Donald Trump considers reshuffling his legal team

Donald Trump considers reshuffling his legal team

A NY judge on Tuesday rejected President Trump's motion to dismiss a defamation lawsuit filed by Summer Zervos, a contestant on The Apprentice in 2005.

She sued in January previous year. The two met again that year at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where Zervos said Trump subjected her to more unwanted sexual contact in his bungalow.

Because Zervos asked for documents relating to "any woman alleging that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately", she could force the Trump campaign to shed light on other allegations against the president.

The newest member of President Donald Trump's legal team believes in controversial theories about the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election.

"No one is above the law", writes New York Supreme Court Judge Jennifer Schecter in allowing a defamation lawsuit brought by season-five Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos.

Another 41 per cent plan future price rises to offset Brexit-related issues, such as diverging regulations and border costs. But according to the agreement, the negotiators agreed to what has been termed a "backstop" solution for the border.


If the case proceeds through the court, Trump could, theoretically at least, be required to sit for a deposition.

Schecter cited litigation against President Bill Clinton in the 1990s in ruling in favor of Zervos on Tuesday.

Writes Schecter, the president "has no immunity" from laws involving "purely private acts".

Zervos claimed that Trump kissed her twice on the lips in 2007 in his NY office, "making her 'uncomfortable, nervous and embarrassed, '" when she sought him out for job opportunities and advice after appearing on the show, according to the documents.

Backed by state TV, the ruling party, and credited with an approval rating around 80 percent, his victory was never in doubt . Schiff was also referring to the fact that Putin's biggest political opponent, Alexei Navalny , was barred from the race.


In what may end up being one of the most significant pieces of evidence in Mueller's investigation of obstruction of justice, Trump went on national television and announced that he had fired former FBI Director James Comey because of his handling of the Russian Federation investigation - a statement that completely undermined what the White House said about his firing.

Zervos attorney Mariann Wang said "sound reason" prevailed.

In a statement forwarded by a spokeswoman for the firm, Kasowitz, a longtime lawyer for the Trump family, said that he will appeal Schecter's decision and will seek a stay of the case until a final determination is reached.

Trump has been accused by several women of misconduct, including after the release during the 2016 presidential campaign of an "Access Hollywood" recording in which he had spoken in vulgar terms about trying to have sex with women.
