JEROME CORSI ("Plaintiff' or "Corsi") hereby files this action against ROGER STONE ("Defendant Stone") for Defamation, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress and Assault JURISDICTION AND VENUE 1. This Court has diversity jurisdiction over this case pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1332, as the parties are completely diverse in citizenship and the amount in controversy exceeds $75,000. 2. Venue is proper pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b)(2), (3) in that a substantial part of the events or omissions giving rise to Plaintiff Corsi's claims arose herein. THE PARTIES 3.

Defendant Stone was recently indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller ("Mueller Indictment") as part of his "Russian Collusion" investigation for the alleged crimes of perjury, witness tampering and obstruction of justice.

Importantly, Plaintiff Corsi was not accused of any wrongdoing or illegality in the Mueller Indictment, in which he named as Person 1, a material witness to the alleged crimes committed by Stone. 6. Specifically, the seven count Mueller Indictment against Defendant Stone involves alleged lying under oath - that is, perjury - witness tampering and obstruction of justice by threatening to kill a material witness, Randy Credico ("Credico") and his dog if Credico did not lie to government authorities concerning his involvement with Roger Stone. Credico is Person 2 in the Mueller Indictment of Defendant Stone. Id. Person 1 in this Mueller Indictment is Plaintiff Corsi. 7. Even before Defendant Stone was indicted, he began a public relations campaign in this district, nationally and internationally to smear, intimidate and threaten Plaintiff Corsi, a material witness in the "Russian Collusion" investigation. Plaintiff Corsi is listed as Person 1 in the Mueller Indictment and was not indicted along with Defendant Stone, as he testified truthfully to the grand jury and in interviews. 8. 9. To the contrary, Plaintiff Corsi has never defamed or disparaged Defendant Stone. Defendant Stone knew that he was going to be indicted, and therefore began this GENERAL ALLEGATIONS 2
