Continuing the saga from 2021, the same accuser of Horatio Sanz has now included other SNL alumni in suit for enabling the former cast member.
Allegations fired at former SNL member Horatio Sanz that accused the performer of grooming the unnamed defendant online, and trying to ‘digitally penetrate’ her have resurfaced today with Jane Doe levying accusations against other SNL cast mates in the ongoing lawsuit, including Jimmy Fallon, Tracy Morgan, and Lorne Michaels by name as “enablers,” Deadline reports.
The newly submitted document obtained by Deadline, contains an alleged quote from actor Tracy Morgan that contains harsh subject matter. The document also contains primary source handwritten records of each show she had attended, complete with who hosted each evening, and who had accompanied her to the events. The scathing document alleges:
In 2002, Tracy Morgan hosted a notorious “after-after-party” where hired sex workers were part of the entertainment. However, another unwitting part of the entertainment was 17-year-old Jane. At this party, cast member Horatio Sanz groped Jane’s breasts and buttocks and rubbed her vagina, in full view of party onlookers, continuing the assault even as she implored him to stop. Jane not only felt sexually humiliated and degraded, but her lifelong career aspirations of working at SNL ground to a halt – as the entire SNL cast watched and her idols, Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch, laughed at her.– New York County Clerk Index No. 951302/2021
What the refiled allegations suggest is that there are witnesses to Jane Doe’s accusations against SNL member Horatio Sanz, as well as a degree of culpability by the party holders for allowing the behaviour to go unchecked.
It’s important to note, everything regarding this court case so far have yet to reach a conclusion or verdict. Sanz’s lawyer maintained back in 2020 the allegations are “categorically false,” and NBC said it was not responsible for Sanz’s “after-hours” behaviour and motioned to be dismissed from the lawsuit. As the legal battle continues, more information will be excavated regarding this serious issue.
