Donald Trump appeals $5 million judgment in E. Jean Carroll case: Report

Former President Donald Trump has reportedly filed his appeal against the $5 million judgment against him won earlier this week by author E. Jean Carroll.

CNN reported late Thursday afternoon that the appeal, which Mr. Trump swore on the same day, was filed “soon after Judge Lewis Kaplan delivered” the judgment.

The 9-person jury rejected Ms Carroll’s explosive claim that Mr Trump raped her in an upscale Manhattan department store, but found him responsible for both sexual abuse and defamation by his public ridicule towards her and her claim.

The sexual abuse verdict cost Mr. Trump about $2 million and the libel verdict another $3 million.
