Defamation lawsuit over Trump rape claim by writer E. Jean Carroll set to resume discovery

Another lawsuit for TFG to mishandle


Lawyers for ex-President Donald Trump and the writer E. Jean Carroll have agreed to resume a process for exchanging evidence and taking witness testimony under oath for her lawsuit accusing Trump of defaming her after she said he raped her in the 1990s, a court filing revealed.

The agreement sets the stage for the possible testing of a DNA sample from Trump. Carroll’s lawyers want to compare his DNA to a stain containing male DNA that is on a dress that she has said she saved from the day of the alleged attack.

Trump denies raping Carrol. There has been no court ruling so far on whether he will have to provide a DNA sample.

But Thursday’s court filing, which says both sides have agreed to resume the so-called discovery process and complete it by November, reopens the door for Carroll’s lawyers to ask Manhattan federal district court Judge Lewis Kaplan to order such a sample if Trump’s lawyers oppose their request.

The filing by Carroll’s lawyer lays out a proposed schedule of deadlines for the parties to make requests of each other for evidence in the case, and to complete the exchange of such evidence.
