E. Jean Carroll Seeks Further Damages from Trump over CNN Remarks

HeadlineMay 23, 2023

The writer E. Jean Carroll is seeking further damages in a defamation lawsuit against Donald Trump, after he mocked her in a May 10 CNN town hall, while an audience packed with Trump supporters laughed and applauded his remarks. Carroll is seeking at least $10 million in additional compensation. Earlier this month, a New York jury in a separate lawsuit found Trump liable for sexually abusing her at the Bergdorf Goodman department store in the 1990s and defaming her, ordering Trump to pay $5 million.
