The plaintiff, identified as Jane Doe, alleges that the incident occurred at a Manhattan rooftop bar and restaurant in August 2015.

According to the lawsuit, the assault took place in a secluded area of the Catch NYC rooftop lounge after Jane Doe and a friend approached Foxx for photographs.

As of now, Foxx's representatives have not responded to requests for comment regarding the lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages.

The legal complaint details that Foxx allegedly initiated unwanted groping and touched the woman against her will, prompting her to leave when the encounter was interrupted by her friend.
