Former President Trump’s Attorneys Post Bond To Support $83.3 Million Award To Writer In Defamation Case

NEW YORK (AP) — A lawyer for Donald Trump says the former president has secured a bond sufficient to support an $83.3 million jury award granted to writer E. Jean Carroll during a January defamation trial.

Attorney Alina Habba filed papers on Friday with the New York trial judge to show that Trump had secured a $91.6 million bond from the Federal Insurance Co.

Habba simultaneously filed a notice of appeal to show the Republican 2024 presidential front-runner is appealing the verdict to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The posting of the bond was a necessary step to delay payment of the award until the 2nd Circuit can rule.
