E. Jean Carroll Adds Former President Trump’s Post-Verdict Remarks To Defamation Case

NEW YORK (AP) — Lawyers for a columnist who won a $5 million sexual abuse and defamation award against former President Donald Trump have filed an amended lawsuit against him, asking for another $10 million for remarks he made after the verdict.
The amended lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court Monday by lawyers for E. Jean Carroll.
A jury two weeks ago decided that Trump had sexually abused Carroll at an upscale Manhattan department store in early spring 1996.
Carroll first revealed in a 2019 book claims that Trump raped her in a store dressing room.
The jury rejected that claim.
Trump lawyer Joe Tacopina declined to comment on the new claims Monday.
