On Wednesday, a judge denied the former reality star's motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed against him for battery by adult film star, Danica Dillon, whose real name is Ashley Stamm-Northup. "We decline to grant Duggar's motion to dismiss at this early stage of litigation where
Stamm-Northup alleges Duggar treated her roughly, caused physical injuries, and she felt 'as if she was being raped,'" Pennsylvania judge, J. Kearney, determined.
The 27-year-old will have to respond to Dillon's allegations by Jan. 20.
Duggar's motion was filed on Dec. 30 and argued that Dillon "did not provide anything more than a formulaic recitation of the elements of assault and/or battery."
"Her labels and conclusions are not adequate, particularly because she states that she consented to physical and sexual contact in exchange for payment," Josh's lawyer, Jeffrey A. Conrad, argued in the court documents.
"He threw me on the bed and, in all honesty, though it was consensual it more or less felt like I was being raped," Dillon claimed. "I never said no, I am going to have to reiterate that, I never told him no. But I did push him back and push him off and say that's too rough that's too rough."
