Mayor Adams denies sexual assault allegations from 30 years ago after being named in lawsuit

Mayor Eric Adams flatly denied allegations in a lawsuit filed Wednesday accusing him of sexually assaulting a woman back in in 1993.

The three-page filing does not contain details of the alleged assault but names Adams, the transit bureau of the New York Police Department, and the New York Police Department Guardians Association as defendants.

“Plaintiff was sexually assaulted by Defendant Eric Adams in New York, New York in 1993 while they both worked for the City of New York,” the summons reads.

The filing seeks a trial and $5 million in relief. It was filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan. The woman’s attorney did not immediately return an emailed request for comment on Thursday.
