Former judge Roy Moore, whose senatorial bid was derailed amid allegations of sexual misconduct with minors, took on Sacha Baron Cohen with a $95 million lawsuit filed this week.

During a segment of Cohen’s Showtime series, one of the comedian’s invented personas demonstrated a supposed “pedophile detector,” which beeped wildly when in the vicinity of his guest.

According to the suit, Moore claims the “false and fraudulent portrayal” has “severely harmed” his reputation and “caused him, Mrs. Moore, and his entire family severe emotional distress, as well as caused and will cause Plaintiffs financial damage.”
