A federal judge upheld his decision to reject a mistrial in the defamation case against Donald Trump, emphasizing that Trump’s legal team’s request had no merit.

The judge criticized Trump’s attorney for calling for a mistrial in front of the jury, stating that the motion made no sense and would have been pointless.

“The motion made no sense,” Kaplan wrote. “Granting a mistrial would have been entirely pointless.”

“With fewer examples to show, Ms. Carroll’s case for damages was weakened, and Mr. Trump benefitted as a result,” he wrote.

The judge noted that the missing evidence likely weakened Carroll’s case for damages and benefited Trump.

The case stems from Trump’s derogatory remarks about E. Jean Carroll, who accused him of sexual abuse and defamation.

The jury awarded Carroll $83.3 million in damages, a decision that Trump’s attorney plans to appeal.

“It will not deter us. We will keep fighting,” attorney Alina Habba said. “And, I assure you, we didn’t win today, but we will win.”
