Court: Trump can’t de­lay suit from ‘Ap­pren­tice’ con­tes­tant

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - - NATION & WORLD - Staff and news ser­vices

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.
