Attorney Geoffrey Fieger has filed a third sexual assault lawsuit against Attorney Mike Morse, just one day after he filed a second sexual assault lawsuit.

According to Fieger, the lawsuit was filed in Oakland County Circuit Court and claims Morse sexually assaulted the woman inside a car in Miami. Fieger said witnesses saw the assault happened. He's seeking $17.5 million in this lawsuit.

According to the latest lawsuit, the victim traveled to Miami with a group of friends on Dec. 30 and on her first night, Morse, who was a friend of someone in the group, met up with them at a bar.

At the bar, the lawsuit states that Morse "made various sexual remarks" aimed at the victim. The group also planned to drop Morse off after leaving the restaurant.

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."

After the assault, Morse allegedly asked the victim to come back to this hotel room, but she rejected and Morse became visibly upset. He also allegedly attempted to contact her via Snapchat in March 2017.

In the first lawsuit, Morse is also 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 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."
