Trump loses defamation case against E. Jean Carroll

The former president was ordered to pay more than $80 million to the woman who accused him of rape

Former US President Donald Trump has been ordered by a Manhattan jury to pay $83.3 million to journalist and author E. Jean Carroll.

Carroll has argued that Trump damaged her reputation in 2019 when he publicly claimed that she had lied when she accused him of rape.

Siding with Carroll, the jury ruled on Friday that Trump should pay $18.3 in compensatory damages and $65 million in punitive damages. The jury found that the former president’s statements had caused Carroll emotional and reputational harm.
