Trump also held liable for damage after rape and defamation in Jean Carroll case

Manhattan district court judge Lewis Kaplan stated that in the new case filed by Carroll, the jury will only decide how much compensation Trump will pay.

Kaplan noted that the jury’s verdict that found Trump guilty in the rape and defamation case earlier this year continues, and that the hearings to determine the amount of compensation will begin on January 15, 2024.

Carroll is seeking an additional $10 million in “damage” compensation, in addition to the $5 million he earned after Trump was found guilty of rape and defamation in May.

Former President Trump was found guilty by the jury after two weeks of hearings in May in the “rape and defamation” case filed by the 79-year-old tabloid writer Carroll.

The jury declared that Trump should pay Carroll $2 million for sexual harassment and assault, and $3 million for defamation, totaling $5 million in damages.

After his first legal victory, Carroll filed a second “damages” lawsuit against Trump, while Trump’s counter-libel lawsuit against Carroll was not accepted by the judge on August 8.

Carroll announced in 2019 that Trump raped her in the dressing room of the Bergdorf Goodman store in New York in the spring of 1996, while Trump denied the allegations.
