Breitbart News reports that an unidentified woman, who is accusing Horatio Sanz — the Saturday Night Live (SNL) cast member — of sexual assault, is now also claiming that Jimmy Fallon and others enabled the situation by creating a predatory environment.
The woman filed a sexual assault lawsuit against Sanz in 2021. Now, she has filed legal documents in an attempt to join Jimmy Fallon, Tracy Morgan, and Lorne Michaels in the lawsuit.
Few details about the woman are known other than that she is from Pennsylvania and somewhere around 40 years old.
Otherwise, the unidentified woman claims that the incident occurred when she was 17 years old, some twenty years ago, when she was invited to SNL by Sanz and Fallon after starting a fan website for the show.
The original allegation is that Sans sexually assaulted the woman, and the latest allegation is that Fallon, Morgan, and Michaels enabled the situation.
The lawsuit states that these individuals enabled a predatory environment by having teenage girls attend parties with SNL members following broadcasts. The woman alleges that SNL and NBC not only knew about these parties but knew that alcohol was being served to teenage girls at the parties.
According to the lawsuit, the alleged sexual assault of the woman by Sanz occurred in 2022, in front of witnesses. But, specifics are not being reported.
Susan Crumiller, the woman’s attorney, has put out a statement, saying:
Sanz and his enablers lured Jane [Doe] into their celebrity world and made her feel like a cool kid for drinking and partying with a bunch of famous grown-ups. Instead, they destroyed her life. Jane has spent the past two decades struggling with the repercussions of what they did to her; now it’s their turn. We look forward to holding NBC, Sanz, and everyone else who enabled this disgusting behavior accountable when the GMVA lookback window opens in March.
Sanz, through his attorney, has called the allegations against him “categorically false.”
On top of this, he claims that, before the woman filed the lawsuit against him, she demanded $7.5 million from Sanz in hush money. Sanz, obviously, refused.
Statements on the matter have not been provided by Fallon, Morgan, or Michaels.
NBC, though, has responded to the woman’s latest legal filing, stating, “regardless of Jane Doe’s changing narratives, NBC intends to renew its motion to dismiss.”
