Usher's Lawyers have clapped back at accusers who have filed a 20 million dollar lawsuit because accusers had unprotected sex which means they assumed the risks of exposure to any sexually transmitted disease.
According to Bossip this is what Usher's lawyers filed:
“With a one in six chance that any given partner could have genital herpes, plaintiff assumed the risk of contracting an STD each and every time she chose to have unprotected sex with a casual, consensual party,” Usher’s attorney Steve Sadow stated.
“To be perfectly clear, [Usher] is not asking the court to pass moral or societal judgment on plaintiff,” the documents state. “[Usher] is only seeking the correct application of the legal doctrine of assumption of risk as interpreted and construed in Georgia’s appellate decisions.”
So the question is where does the responsibility fall on a person to protect themselves or for someone to have to disclose their status?
