(CBS) — An individual at the center of the Dennis Hastert hush money case is suing the former U.S. House speaker for breach of contract.
The plaintiff, identified as James Doe in the lawsuit, says Hastert agreed to pay $3.5 million in 2010. From 2010 to 2014, the lawsuit says Hastert paid $1.7 million and the plaintiff is seeking the remaining $1.8 million.
The plaintiff has accused Hastert of sexually abusing him in a motel room while at a wrestling camp when the plaintiff was 14 and Hastert was wrestling coach at Yorkville High School. The camp was for high school students and the suit says Hastert invited the plaintiff to it even though he was not yet in high school at the time.
