With the addition of Thursday's new lawsuit filed against Mike Morse, Geoffrey Fieger is now seeking $42.5 million in damages for the allegedly explosive sexual assault allegations.

The first lawsuit, filed last week, is seeking $10 million. In that one, Morse is accused of grabbing a woman's breasts after promoting himself "as a famous person who she would like to have a picture with." The alleged victim is seeking $10 million in damages.

After the allegation, Morse said, “This lawsuit is a bogus, manufactured lawsuit, in an attempt to extort money from me by the Fieger Law Firm."

The second lawsuit seeks $15 million and claims Samantha Lichon was harassed throughout the course of her career at the Mike Morse Law Firm.

Lichon claims she was the victim of harassment that included unwelcome comments and conduct of an offensive and sexual nature. She allegedly lived in Hazel Park at the time.

There are also allegations that the plaintiff was physically touched without permission, and claims that Morse groped her breasts on multiple occasions. She is seeking $15 million in damages.

Morse responded, saying, "The individual was employed as a receptionist for about 18 months until she was terminated for cause on April 7, 2017.  She never made a complaint during the time she was employed at my firm.

I employ approximately 145 people, about half of whom are women. I have been in business for two decades and I have never been sued. I am not going to continue to participate in Mr. Fieger’s media circus, or his bid to attract more attention to himself and encourage baseless lawsuits.  These matters will be handled in Court."

The third lawsuit, filed on Thursday, seeks $17.5 million in damages and claims Morse sexually assaulted a woman in the back of a car in Miami.

When they got in the car, the lawsuit alleges Morse got into the backseat with the woman and "without any permission, inducement, or any other invitation whatsoever, stuck his hands into Jane Doe's shirt and grabbed both of her breasts."
