Federal Judge Strikes DOJ from the Docket in E. Jean Carroll's Case Against Donald Trump

Source: lawandcrime.com

In late October, a federal judge denied the Department of Justice’s effort to fend off rape allegations against President Donald Trump in a defamation suit on the taxpayer’s dime, but the court’s docket did not catch up with that reality for weeks.

U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan made the record abundantly clear in a 1-page order on Friday.


“[T]he docket sheet erroneously lists Mr. [Stephen] Terrell and another attorney as counsel for defendant Trump,” Kaplan wrote, referring to a Justice Department lawyer. “That is incorrect. They represent only the United States.”

Carroll says that Trump defamed her by denying that he raped her in the dressing room of the department store Bergdorf Goodman in the 1990s.

The Justice Department tried to barge into the case in September, insisting that Trump responding to rape allegations with comments like “She’s not my type” is just one of the duties befitting of the President of the United States.....................................

Gee---maybe Rudy can take this case.

The judge ordered on Friday that Trump’s prior private counsel in the state lawsuit represent the outgoing president in federal court.

1. Gee - I sure hope Donnie's been paying that other lawyer's bills

Or he could be scrounging for a new attorney.

I wonder if Rudy is available?? He only charges $20K per day. That drippy hair goop don't come cheap.

Trump! You are a LOSER!

3. Trump is so psychotic, he thinks he IS the United States....

or the king thereof in his diseased mind.

Thank goodness for our level-headed courts. What a relief in today's bizarro world.

5. Thanks, had to refresh my 'ole memory.....

"L'etat, c'est moi":

(Merriam-Webster)
L'état, c'est moi means "I myself am the nation." The French words literally mean "the state, it's me" and are usually rendered "the state, it is I" in English.


(The Grammarist)
L'état, c'est moi translates as "I am the state." It is used in reference to someone who claims absolute power, without boundaries or rivalries. The term l'état, c'est moi is attributed to Louis XIV, king of France for seventy-two years.

That does describe him quite well.

Donald the Zeroth.....

Actually, Donald the Minus Oneth.....

KY............ ..........

8. In olden times time King and Nation was the same...

... in many ways. If the king was strong the country was strong and vice versa.

In this way something is rotten in the State of Denmark has a double meaning. Yes, the country has big problems, but also the state of the prince is bad...

7. We can reinforce that idea when evicted Trump is brought up on RICO charges

and tries to get the DOJ to defend him.
