. Judge Rejects Donald Trump Bid to Dismiss E. Jean Carroll’s First Defamation Lawsuit « JO LEE MAGAZINE

U.S.NEWS – U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan in Manhattan found no merit in Trump’s arguments that he deserved absolute presidential immunity, and that many of his statements about Carroll were opinion and thus protected. The judge also rejected Trump’s claim that the former Elle magazine columnist “consented” to his statements by purposely waiting decades to go public, until he was in the White House, leaving him “no choice” but to defend himself. Alina Habba, a lawyer for Trump, said: “We disagree with the court’s decision and will be taking the appropriate steps to preserve all viable defenses.”
