Sexual Assault Civil Charges[edit]

On July 23, 2013, a Federal Court Judgment was entered against Clifton Powell for sexual assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.[3][4] The Court awarded Plaintiff $153,095.50 on August 28, 2013 for damages she suffered on August 28, 2011,[5] exactly two years from the date of the attack. Mr. Powell initially responded publicly to the allegations by denying same.[6] But the actor failed to answer the allegations of sexual assault and battery contained in a Federal Court petition filed in New Orleans, Louisiana. According to the Judgment, the actor is liable for physical and emotional damages caused to the victim.[7] The Louisiana judgment was recorded in the actor's home state of California on October 15, 2013. According to Plaintiff's attorney, several attempts to collect the debt from the actor have been unsuccessful, so the Judgment was recorded in California as a first step toward garnishing the actor's wages and seizing property to satisfy the debt owed to the Plaintiff.[8]
