CNN primetime anchor Don Lemon has hired frequent CNN guest and criminal defense attorney, Caroline Polisi, to represent his interests in his assault and battery case. Polisi regularly appears as a commentator on CNN, often being on CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin and appearing on CNN Tonight alongside Lemon on occasion.
Law&Crime, who first reported the news he had retained Polisi, also noted that her partner, Christopher LaVigne, will be Lemon’s attorneys of record in regards to the civil case filed by Dustin Hice.
Hice is alleging the CNN anchor “put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers in Plaintiff’s moustache and under Plaintiff’s nose.”
Lemon “categorically denies” the claims alleged.
