E. Jean Carroll’s Lawyer Responds To New Donald Trump Attack

Roberta Kaplan, an attorney for the writer E. Jean Carroll, reportedly said that “all options are on the table” after former President Donald Trump once again attacked her client’s claims.

Trump on Monday used his Truth Social platform to rant about the huge damages he has been ordered to pay Carroll in recent months. He also suggested that he’d “never met” her, aside from a “quick handshake.”

Carroll in 2019 accused Trump of raping her decades earlier, prompting a civil jury last year to find him liable for sexual abuse but not rape, which has a technical definition under New York law. Trump, now the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, was also found liable for defamation and ordered to pay $5 million in damages.

A second defamation case against Trump ― who was accused of damaging Carroll’s reputation after he called her a liar ― saw her awarded an additional $83.3 million in damages earlier this year. Trump has appealed both rulings.

Kaplan, according to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, responded to Trump’s latest comments by saying: “We have said several times since the last jury verdict in January that all options were on the table. And that remains true today ― all options are on the table.”
