Judge rules all three of Usher’s herpes exposures lawsuits will be heard in LA…
From ‘NBC Los Angeles‘:
The claims of all three plaintiffs in a lawsuit alleging Usher is responsible for their herpes diagnoses will be heard in Los Angeles Superior Court, a judge ruled Friday in denying a defense motion to force one of the plaintiffs to bring her case in another state.
Judge Michelle Williams Court said that because the R&B singer has a residence in California, he is subject to having the woman’s claims heard against him in this state.
Jane Doe and the other two plaintiffs sued Usher, now 39, in August 2017, alleging the singer failed to disclose that he has genital herpes before having sex with them. Their complaint alleges sexual battery, fraud, negligence and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
One of the plaintiffs, Quantasia Sharpton, has agreed to have her name placed in the court papers. The other, a male, is identified only as John Doe.
