No Delay for Trump on Suit by 'Apprentice' Star

Trump’s bid to dodge Summer Zervos lawsuit denied by judge

A NY appeals court rejected President TrumpDonald John TrumpGiuliani says Federal Bureau of Investigation may have placed spy in Trump campaign Giuliani: There is "nothing illegal about looking for dirt on political opponents" Giuliani: If Mueller subpoenas us, we will challenge it MORE's motion on Thursday to halt a former "Apprentice" contestant's defamation case against him. A court ruled on May 17, 2018, that the former "Apprentice" contestant can proceed with her defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump.

Zervos brought the suit here past year, claiming that Trump defamed her when he said that the multiple unwanted sexual advances by Trump that she recounted were a "hoax".

Trump is appealing a ruling by Justice Jennifer Schecter of the State Supreme Court in Manhattan, which rejected his claim that as president he was immune from lawsuits over private conduct predating his entering the White House. Kasowitz did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the ruling.

Zervos alleges Trump kissed her twice on the lips during a 2007 meeting at his office, and kissed and groped her the next time she saw him at a Beverly Hills, California, hotel, where she had gone to join him for dinner.

"We look forward to proving Ms. Zervos's claim that defendant lied when he maliciously attacked her for reporting his sexually abusive behavior", Zervos' law firm, Cuti Hecker Wang said in a statement on Thursday.

Zervos was one of almost a dozen women who came forward during the 2016 presidential race to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct.

"The subpoena asks for "(a) ll video and audio recordings that include Donald J. Trump talking or commenting on the female candidates or female potential candidates of any season of The Apprentice in any sexual or inappropriate manner, including without limitation any statements or comments by Donald J. Trump concerning any female candidate's or potential candidate's body or body parts and/or his sexual or romantic desire or intention concerning any female candidate or potential candidate". Trump had argued the supremacy clause required the suit to be stayed. "Respectfully, the Appellate Division's order denying a stay of the case pending the resolution of this key issue is incorrect".
