Just because Donald Trump is waiting for a criminal case to drop on him doesn’t mean other cases are on hold…..
Trump is going to be doing a good amount of court time in the next two years….
U.S. district judge on Monday rejected a motion to combine two defamation lawsuits filed by author E. Jean Carroll against former President Trump into a single trial.
Carroll, who has accused Trump of raping her in the 1990s, filed two two defamation suits stemming from two sets of comments Trump made in 2019 and 2022. Carroll’s attorney sent a letter to U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan on behalf of all parties requesting that the two trials from both lawsuits be combined into one…
The second defamation lawsuit also includes Carroll suing Trump for battery when he allegedly raped her in the 1990s. This case was filed after New York enacted the Adult Survivors Act, which created a one-year time frame for adult survivors of rape and sexual assault to sue the alleged perpetrator even after the statute of limitations had expired.
Kaplan ruled earlier this month that Carroll could use the “Access Hollywood” tape and the testimony of two other women who have accused Trump of sexual assault as evidence in her defamation case.
The first lawsuit’s trial, which was supposed to start on April 10, has been paused indefinitely, while the second lawsuit is headed to trial on April 25…..
