Donald Trump’s appeal against his $83 million conviction rejected

NEW YORK, April 25 (Reuters) – A U.S. federal judge on Thursday rejected an appeal by Donald Trump against his order to pay $83.3 million (77.6 million euros) in damages to journalist E. Jean Carroll for defamation.

District Judge Lewis Kaplan said the former US president would not be entitled to a new trial or retrial.

Now 80 years old, E. Jean Carroll, former columnist for Elle magazine in particular, filed a complaint in November 2019 against Donald Trump five months after the latter denied having raped her in the fitting room of a Manhattan department store in the 1990s.
