Attorney for Haymarket Whiskey Bar owner presses alleged victim for details about sexual encounters, by Jason Riley (WDRB)
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An attorney for Haymarket Whiskey Bar owner Matthew Landan has subpoenaed a woman who claimed she was sexually assaulted by Landan to provide the date and time of each instance she had sex with Landan and identify anyone else present.
As part of seeking evidence in Landan's defamation lawsuit against women who accused him of rape and sexual assault on Facebook, attorney Andrew Horne has filed a request in Jefferson Circuit Court for information from the initial accuser.
Horne has identified the woman he believes initially posted a picture of Landan on Facebook on Nov. 13, saying, "Matthew Landan is a rapist" and accused him of raping her. She has been subpoenaed to provide the information within 45 days.
Landan: "I have never sexually assaulted anyone, regardless of where they made their claims."
A precipitous decline: "Haymarket owner says former employees exaggerated the number of his rape accusers."
