Trump Signals Plan To Take Another Immunity Issue To Supreme Court

via BBC News

Donald Trump’s lawyers are considering asking the Supreme Court to rule on whether he can use presidential immunity to avoid a defamation lawsuit from E. Jean Carroll.

They are also asking for the trial, set for January, to be delayed. This would be the second presidential immunity-related matter to head to the court.

“There is little doubt that the Supreme Court views presidential immunity as indispensable,” Trump lawyers Michael Madaio and Alina Habba wrote. (Trending: Founding Dixie Chick Member Dies Unexpectedly)

“Mr. Smith is correct about the significance of the moment.”

The 2nd Circuit ruled that Trump waited too long to invoke the immunity defense in the Carroll lawsuit, which concerns comments he made while president.

“We hold that presidential immunity is waivable and that Defendant waived this defense,” a three-judge panel wrote.

In May, a jury found that Trump sexually abused Carroll in the 1990s and that he defamed her in 2022 when he called her account a “hoax.”

The jury ordered Trump to pay Carroll $5 million.
