Gloria Allred to File Counterclaim Against Former Lawyer of John Travolta's Accusers


Gloria Allred


Denying claim that she steals clients in the Travolta sexual battery litigation, Allred prepares 'a counterclaim for defamation' in response to the lawsuit filed by Okorie Okorocha.

The drama in John Travolta sexual harassment case continues by taking a new bizarre twist. Instead of focusing on the battle between the actor and his accusers, it turns into a legal feud between the John Does' new lawyer, Gloria Allred, and their former attorney, Okorie Okorocha.

Allred, who was previously accused by Okorocha of allegedly attempting to steal his clients, has been sued for "intentional interference with contractual relations, intentional interference with prospective economic relations and unfair business practices." The 70-year-old lawyer then fires back by planning to file a counterclaim.

"Mr. Okorocha's lawsuit will be met with a counterclaim for defamation," so she issued a statement. "The facts are the facts. Doe No. 1 and Doe No. 2 contacted me seeking representation, and we have the evidence to prove it. Mr. Okorocha's lawsuit will be dismissed, and we will ultimately recover a judgment against him."

Okorocha filed the paperworks on Monday, May 21 in Los Angeles Superior Court. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he is seeking unspecified compensation and non-economic damages for "emotional distress."
