The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit has rejected Donald Trump’s request for immunity in E. Jean Carroll’s defamation lawsuit, leaving the Supreme Court as his only remaining option for appeal.

“The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit declined to rehear Trump’s case in a single-page, two-sentence filing on Monday,” the report note.

“The move was Trump’s last shot short of the Supreme Court to hear his case for being granted presidential immunity over comments he made denying sexually assaulting Carroll,” the report added. (Trending: Fox News Star Accused Of Major Scandal)

Carroll was awarded over $5 million in a previous trial, and a second trial is set to begin on Jan. 16 to determine damages for Trump’s alleged defamation.
