Legal Claim Alleges 1993 Sexual Assault by NYC Mayor Eric Adams

A legal document filed on Wednesday accuses New York City Mayor Eric Adams of sexually assaulting a woman back in 1993. This accusation is part of a summons which also lists the transit bureau of the New York Police Department and the New York Police Department Guardians Association as co-defendants.

The summons, a three-page document, does not provide specific details about the alleged incident but asserts that the plaintiff was sexually assaulted by Adams in New York City during their concurrent employment with the city.

This legal action seeks a trial and demands $5 million in damages. The summons was filed at the state Supreme Court in Manhattan.

Responding to these allegations, a spokesperson from City Hall stated that Mayor Adams does not recognize the accuser. While he may not remember meeting them, the Mayor adamantly denies any wrongdoing and maintains he would never harm another individual.

This summons is filed under the Adult Survivors Act, a law in New York that allows for a new series of lawsuits against high-profile individuals accused of sexual misconduct.

Before his mayoral tenure, Adams, a member of the Democratic Party, served in the New York City Police Department, reaching the rank of captain. His political career includes roles as a state senator and the Brooklyn borough president prior to his election as mayor.

its strange to see such old cases resurface, but I guess that’s what the Adult Survivors Act is for, right? Giving ppl a chance to seek justice…
