Shocking Jimmy Fallon ALLEGATIONS Reported – Legal Trouble Ahead?
(ConservativeHub.com) – Big names associated with “Saturday Night Live” are facing a potential lawsuit in Pennsylvania after a Jane Doe accused alum Horatio Sanz of sexually assaulting and grooming her while she was underage. The now-adult plaintiff claims Jimmy Fallon, Tracy Morgan, and showrunner Lorne Michaels enabled Sanz’s actions. She is seeking to add them to her lawsuit in a hearing scheduled for September 8.
The unnamed woman said she and some friends regularly hung out at the “SNL” set and attended afterparties when she was a teen. On one occasion, at a place Morgan allegedly rented, she claimed Sanz forced himself on her. She also stated Fallon would drink alcohol with her despite knowing her age, and Michaels would ignore what was happening. Instead of stopping the inappropriate behavior, he allegedly gave her career advice.

Sanz’s attorney, Andrew Brettler, denied the accusations. According to a report from Vanity Fair, he said the plaintiff tried to get a settlement of $7.5 million before filing her lawsuit and claimed she’s only looking for media attention. Jane Doe’s lawyer, Susan Crumiller, explained the million-dollar deal was something the defense pushed on her client.
NBCUniversal, also named in the suit, motioned to dismiss the case, stating it had no responsibility as Sanz’s employer for his after-hours activities. But due to the amendment filed by the plaintiff, the studio will have to refile the request.
