Mistrial in Civil Rape Case Against Trump Rejected



Just the News: Former President Donald Trump’s attorneys on Monday asked for a mistrial in author E. Jean Carroll’s civil battery and defamation case against their client, arguing the presiding judge has a history of “pervasive unfair and prejudicial rulings” against the former president.

Trump’s attorney Joe Tacopina in a letter to Judge Lewis Kaplan asks that the case be dismissed or alternatively, “correct the record for each and every instance in which the court has mischaracterized the facts of this case to the jury” and “allow the defendant’s counsel to have greater latitude to cross-examine plaintiff and her witnesses,” according to CBS News.

Kaplan “bolstered” Carroll’s testimony because he did not properly sustain objections to some of Tacopina’s questions to Carroll, the Trump attorney also wrote in his letter.

Jury selection in the case began last week. Trump has repeatedly denied Carroll’s allegations that he raped her in the mid-1990s in a dressing room.

Update: Trump’s bid for a mistrial was rejected by the Federal judge in the case earlier today. However, Trump’s attorneys drew correlations between Carroll’s claims and an SVU episode, a show she purportedly admitted to being a fan.
