Donald Trump Not Immune From 'Apprentice' Star's Defamation Lawsuit, NY Appeals Court Rules
According to today's opinion, Trump's contention that he doesn't have to face Summer Zervos' lawsuit while in office conflicts with the fundamental principle that the United States has a "government of laws and not of men."
In a lengthy decision of great significance, a New York appeals court has affirmed a decision that President Donald Trump must face a defamation lawsuit brought by season-five Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos.
The dispute arose after audio was published of Trump boasting to Access Hollywood's Billy Bush about grabbing women's genitals. As Trump was under fire for his comments, Zervos came forward to accuse him of kissing her twice in 2007 and attacking her in a hotel room. "I never met her at a hotel," responded Trump, who would also counter allegations from his accusers as "100 percent fabricated and made-up charges, pushed strongly by the media and the Clinton campaign."
Zervos alleged in her lawsuit that she was branded a liar.
