We bet David Copperfield would like to make these disappear: RadarOnline.com has the court papers a Seattle woman filed in her lawsuit against magician, who she said sexually assaulted and threatened her on his private island two years ago.
The magician’s accuser, a former Miss Washington USA contestant, is performing “extortion for money, plain and simple,” Copperfield’s attorneys said Wednesday in response to the lawsuit.
Copperfield’s accuser “has a history of lying… which continues in this lawsuit,” according to his attorneys, Angelo Calfo and Patty Eakes.
Copperfield, 52 and the woman, 22, had dinner and saw a movie on a July 2007 evening. Copperfield then, according to the lawsuit, “attacked [her] and sexually assaulted her”– even making threats to kill her if she did not comply with his sexual requests.
“Throughout the assault (the woman) physically and verbally resisted Defendant Copperfield and struggled to get away from him,” according to the lawsuit.
The woman wants an unnamed amount for emotional distress, false misrepresentation and false imprisonment; her attorneys said the suit was filed July 29, the deadline for a two-year statute of limitations on charges of such nature.
