After Tacopina Says Trump Will Not Testify Bid To Unseal Deposition Prevails so Video Here

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 5 – When E. Jean Carroll testified on April 26 on direct examination about Donald Trump allegedly raping her in Bergdorf Goodman's in 1996, then defaming her in 2019, Trump's lawyer Joe Tacopina repeatedly objected. 

  U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York  Judge Louis A. Kaplan denied most objections - and told Tacopina that his client might be subjecting himself to liability under other Federal statutes with his posts on Truth Social (and his son Eric's statements).

May 2 saw Lisa Birnbach and Jessica Leeds, a Bergdorf supervisor and the plaintiff's psychological expert, concluding with confirmation that Trump will not be coming to the trial. Thread here.

On May 3, after the psychologist Leslie Lebowitz, the plaintiff put on her sister Candy, Natasha Stoynoff and... the Access Hollywood tape. Followed up by Trump's deposition. Thread here.

On May 4 Carroll put on Carol Martin and a professor of social media, then rested. While Tacopina said he'd heard from Trump in the morning he would not come, Judge Kaplan cited statements "in the British Isles" and left the door open for a motion under Sunday, 5 pm. Thread here.

As noted, in the middle Inner City Press filed a request to unseal not only motions but also all exhibits in the case including video depositions. Request here.

 On May 5, Inner City Press obtained the exhibits and put the 48 minute deposition on YouTube here

On the rest, citing Inner City Press' request, Judge Kaplan called for a response by Saturday.  Watch this site.

Closings are still set for May 8.
