Judge Makes New Ruling Declaring That Trump Can’t Claim He Didn’t Rape E Jean Carroll

Saturday night, Judge Lewis Kaplan has now rendered a decision that prohibits former President Donald Trump’s legal counsel from arguing that he did not commit the rape of E. Jean Carroll.

The decision was rendered during a late Saturday filing preceding a January 16 trial in which defamation damages against Trump are to be determined.

The trial was scheduled to begin after a jury found Trump liable for sexually assaulting Carroll, but failed to find evidence to support the conclusion that he raped her.

“Defendant and his counsel shall not offer any evidence, conduct examination, or make any argument relating to Carroll II jury’s determination that plaintiff had failed to prove that defendant ‘raped’ her within the meaning of the New York Penal Law.” the judge in the case wrote.

Carroll was granted $5 million in compensatory damages by a jury in May 2023 from Trump, following their determination that he subjected her to sexual assault in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in 1996 and defamed her in 2022.

Carroll, in retaliation for Trump’s continuous criticism, has filed a second defamation lawsuit scheduled for trial on January 16.
