The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that former President Donald Trump cannot claim presidential immunity in a defamation lawsuit filed by writer E. Jean Carroll.

The lawsuit, seeking at least $10 million in damages, revolves around comments Trump made about Carroll in 2019.

“The Second Circuit’s ruling is fundamentally flawed and we will seek immediate review from the Supreme Court,” Trump attorney Alina Habba said. (Trending: Dr. Fauci Says the Unthinkable About Going To Church)

Trump’s attempt to dismiss the case based on presidential immunity was rejected by a federal judge, a decision upheld by the appeals court.

“A three-year-delay is more than enough, under our precedents, to qualify as ‘undue,'” the panel stated.

The trial is set for January 16, and Trump’s legal team intends to seek a review from the U.S. Supreme Court.

“We are pleased that the Second Circuit affirmed Judge Kaplan’s rulings and that we can now move forward with trial next month on January 16,” attorney Robbie Kaplan said.

Additionally, Trump has pursued similar immunity defenses in his federal criminal case in Washington.
