Trump attempts again to postpone $83 million judgment in E. Jean Carroll case

by | Mar 4, 2024

Donald Trump's attorneys have once again requested a postponement of the $83 million judgment in E. Jean Carroll's defamation case against the president. They argue that the recent court filing by the former columnist's lawyers contains contradictions.

Alina Habba, defense attorney, along with D. John Sauer, recently included in the Carroll case for advocating presidential immunity in Trump's federal election interference case, have reiterated Trump's plea to Judge Lewis Kaplan. They request a 30-day delay of the judgment following Kaplan's resolution of post-trial motions, or alternatively, allowing Trump to post a reduced bond of $24.475 million.

In January, Trump was instructed to compensate Carroll, a former columnist for Elle magazine, with $83.3 million in damages. This ruling stemmed from his denial in 2019 of her allegation that he sexually assaulted her in the dressing room of a Manhattan department store during the 1990s.
