Jamie Foxx, famous American actor, is currently targeted by a sexual assault lawsuit filed in the Supreme Court of the State of New York. This case, revealed on November 22, involves alleged incidents dating back to August 2015. The actor, known for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s film Django Unchained, is accused of having behaved inappropriately towards a woman during a party on the rooftop terrace of Catch NYC & Roof, a bar restaurant in Manhattan.
The complainant, wishing to remain anonymous, claims that Foxx would have made inappropriate gestures towards her, including non-consensual contact. Furthermore, Mark Birnbaum, the owner of the venue, is also mentioned in the complaint.
This case is part of a series of similar complaints involving personalities such as Sean Combs (Puff Daddy) and Axl Rose, filed under the Adult Survivors Act. This New York law, expiring on Thanksgiving Day, allows victims of sexual violence to file complaints for previously prescribed facts.
In May, another notable case involved former US President Donald Trump, accused by former columnist E. Jean Carroll of sexual assault in 1996, and ordered to pay her damages.
This series of complaints underscores the importance of the Adult Survivors Act in the fight against sexual assault, allowing victims to find a form of justice even years after the facts.
