This one is one of the many Doanld Trump sexual miscounduct case’s he’s faced and IS still facing….
A federal judge in Manhattan on Friday denied Donald Trump’s latest attempt to delay a defamation trial with writer E. Jean Carroll set for January.
Carroll sued Trump in 2019, alleging he defamed her when he denied her allegation that he raped her, said she wasn’t his “type” and suggested she made up the allegation to sell a book. The case has been tied up in litigation because Trump was president at the time he made the statements.
In a court order, district Judge Lewis Kaplan denied Trump’s motion to stay the case pending an appeal. Trump had asked Kaplan to allow the delay while his legal team litigates an appeal of the judge’s ruling that found Trump previously waived the use of presidential immunity as a defense to the defamation lawsuit.
Kaplan said he is not required to stay the case while the appeals court considers the issue.
“While there is a public interest in immunizing presidents for actions properly taken within the scope of their duties, there is a public interest also in ensuring that even presidents will be held accountable for actions that – as this Court already has determined in this case – do not come within that scope,” Kaplan wrote.
The judge also opposed any further delay reiterating his concerns over Trump and Carroll’s “advanced” ages. Trump is 77; Carroll is 79. Kaplan is also in his late 70s….
The judge ‘goes there’ and mentions his , Trump’s and E, Carroll’s ALL being in their 70’s….
