Update: Mike Morse says Fieger's sex assault lawsuit is nonsense, claims vendetta
Update: See Mike Morse's response to assault allegations
Prominent metro Detroit attorney Geoffrey Fieger has filed a multi-million dollar sexual assault lawsuit against fellow well-known attorney Mike Morse. The civil lawsuit claims Morse molested a woman in the back of Steven Lelli’s Inn on the Green restaurant, which is also named as a defendant.
"(Morse) promoted himself as a famous person who she would like to have a picture with," Fieger said at a press conference today. "And that was the guise under which he brought her to a room or an area of the restaurant when he encouraged her to take a selfie; and at that point, as the complaint alleges, began the sexual molestation.”
The lawsuit says Morse then grabbed the woman's breasts.
Morse did respond and adamantly denied the allegations.
According to Fieger's office, the lawsuit said the victim filed a complaint with the Farmington Hills Police Department and also wore a wire and recorded Morse admitting the actives that are alleged.
The police department says they do not comment on open investigations, and will neither confirm nor deny that there is an open investigation.
