Russell Simmons to Face Rape Accuser



Last month Russell Simmons filed a motion asking that a civil lawsuit accusing him of sexual assault be tossed out.  The judge rules against Russ.  On December 5, a Los Angeles judge ordered the lawsuit accusing Simmons of rape can continue on, despite the mogul’s attempts to have the case dismissed.  The judge has ordered Simmons to answer the allegations in the complaint within 20 days.  The order notes that Simmons’ argument that his accuser did not give a specific date of the alleged incident is irrelevant since “the elements of the three claims (forcible rape, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress) do not require a date of the incident.”  A hearing has been set for next month.
