Federal Judge Finds Trump Liable for Defaming Writer E. Jean Carroll for Second Time

HeadlineSep 07, 2023

A federal judge in New York has found Donald Trump liable for defaming writer E. Jean Carroll for a second time. Trump continued to mock and disparage Carroll even after a New York jury earlier this year ordered him to pay $5 million to Carroll for sexually abusing her at a department store in the 1990s and defaming her. U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan said a trial in January will be limited to determining how much to award Carroll in further damages.
