On Tuesday, a woman accusing President-elect Donald Trump of sexually inappropriate conduct is planning to file a lawsuit against him, the Daily Beast reports.

The publication reports that news of the lawsuit comes from celebrity attorney Gloria Allred. Few other details are currently available. A press conference with Allred and the accuser will be held in Los Angeles at 11:30am PT today.

After the Washington Post released a 2005 tape during the presidential campaign in which Trump bragged about how his fame allowed him to sexually assault women and “grab them by the pussy” without consent, multiple women came forward to accuse then-candidate Trump of inappropriately kissing, touching, or looking at them. 

More than a dozen women have spoken out about or have had their allegations documented regarding Trump’s behavior. Trump has denied all claims of sexual misconduct against him. Trump’s transition team spokeswoman Hope Hicks did not immediately respond a request for comment.
