Trump on Facebook, but that doesn’t mean that someone who in some capacity works for Trump couldn’t come up to me and assault me!
    How many people do not have a strong dislike for CNN these days…? You certainly don’t have to be a Trump supporter to strongly dislike CNN… The network has evolved into becoming a big joke where almost its only focus is to keep issuing ‘BREAKING NEWS’ bulletins in which one tries to defame Donald Trump… It’s no secret that I dislike Trump and what he stands for, but a news network cannot be taken seriously who behaves in this manner… First of all, news should be impartial, or else what they offer is not news but rather propaganda… and that’s precisely what CNN has become… a propaganda channel! So CNN’s statement in defense of Lemon is basically just nonsense!
