Another alleged victim of a prominent Quebec businessman accused of exploiting minors and young adults for sex has filed a lawsuit against him.

Montreal-based law firm CaLex filed an $8-million lawsuit Wednesday naming Robert Miller, the company he founded – Future Electronics – two vice-presidents with the firm, and a downtown Montreal hotel where some sexual encounters allegedly took place.

The complainant, identified by the initials A.B., says she was a victim of Miller for nearly 20 years and became dependent on the money and luxury allegedly provided to her by the wealthy businessman.

The lawsuit claims A.B. was a minor from a low-income immigrant family when she was recruited to have sexual relations with Miller in 2001.

Miller stepped down as chairman and CEO of Future Electronics in February to focus on protecting his reputation amid allegations he allegedly gave young women, including some minors, cash and gifts in exchange for sex between 1994 and 2006.

He has vehemently denied the allegations, which have not been tested in court.

In February, Consumer Law Group filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of alleged victims of Miller, seeking punitive and psychological damages.
