New York City Mayor Eric Adams Accused of Sexual Assault in 1993 – A court filing submitted late Wednesday accuses New York City Mayor Eric Adams of sexual assault. The summons against Adams alleges that the plaintiff “was sexually assaulted by Defendant Eric Adams in New York, New York in 1993 while they both worked for the City of New York”.
Under the Adult Survivors Act, a New York state law allowing a one-year “look-back” window, adult sexual misconduct accusers can file civil lawsuits that were previously barred by the statute of limitations. This window closes on November 24. The summons adds that the concerns “sexual assault, battery and employment discrimination on the basis of Plaintiff’s gender and sex, retaliation, hostile work environment and intentional infliction of emotional distress”.

Asked about the allegation, a city hall spokesperson said: “The mayor does not know who this person is. If they ever met, he doesn’t recall it.” The alleged sexual assault is not detailed in the three-page summons. The summons also lists the New York City Police Department’s transit bureau and the New York City Police Department Guardians Association social organization as defendants.
The accuser’s attorney, Megan Goddard, said: “Goddard Law is thankful for the Adult Survivors Act, which has given so many women the opportunity to seek justice. We are immensely proud of our clients and all the women who are seeking justice under the ASA. We are also thankful that the legislature may be considering reopening the window because so many victims of sexual assault are only finding out about the ASA now.”
Amid scrutiny from the FBI investigating his campaign, Mayor Eric Adams, elected in 2021, receives the summons. The inquiry centers on whether Adams’ campaign accepted money from the Turkish government, allegedly in exchange for favors, such as influencing the New York City fire department to expedite the opening of a Turkish consulate.
