Trump faces lawsuit from E. Jean Carroll alleging rape in legal shock

The measure passed and took effect shortly after midnight on Nov. 24, and Ms. Carroll sued Mr. Trump. The case is scheduled to begin Tuesday in federal district court in Manhattan, where a jury will be tasked with determining the truth after years of accusations and angry denials in articles, interviews and social media.

The proceedings will take place in a series of legal cases against Mr. Trump, who is campaigning to re-elect the presidency and argues that the lawsuits and investigations are designed to drag him down. Trump appeared in Manhattan Supreme Court just weeks ago, where he pleaded not guilty to fraud charges stemming from hush money payments to porn stars, and recently appeared in Manhattan to be sworn in a civil fraud lawsuit Interrogation of New York Attorney General Letitia James.

Mr. Trump also faces a criminal investigation by the Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney for attempting to interfere in the 2020 election; a federal special counsel over his decision to keep sensitive government documents at his Mar-a-Lago residence and his role in the events leading up to the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol, are being investigated. He has denied wrongdoing in all cases.

After his arraignment, news coverage came like a storm. His history of attacking judges, law enforcement officials and even individual jurors on other issues led Judge Lewis A. Kaplan in Ms. Carroll’s case to take steps to protect jurors who may fear retaliation from supporters of the former president CP: He ordered them to remain anonymous, even the lawyers and the parties.

Mr. Trump, 76, has denied that he raped Ms. Carroll, 79, and has repeatedly attacked her in public statements and on social media during and after his term in office. In 2019, he called Ms Carroll’s allegations “completely false” and said he could not have raped her because she was not his “type”.
