New York Supreme Court Justice Jennifer G. Schecter ruled last Friday that a former Apprentice contestant, Summer Zervos, could force the President to provide evidence in the case. Summer is suing the President for allegedly lying about sexually assaulting her.
According to the Washington Post, legal representatives on both sides signed a proposed court order directing the president to hand over his personal calendars and any journal entries made between November 2007 and February 2008.
Both sides have also agreed to meet with Trump’s phone company in an effort to obtain records related to that same time.
Summer says that during this time, Trump tried to forcibly kiss her, grabbed her breast, and rubbed his genitals on her without her consent. Trump later called Summer and other women who had accused him of misconduct “liars”. Summer fought back with this defamation lawsuit.
The Justice did deny Summer the right to force Trump to produce material related to any other allegations against him. Considering the amount of women who have come forward with allegations against Trump, this most likely isn’t the only case we will see come of this, as it seems when one person takes action it starts an avalanche of others.
