Trump rape accuser adds to former president's legal woes by asking court to keep defamation lawsuit

An American journalist who had accused former President Donald Trump of defaming her when he denied sexually assaulting her in the mid-1990s has urged federal courts to keep the lawsuit alive, Bloomberg reported.

E. Jean Carroll asked the US Court of Appeals in Manhattan to affirm a judge's finding that Trump was not acting within the scope of his office as president when he allegedly defamed her, she said in a Substack post on Friday night.

Last summer, the former Elle columnist made headlines when she published an account accusing Trump of raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the mid-1990s.

The former president initially defended the case as a private individual. The Justice Department then tried to substitute the US for Trump in the case, arguing that Carroll's lawsuit was actually against a federal worker and not a private citizen.

Last October, a federal judge rejected the Justice Department's effort to replace Trump as the defendant and opened up the possibility of Trump being personally sued over the matter.
