Trump Lawyer Asks Judge to Confirm or Deny Was Mentor to Carroll Counsel for Appeal

By Matthew Russell Lee Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 29 – The business day after the verdict against Donald Trump for $83.3 million in mostly punitive damages to E. Jean Carroll, Trump's lawyer wrote to the judge that "defense counsel learned for the first time of allegations that Your Honor, while a partner at the Paul Weiss firm, had a “mentor” type relationship with Plaintiff’s lead counsel, Roberta Kaplan."

Alina Habba concluded, "this Court should provide defense counsel with all of the relevant facts. At a minimum, this information could certainly prove relevant to President Trump’s forthcoming Rule 59 motion." Letter on Patreon here.

On January 29 a very first book was published about the trial and what it might mean:

"Trump Trial II: Punitive Damages and Vow to Appeal: From the SDNY Trial to the 2024 Trail," by Matthew Russell Lee -  Ebook here (with audiobook and paperback coming).  

The book concludes:

Jury entering!  Judge Kaplan: Please hand the verdict to Andy... Thank you. Clerk will read the verdict   Andy: Did Ms. Carroll prove, by a preponderance of the evidence, that Ms. Carroll suffered more than nominal damages as a result of Mr. Trump’s publication of the June 21 and June 22, 2019 statements? Answer Yes.  

Andy (clerk): 7.3 million... 11 million... punitives: $65 million  

Judge Kaplan; Members of the jury,  If you wish to speak after the verdict - I order you not to disclose the names of any other juror, and I advise you not to disclose your own name.   Judge Kaplan: Any other business? 

Ms. Habba: I would just like to thank the court staff   

Kurt Wheelock, still banned from the UN in contravention of press freedom and the First Amendment, couldn't help thinking of that day's International Court of Justice decision....

 Kurt would go from the trial to the trail.   Watch this site / platform / feed
