The Alabama Media Group, home to AL.com, has staunchly defended itself against legal threats by Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, The Washington Post has reported.

The media company has also gone on the offensive, warning that any litigation would also reveal other important information. 

Moore's legal team has twice threatened the Alabama Media Group, according to a letter from a lawyer from the company. 

“You have accused AL.com of making ‘false reports and/or careless reporting’ about multiple subjects related to your clients,” John Thompson of Lightfoot Franklin White LLC wrote to the media group. “Your letter demands that AL.com retract and recant its prior stories and that it ‘cease and desist’ from any further reporting about your clients,” reads the letter.

Moore has also threatened to sue The Washington Post after it published an investigative article recently documenting Moore’s pursuit of a 14-year-old girl in 1979, which has led to widespread calls for him to drop out of the election. The claims of improper behavior have also caused other women to come forward with similar accusations about Moore.

Alabama Media Group vice president of content Michelle Holmes said the company would not be intimidated by the threats, and that Moore “can expect intense scrutiny by the electorate and the media on its behalf” as a candidate. Holmes said the media group vowed “to continue to doggedly pursue the truth on behalf of the people of Alabama,” AL.com reported. “These threats will not silence us, and they will not slow us."

The company also stressed that Moore has “not explained how anything that AL.com has reported is untrue, inaccurate or erroneous” and that he has not provided any evidence for his claims.
