President Trump’s Legal Team Gets Bad News

Today, legal proceedings in the E. Jean Carroll civil lawsuit against President Trump resumed.

According to sources, President Trump’s legal team requested a mistrial in an 18-page filing, on Monday morning, the first two pages of the filing read:

U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan denied the motion almost immediately, though it remains to be seen if more motions to dismiss, on other grounds, are filed.

Here are the latest developments in the ongoing case:


Law & Crime writes:

Kaplan had not identified any part of the 18-page filing by Trump’s attorney Joe Tacopina, who challenged several of the judge’s pre-trial and evidentiary rulings.

The judge simply referred to the motion as one that landed on his desk this morning.

Tacopina complained that Kaplan repeatedly sustained several objections of his questions as argumentative and rejected his motions to preclude testimony by writer Natasha Stoynoff, another Trump accuser on Carroll’s witness list.


Just The News adds:

Jury selection in the case began last week. Trump has repeatedly denied Carroll’s allegations that he raped her in the mid-1990s in a dressing room.
