Former President Trump to Appeal $83 Million Defamation Penalty Following Verdict in E. Jean Carroll Case

Former US President Donald Trump has stated that he will appeal an $83 million defamation penalty awarded to E. Jean Carroll, who accused him of sexual assault in the 1990s and defamation thereafter. Carroll’s victory in the second defamation trial against Trump has resulted in a significant financial penalty, which is substantially more than the $24 million she had initially sought. Trump’s legal team signaled their intention to appeal, citing challenges in finding an impartial jury in New York City and reinforcing Trump’s narrative of being targeted by a biased legal system.
