Former President Donald Trump Is Suing His Lifetime apprentice Contestant Summer Zervos reportedly filed a defamation suit against him in violation of New York law.
Mr Trump’s notice of his counterclaim against Ms Zervos was filed in a New York state court on Monday, for questioning under oath in a videotaped statement for Mr Trump by the judge overseeing the defamation case in December. About two weeks after setting the limit.
Ms Zervos, who claims Mr Trump assaulted her in a Beverly Hills hotel room more than a decade ago, sued her for defamation after calling her a liar just before the 2016 election.
Ms. Zervos’ attorneys Beth Wilkinson and Moira Penza said in a statement: “Mr. Trump’s unfounded counterclaim against Miss Zervos is a desperate response to the court order that she and her aides be removed by December 23.” “We look forward to taking Mr. Trump’s statement and fighting his unwarranted attacks against our client.”
Mr Trump’s counterintelligence alleges violations of New York’s Anti-Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation, known as the anti-SLAPP law. This is to prevent “lawsuits with bad intentions – particularly to discourage public participation or silencing the free speech of others,” according to their filing.
Mr Trump made the filing the same day he sued the US House committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol by a mob of his supporters to block the release of documents.
Also on Monday, Mr Trump sat down for a statement at a trial in which protesters allege he was attacked by his employees in 2015. In a statement, he denied wrongdoing and said he was happy to tell his side of the story.
“Instead of protesting peacefully, plaintiffs deliberately sought to incite the crowd by blocking the entrance to Trump Tower on 5th Avenue, wearing Klu Klux Klan robes and hoods,” Trump said, referring to Ku. Klux Klan.
“When security tried to defuse the situation, they unfortunately faced taunts and violence by the plaintiffs.”
