E. Jean Carroll Hints at Another Lawsuit Following Trump Rant

(TargetDailyNews.com) – E. Jean Carroll’s lawyer, Roberta Kaplan, won’t say whether or not they intend to sue former President Donald Trump a third time over his claim that he did not assault Carroll at the posh Bergdorf-Goodman department store in a changing room during some time in the mid-1990s.

Carroll previously was awarded $91 million after civil trials found Trump liable for sexual assault and defamation solely based on claims made by Carroll without any physical evidence. Carroll’s lawsuit was bankrolled by billionaire Reid Hoffman of LinkedIn fame, and a special exemption to the statute of limitations was in effect that allowed it to go forward. No criminal charges were ever filed.

In a Memorial Day post on Truth Social, Trump wished his audience a happy holiday and then proceeded to write a diatribe bashing the two separate New York trials (one for the claims of sexual assault, the other for claims of defamation after Trump denied the charges and characterized Carroll as crazy). Both cases are being appealed.

Kaplan replied to Trump’s post suggesting that “all options are on the table,” without outright saying they would sue him again. This isn’t the first time Kaplan suggested they would sue Trump a third time, however. In January, she told corporate media that they could sue him again after he made public comments similarly denouncing the claims against him.

Kaplan told the press that they “monitor every statement” Trump makes regarding Carroll and ironically highlighted that the statute of limitations in defamation claims is 1-3 years, depending on the jurisdiction.

Serial fabulist E. Jean Carroll has made multiple sexual assault accusations against other men with none of them ever making it into criminal or civil complaints, besides her claim against Trump. She’s also characterized these assaults as “sexy” during a conversation with corporate press at the height of her popularity. Carroll used the fame from her accusations to propel her book sales.

These data points were forbidden from being discussed at trial before the jury, as the judge considered them extraneous and irrelevant.
