Virginia’s Lt. Governor, Justin Fairfax, files lawsuit against CBS for $400 million dollars

Annandale, VA (WVVA) – Virginia’s Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax is calling to account a major corporation with the filing of today’s lawsuit against CBS for $400 million dollars. The complaint alleges that CBS had access to information indicating that the accusations made against Fairfax were false

The complaint also addresses allegations of sexual assault based on a 15-year-old encounter. Fairfax voluntarily took and passed two polygraph tests with regard to each of the allegations. CBS News aired interviews with two women who accused Fairfax of sexually assaulting them. CBS News anchor Gayle King interviewed both Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson earlier this year.

The lawsuit is filed in federal court in the Eastern District of Virginia. It says Fairfax’s character was defamed and says CBS intentionally inflicted emotional distress on him. CBS did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
