filed a lawsuit against Republican Senator Scott Brown
back in 2000, and it was a really weird case, according to Gawker.com
. Apparently Firth, a mortgage banker, helped Brown on his campaign in 1998, and alleged he harassed her, then sent forged letters and emails to give her a bad rap. She filed a civil defamation lawsuit about it all. Jennifer Firth (newsolio.com)
Firth alleged she quit Brown's campaign because of his "offensive" conduct, and sued him after he spread rumors about their "intimate relationship." Firth maintained that they had never had a romantic relationship.
But, here's the twist, Firth's lawyer quit the case two days before it was set to go to trial, then Firth dropped the suit altogether. Brown told newspapers that the case was withdrawn because she was the one who had been harassing him -- and someone proved it to her lawyer. Firth claimed "her lawyer told her she was unlikely to win."
