Roy Moore sues Sacha Baron Cohen, Showtime for defamation

Moore's wife, Kayla, also is a plaintiff in the lawsuit, which also accuses the defendants of fraud and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Moore was accused of sexual misconduct during his campaign for the Alabama Senate a year ago. He denied the allegations.

Larry Klayman, a conservative lawyer representing Moore, in a statement called his client "a man of great faith, morality and intellect", and said the defendants will be held legally accountable for Baron Cohen's conduct.

Klayman said Moore "was falsely led by Cohen to believe that he would be interviewed and receive an award for his staunch support of Israel". They are asking for relief in excess of $95 million dollars, not including attorneys' fees. When he uses it on Moore, the wand beeps.

In the July episode, Cohen, disguised as the fake "Erran Morad", uses a metal detector that he claims "is used in schools and playgrounds" to detect pedophiles.
