E. Jean Carroll Sues Trump for Sexual Assault Using New York’s Adult Survivors Act

HeadlineNov 28, 2022

Former columnist and writer E. Jean Carroll is suing Donald Trump for rape. Carroll was already suing the former president for defamation, but filed her sexual assault lawsuit on Thursday, minutes after New York’s Adult Survivors Act took effect, which opens up a one-year window for adult sex abuse survivors to sue their attackers, even if the statute of limitations had passed. Carroll has accused Trump of raping her in a Manhattan department store dressing room in the 1990s. Trump has denied the claim.

In other Trump news, the former president came under fire, including from some Republicans, after he hosted far-right personality and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes and rapper Kanye West at Mar-a-Lago last week.
