On April 2012, E. Jean Carroll, says on Facebook she's a massive Apprentice fan

On April 2012, E. Jean Carroll, says on Facebook she's a massive Apprentice fan. (Read More Here).

On 9 May, the federal jury in New York found Mr Trump had sexually assaulted and defamed Ms Carroll and ordered him to pay her about $5m (£4m) in damages.

Mr Trump was found not liable for raping Ms Carroll in a department store dressing room.

On 10 May, during a town hall event with Republican voters, broadcast by CNN, Mr Trump repeated previous claims she had "made up" a story about him assaulting her at the Bergdorf Goodman store.

He also called Ms Carroll, a former Elle magazine columnist, a "whack job" and claimed the trial was "rigged".

The new legal filing, which seeks to amend an original defamation lawsuit filed in 2019, also refers to posts published after the verdict by Mr Trump on his social network, Truth Social.

In the amended complaint, filed in US District Court in New York, Ms Carroll's attorneys argued that awarding her "very substantial punitive damages" would punish Mr Trump and "deter him from engaging in further defamation".

Mr Trump has not yet commented publicly on the new filing. The jury deliberated for less than three hours. It did not find Trump raped Carroll, but did find him liable for sexual abuse.

It awarded about $5m in compensatory and punitive damages: about $2m on the sexual abuse count and close to $3m for defamation, for branding her a liar.

Before the verdict in the highly charged case, the judge, Lewis A Kaplan, warned the courtroom: “No shouting. No jumping up and down. No race for the door.”

After the verdict, as she was escorted to a car, Carroll said: “We’re very happy.”

George Conway, a conservative lawyer and Trump critic who encouraged Carroll to sue, said on Twitter: “God bless E Jean Carroll and congratulations to Roberta Kaplan [Carroll’s attorney] and her team for a job well done.”

Trump used his Truth Social platform to say: “I have absolutely no idea who this woman is. The verdict is a disgrace – a continuation of the greatest witch hunt of all time.”

In his deposition, released to the public last week, Trump mistook a picture of Carroll in his company for a picture of his second wife, Marla Maples.

On Tuesday, lawyers for Trump issued a statement deriding the case as “bogus” and saying they would appeal “and … ultimately win”.

Politically, Trump has capitalised on his legal woes, leading by wide margins in polling regarding the 2024 Republican presidential nomination. Nonetheless, he faces mounting legal danger.

In New York last month, Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 criminal charges of falsifying business records over a hush-money payment to the porn star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election.
