Before Gloria Allred begins to battle John Travolta and Marty Singer in court on behalf of her masseur clients, she's got to clear her own name.
The famed attorney has filed legal documents to dismiss a lawsuit from her clients' former lawyer, Okoria Okorocha, who is suing because he thinks Gloria stole John Doe #2, a.k.a. John "Casey" Truesdale.
She filed the motion on Tuesday and hopes that sworn declarations from herself and the client she allegedly stole will be enough for a judge to dismiss Okorocha's case. A source defending Allred told sources:
"Allred absolutely didn't solicit Truesdale as a client and has the evidence to prove it never happened. First of all, Okorocha filed the lawsuit against John Travolta on behalf of two then anonymous men, so how did she get Truesdale's information to contact him, it makes absolutely no sense. It will be very clear that Allred never approached Truesdale first, it just didn't happen that way, and it's not how she has ever conducted her law practice."
We hope this dispute gets cleared up pretty quickly because it's kind of like a bad opening act at a concert that we don't really want to see.
What we REALLY want to see is what happens between Mz. Allred and Mr. Singer!
