Andrew Napolitano is a renowned figure in the law field. With over 35 years of experience, he comments on legal news and trials for Fox News as a judicial analyst. Previously, he served as a Superior Court judge for New Jersey. He was the first youngest judge to take the role from 1987 to 1995. 

Napolitano has dedicated most of his life in front of the camera, making legal decisions and commentaries. Despite being a public figure, he has kept his personal life under wraps, often letting followers to wonder if he is gay. And the gay rumors only got fueled when two males alleged him of assaulting them. 

Lawsuit Fueled the Gay Rumors

Napolitano's gay rumors — that apparently started because of the absence of a wife-figure in his life — got fueled when two men sued him for assault. 

On September 11, 2020, one of the alleged victims, Charles Corbishley, filed a case, accusing Napolitano of forced abuse. The event allegedly took place in 1987 when he met Napolitano in the courtroom. The then-20-year-old was facing three counts. 

As per the report, Corbishley was lured into believing his sentencing would be minimized if he served Napolitano. So he went to his home with a snow shovel to shovel the driveway, as told by defense attorney Robert Hollis, and allegedly got abused by Napolitano. 

After the incident, he was reportedly given a “remarkably lenient sentence” compared to his co-defenders. He was sentenced to five years' probation and 150 hours of community service.

When the news of Corbishley's case became public, another alleged victim, James Kruzelnick, sued Napolitano on September 28, 2020. He alleged that the Fox News analyst stalked him between 2014 and 2017 and coerced him to do strange acts. 

Kruzelnick stated he worked as a waiter at a popular steakhouse in New Jersey when Napolitano noticed him. He alleged that the 71-year-old had an “infatuation” with him and groped him in the bathroom. He also detailed that Napolitano allegedly partnered with the steakhouse's owner and made Kruzelnick serve him. 

Kruzelnick mentioned he did not raise his voice because he was afraid to lose his job. 

While the two alleged victims detailed their accounts, the Princeton graduate denied all claims of assault. His lawyer Tom Clare told Business Insider that the allegations were fictitious and an attempt to smear Napolitano for money. 

Kruzelnick was seeking $15 million while Corbishley was seeking $10 million in damages from the former judge, which could put a dent in his net worth.
