Josh Duggar has filed a motion to dismiss Danica Dillon's lawsuit against him, claiming that there's no evidence of wrongdoing, whatsoever.
The disgraced Duggar doesn't deny Danica's claims that they engaged in rough sex in hotel rooms a couple of times early last year.
However, he disputes Danica's allegations of sexual assault or that he intentionally inflicted emotional distress during their encounters.
Duggar’s lawyer Jeffrey A. Conrad said simply that “the Plaintiff has not alleged that Defendant attempted by force to do injury to her.”
Danica's lawsuit hinges on Josh wanting to abuse her, then following through on that nefarious plan - one his camp adamantly denies.
“Assault requires intent to place Plaintiff in imminent apprehension of harmful or offensive contract," he says in response to the suits.
Rather, in her lawsuit, Danica Dillon "did not provide anything more than a formulaic recitation of the elements of assault and/or battery.”
The attorney then zinged Danica - who says Josh Duggar manhandled her in bed and verbally abused her - and her admission of prostitution:
“Her labels and conclusions are not adequate, particularly because she states that she consented to physical and sexual contact [for money].”
It was one night in Philadelphia following her March 2015 strip club appearance that Dillon first boned Josh, and says it was horrible.
“Plaintiff felt as if she were being raped by the Defendant,” her attorney wrote in court documents ahead of a January 21 pretrial hearing.
Dillon first came forward in August, after Josh was outed as an Ashley Madison user and subsequently admitted his addiction to porn.
Not only did he mess around online, Josh confessed to cheating on wife Anna Duggar (he has not confirmed he did so with Dillon).
He has been in a Christian-based rehab center in Illinois ever since the scandal broke, though rumors say he may have secretly left.
As for reports of Josh headed to prison for hurting Danica, that speculation is a bit of a reach at best, given that this is a civil complaint.
Stay tuned, though. After the year Josh and the rest of the Duggars just had, we would not be surprised by a whole lot else at this point.
Oh, and despite all he's put her through, the long-suffering Anna Duggar appears poised to reconcile with Josh, if she hasn't already. Sigh.
