In a new court filing in her defamation case against Trump, Carroll’s attorneys said she intends to sue Trump in late November under the New York Adult Survivors Act that allows adult survivors to bring claims that would otherwise be barred by the statute of limitations. Carroll will allege battery and intentional infliction of emotion distress in the suit, her lawyers told the judge.
Carroll’s lawyers acknowledged it was unusual to notify a judge and defendant of a “yet-to-be-filed” lawsuit but said they were doing so given the ongoing related litigation.
Trump has denied raping Carroll at a New York department store in the mid-1990s. He has also denied defaming Carroll.
In the new filing, they said a deposition is the only way to go since Trump has “barely participated” in the fact finding process.
Trump was late in providing documents and provided “boiler plate” responses, Carroll’s lawyers said in a letter to the judge.
