According to newly-obtained court documents, Julie Swetnick, a woman who has made questionable and unsubstantiated accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, was sued for defamation and domestic violence.
Swetnick, who alleges Kavanaugh was present at “rape parties” without evidence, was apparently sued in 2000 by a company, Webtrends Corporation, and was sued the following year for domestic violence.
Additionally, Swetnick reportedly was found to have multiple tax liens imposed at the federal and state level, and is reported to have sued the state of Maryland several times.
Michael Avenatti, lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels and anti-Trump activist is representing Swetnick.
