Court: Trump can’t delay suit from ‘Apprentice’ contestant
NEW YORK — Former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos can proceed with her defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump, a New York court said Thursday.
The ruling by the Supreme Court’s appellate division means Zervos’ lawyers can press ahead with a demand for Trump campaign documents and other records while they await another appeals court decision that is likely months away.
Trump’s lawyers had asked to put the case on ice until the same appeals court decides whether to dismiss it or postpone it past his presidency.
Zervos, a California restaurateur, appeared on Trump’s former show, “The Apprentice,” in 2006. She says he subjected her to unwanted groping and kisses when she sought career advice in 2007.
Trump has denied her allegations.
