NEW LEXINGTON – A former Perry County resident who is being sued by his granddaughter for alleged sexual assaults when she was a child has reiterated his request that the judge hearing the case order the plaintiff to stop hiding behind a fake name in her lawsuit.

Citing newspaper coverage of the case, an attorney for 71-year-old defendant Robert A. Woodrum has argued in a document submitted to Perry County Common Pleas Court on Aug. 26 that allowing Woodrum’s granddaughter to proceed with her litigation under the pseudonym “Jane Doe,” while his name is being announced to the public, is “fundamentally unfair.”
