In Carroll v Trump Case 2d Circuit Certified to DC Circuit But Now Deposition, Trump Denounces

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 12 – In case of E. Jean Carroll v Trump, on September 27, 2022, a three-judge panel of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled to reverse the District Court’s holding that the President of the United States is not an employee of the government under the Westfall Act  Full decision(s) here.

On September 28 Trump's lawyer Alina Habba wrote to Judge Kaplan asking that he change the caption of the case - and stay it. She argued, "the DC Court of Appeals forthcoming ruling will be case-dispositive and, therefore, it would be highly prejudicial and inequitable for Defendant to engage in time consuming and expensive pre-trial preparation."

On October 3 after Carroll argued that the "Second Circuit's ruling changed hardly anything," Habba wrote in a again, calling his "asinine and manifestly false."

On October 6, the lawyers called in from Kansas during the deposition of Stephanie Grisham who was on painkillers due to a broken foot. Judge Kaplan inquired, then said the deposition should go forward.

On October 7, after a full day presiding over Anthony Rapp v. Kevin Spacey, Judge Kaplan told the parties that he will rule soon but there is no stay on discovery and they are to meet all their responsibilities and commitments.

On October 12, while presiding over the Anthony Rapp v. Kevin Spacey trial, Judge Kaplan issued an order formally denying any stay of discovery, which Inner City Press has put on its DocumentCloud here.

Later this came in: "Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America  This “Ms. Bergdorf Goodman” case is a complete con job, and our legal system in this Country, but especially in New York State (just look at Peekaboo James), is a broken disgrace. You have to fight for years, and spend a fortune, in order to get your reputation back from liars, cheaters, and hacks. This decision is from the Judge who was just overturned on my same case. I don’t know this woman, have no idea who she is, other than it seems she got a picture of me many years ago, with her husband, shaking my hand on a reception line at a celebrity charity event. She completely made up a story that I met her at the doors of this crowded New York City Department Store and, within minutes, “swooned” her. It is a Hoax and a lie, just like all the other Hoaxes that have been played on me for the past seven years. And, while I am not supposed to say it, I will. This woman is not my type! She has no idea what day, what week, what month, what year, or what decade this so-called “event” supposedly took place. The reason she doesn’t know is because it never happened, and she doesn’t want to get caught up with details or facts that can be proven wrong. If you watch Anderson Cooper’s interview with her, where she was promoting a really crummy book, you will see that it is a complete Scam. She changed her story from beginning to end, after the commercial break, to suit the purposes of CNN and Anderson Cooper. Our Justice System is broken along with almost everything else in our Country. Her lawyer is a political operative and Cuomo crony who goes around telling people that the way to beat Trump is to sue him all over the place. She is suing me on numerous frivolous cases, just like this one, and the court system does nothing to stop it. In the meantime, and for the record, E. Jean Carroll is not telling the truth, is a woman who I had nothing to do with, didn’t know, and would have no interest in knowing her if I ever had the chance. Now all I have to do is go through years more of legal nonsense in order to clear my name of her and her lawyer’s phony attacks on me. This can only happen to “Trump”!

Back on February 22, 2022, Trump's lawyers argued to amend their complaint to include new provisions of NYS' anti-SLAPP law. Judge Kaplan heard and spoke to the arguments; Inner City Press live tweeted here
and below.

 On September 20, suddenly docketed in the case are letters from Carroll's counsel dated August 8, stating that she wants to depose Trump as well as sue under NYS' Adult Survivors Act as soon as possible (November 24, 2022).  Letter on Patreon here.

The case is (still) named Carroll v. Trump, 20-cv-7311 (Kaplan).
