E Jean Carroll files for new damages after Trump’s CNN town hall remarks

Recommended Posts


Writer’s court filing in New York comes after ex-president demeaned her the day after being found liable for sexual abuse



An amended lawsuit seeking an additional $10m in compensatory damages – and more in punitive damages – was filed in Manhattan on Monday by lawyers for Carroll, who say remarks made by the former president in response to her rape allegations have so spoiled her reputation that she lost her longtime job as an Elle magazine advice columnist.


On 9 May, a New York jury found that Trump had sexually abused the advice columnist in a New York department store changing room 27 years ago. It also awarded about $5m in compensatory and punitive damages: about $2m on the sexual abuse count, and close to $3m for defamation for branding her a liar.


The following night, during a live town hall where Trump was interviewed on CNN in New Hampshire, Trump further and repeatedly demeaned Carroll and her experiences.


Trump said her account of a sexual assault, in the case which he is appealing, was “fake” and a “made-up story” and referred to it as “hanky-panky”. He repeated past claims that he’d never met Carroll and considered her a “whack job.”
