Donald Trump must face defamation lawsuit filed by “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos, court says

In 2017, the president called Zervos and other women accusing him of sexual harassment or sexual assault “liars.” It prompted Zervos to then file the suit.

Trump’s lawyers have said that because he is the president he’s immune from any prosecution, but the court didn’t agree.

…They cited the Supreme Court’s ruling of Clinton v. Jones, which decided the president could be sued in office relating to unofficial acts that have nothing to do with his role as president.
