UPDATED 7:30pm, June 1, 2015
Kristen Vander-Plas' attorney, Kevin Glasheen, has released the following statement in response to the filing:
"Kristen has been the victim of sexual assault committed by Don May on at least two occasions. She chose not to file a police report at the time it happened, in part to maintain her privacy. Her assailant has now sued her, alleging that he is the victim because she has complained about the sexual assaults. Don May is now using this lawsuit and the media to bring unwanted attention to the victim of his assault. We ask for people, particularly the media to respect Kristen's privacy."
Former candidate for Congress, Dr. Donald May (pictured), is pursuing legal action against two people that he is alleging slandered him.
According to the filing made in the 99th District Court, Dr. May is asking the court to allow his legal counsel to conduct depositions with four people for the purpose of determining whether or not Kristen Vander-Plas and Kevin Lyle Vander-Plas falsely stated that May sexually harassed Kristen Vander-Plas.
Dr. May's attorney, Fernando Bustos released the following statement to KFYO News, "Dr. May categorically denies any such allegations, and looks forward to obtaining truth and justice as soon as possible."
Judge Bill Sowder of the 99th District Court will hold a hearing on June 26.
KFYO News is currently working to obtain a response to the filing from Kristen Vander-Plas, or from an attorney representing her.
