After Press Request and Release of Trump Depo Inner City Press Moves for more SDNY Exhibits

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 7 – During the trial of E. Jean Carroll versus Donald Trump, both sides put in exhibits, but none were made available to the public or press.

  On May 4, Inner City Press filed a written request to Judge Louis A. Kaplan, copied to each party, requesting that the exhibit be released, and several motions be unsealed. 

  In court on May 4, Judge Kaplan directed the parties to either release the exhibits - which Carroll's counsel said she would do - or file a response into the docket by Saturday, May 6 at noon. He said the Press could reply by Sunday, May 7 at 5pm.

  On Friday May 5, Carroll's counsel made some but not all exhibits available to the press on DropBox, including portions of her deposition of Donald Trump.

Inner City Press published that on YouTube, it was reported for example here.

   But the defense didn't provide any exhibits nor file a response by Saturday at noon. And not all of Carroll's were provided by DropBox. 

 So on Sunday, May 7 before 5 pm, Inner City Press filed this:

"Dear Judge Kaplan:  While during the trial defense counsel proffered and introduced a number of Defense Exhibits, none were included in what has been made available by plaintiff's counsel on DropBox, which consists of: PX 1, 4, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 19, 22, 24, 45, 46, 48, 51, 53, 57, 108, 108-T, 112, 112-T, 121 and 200 (deposition of defendant, 48 minutes).

No DX of any kind.

 Our May 4 request was for both parties' exhibits, as well as the sealed motions we now understand will be docketed upon jury verdict in this case. So this filing seeks an order making all of the Defendant's Exhibit public.

 These include but are not limited to: Defendant's exhibit AA, introduced by Mr. Seigel describing Ms. Carroll saying that Les Moonves graphically sexually assaulted her on an elevator, 162 of the transcript, lines 12 through 17;  Defense Exhbit AY, introduced by Mr. Tacopina, described as a spreadsheet by Cande Carroll; also Defense Exhibit BS; Defense Exhibit BT (it was unclear if it involved pages 21, or 23, or 31);  Defense Exhibit AJ, described as a text message involving Lisa Birnbach and Megan Twohey; Defense Exhibit ER, described as Carol Martin telling a friend that Ms. Carroll intended to sue Donald Trump for rape, that "it's gone to another level" and that for Ms. Carroll "this quest has become a life style." 

As to seemingly not-yet-released Plaintiff's Exhibits, there appeared to be an Exhibit 52, in which a person referred to as Steph reportedly said, You're going to get hurt; Exhibit 31 and 31-T, Exhibit 17; these were not on DropBox.

  These exhibits should be ordered released, including the Defense Exhibits. Again -- upon a verdict if not before - the sealed motions and briefs should be docketed and redacted only as strictly necessary; a copy of any transcript of the sealed April 27, 2023 proceeding should similarly be docketed, with any necessary redactions."
