In the latest update on the legal tussle between former President Donald Trump and E. Jean Carroll, a federal judge has made a crucial decision. Judge Lewis Kaplan of the Southern District of New York has dismissed Trump’s counterclaim in the defamation case, dealing a blow to his efforts to defend his reputation.
The case stems from a May ruling, where a jury found Trump liable for sexually abusing Carroll in 1996 and defaming her in 2022, leading to a $5 million damages award to Carroll. Trump has consistently denied these allegations and expressed frustration with the Justice Department’s lack of support.
Judge Kaplan has further allowed Carroll’s legal team to provide tapes of Trump’s deposition to the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, raising eyebrows about the case’s complexities.
