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

CNN Anchor Don Lemon Retains Pierce Bainbridge Attorneys in Sexual Assault Case 3

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.
