A female journalist in USA who had allegedly claimed to have been raped by the former President, Donald Trump has returned to court for justice once again. The incident that is said to have occurred in 1990s is now renewed under the new laws submitted to the judiciary of the States that protects victims against assault.
According to the journalist, E. Jean Carroll, the New York State law that took effect recenty allows victims to sue without regard to statutes of limitation. The 78-years old news writer filed the defamation suit 3 years ago. Carroll who is also a lawyer in profession said that both President Trump and herself had filed a sworn deposition affidavit before a New York State judge.
According to the upgraded lawsuit Lawyer Carroll said, 'When he forcibly raped and groped me, Trump himself tried to deny it. Even on his social media accounts he refused to accept it. We now want to sue him for battery." The new law gives sexual assault victims in New York state a one-year window to sue their alleged abusers even when the abuse occurred long ago.
The new suit accords Carroll to seek unspecified compensatory and punitive damages for psychological harm, pain and suffering, loss of dignity and damage to her reputation. The journalist's lawsuit is scheduled to head to trial at the start of 2023. The presiding judge may decide to include the new claims in the trial.
