New York

 court fines Trump $83.3 million 

in compensation to writer Carroll


A New York jury has reached a verdict committing former US President 

Donald Trump to pay $83.3 million to writer Elizabeth Jane Carroll

who accused him of rape and defamation.


On Friday

CNN reported that the trial was the second in the case

but this time it only revolved around the amount of compensation for the writer

 who added to the case Trump's latest remarks, saying it was detrimental to

 her career and causing moral harm to her.


On January 16

the Manhattan Federal Court in New York on Tuesday began arguments in

 the second lawsuit filed by writer and journalist E.

 Jean Carroll against former U.S. President Donald Trump.


The author had accused Trump of sexual harassment

rape and defamation. 

The court handed down Trump's conviction in May 2023

 obliging him to pay Carroll $5 million while dropping the rape charge.


According to the court's ruling, Trump had to pay Carroll $2 million in damages

and another $3 million for defamation and reputational abuse.


Following the ruling

Trump stated that the court had established that 

he had not committed the crime of rape against the author

adding that he "did nothing else for her.


On the back of his remarks

 Carroll decided to file a new lawsuit against Trump

 seeking additional damages, the size of more than $10 million.


Trump 

was not present in court when the verdict was handed down

calling the jury's decision absolutely ridiculous.

(The ruling) 

is absolutely ridiculous! I never agree with both provisions

 and will appeal against this witch hunt, directed

 by Biden to target me and the Republican Party.
