The guy must think he’s gonna lose, eh?
Trump’s lawyer is going for broke against the judge…..
(Trump has NOT faired well with judges since Jan. 6 2020)
Donald Trump IS gonna try EVERYTHING he can to forstall a guilty verdict playiong in the media and to his wife….
Donald Trump has requested a mistrial in a civil case where the writer E. Jean Carroll is accusing him of rape and defamation, saying the judge made several “unfair and prejudicial” rulings against him.
In an 18-page letter filed early Monday in Manhattan federal court, Trump’s lawyer Joe Tacopina accused U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan of being biased against the former U.S. president, including in the jury’s presence.
He said the effect of Kaplan’s rulings “manifests a deeper leaning towards one party over another,” including in comments where the judge “openly expresses favoritism.”
Lawyers for Carroll did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The trial is expected to resume on Monday, with Carroll facing a second day of cross-examination by Tacopina.
Requests for mistrials are often long shots, including when they are based on the judge’s own statements. Such requests also often form a basis for eventual appeals….
If no mistrial were granted, Tacopina said Kaplan should correct the record and give him more freedom to cross-examine Carroll and her witnesses.
Others who may testify for Carroll include two friends she talked with shortly after the alleged rape, and two other women who have said Trump assaulted them.
Several women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct. He has denied their allegations….

No fan of Trump ,but I must admit that some of the judges comments in front of the jury have surprised me.
Trump JAS BEEN fucking with judges since the Jan. 6 bums rush……
Across the country the judge’s have been on his case…..
I’m sure you have NEVER had a client that went at judges on THEIR case like Trump…..
They went straight to jail?
Or lost the case and forked up $$$$$$

Unsurprisingly,you didn’t understand my comment.
My point was simply that some of the judges in trial comments in front of the jury surprised me in that they could be construed as a bias against the defense which of course are grounds for an appeal.
A Judge can’t use the excuse that because a defendant made out of court statements that he found personally offensive ,the judge was entitled to treat the defense in a manner to indicate his disgust with them.
Things don’t work that way.
Once again though and,as usual I might add, you lack comprehension as to the point I was making.
I understand the ‘fairness’ rule…..
MY Point ?
As with Alito
Judges ARE HUMAN and sometimes DO ‘act THAT Way’
In Trump’s cases ACROSS the country they have been doing so Repeatedly……
I’d be coif you ever ran into someone who attacked the judge like he has and won the case?
What people do NOT do on the regular is fuck with the judge presiding over ur case and walk away in one piece…..
I could be wrong
Bit i think this is the same judge the dat on the Trump Organization guilty trial from DA Bragg……
Trump rape trial update….
Lawyers for Donald Trump have asked the judge overseeing the Manhattan district attorney’s hush money case against the former president not to “muzzle” him with a protective order proposed by the prosecution.
“The People have proposed what would be an unprecedented and extraordinarily broad muzzle on a leading contender for the presidency of the United State…
The criminal hush money case has nothing to do with the civil rape case.
NBC News: Trump attorney Joe Tacopina just told Judge Kaplan that Donald Trump **WILL NOT** testify in his civil rape trial. @MSNBC
He’d be done on the cross examination
