REPORT: Trump loses appeal to delay defamation lawsuit


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by

Donald Trump has lost an appeal to New York’s highest court to delay a defamation lawsuit filed by a former “Apprentice” contestant until he’s out of office.

The state Court of Appeals refused to delay the case ​brought by Summer Zervos ​because the lower court has not yet issued a final determination on the case’s constitutional ramifications.

Trump had argued that presidents are shielded from civil litigation in state courts under the US Constitution’s supremacy clause.

The article goes on to state the following:

“New York’s highest court has rejected [Trump’s] motion for a stay,” said the attorney for Zervos, who sued the president last year after he called her a liar for saying he had sexually assaulted her at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2007.

“This is now the third time the courts have rejected [Trump’s] effort to block the progress of the case,” said Zervos lawyer Mariann Wang.
