New York appellate court allows Summer Zervos defamation suit against Trump to proceed
Trump’s lawyers have tried unsuccessfully to block Zervos’s suit, arguing that the president is immune from such lawsuits in state court.

A New York appellate court ruled Thursday that President Trump must face a defamation lawsuit filed by former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos, one of about a dozen women who accused Trump of sexual misconduct shortly before the 2016 election.

This is my favorite quote from the piece (emphasis added):

Contrary to defendant’s contention, Clinton v Jones did not suggest that its reasoning would not apply to state court actions,” the judges said in their majority decision. “It merely identified a potential constitutional concern. Notwithstanding that concern, this Court should not be deterred from holding that a state court can exercise jurisdiction over the President as a defendant in a civil lawsuit.”

It's so much fun to see past republican failures come back to bite them on their fat asses. 

Good luck, Summer.  Clean whatever's left of that Scumbag's bank account.

I wonder if Melania will leave his big fat stinking ass when this is all over and done with.  

She'd make millions on a tell all book.

It'll be a long wait.   I'll submit that it will happen AFTER President Trump leaves office in January 2025.

No problem.  We're patient.  As for the "I'll submit.....jrSmiley_90_smiley_image.gifjrSmiley_90_smiley_image.gifjrSmiley_90_smiley_image.gif"  you might want to find a star to wish upon?  Many people voting in 2020 to toss Scumbag out will be motivated for many  good  reasons to shitcan his ass but one of the top ones will be for the very purpose of taking away Scumbag's immunity from prosecution.

First the moronic left have to get a nominee worth voting for.  Their clown car is filled to bursting already, and more are still joining. Not one worth voting for yet out of the whole insane bunch.

Wonder why Biden is taking so long to announce?  Could it be that he is afraid of the far left loons that will be unleashed upon him?

What leads you to that conclusion? Don't you think that a Judge can figure out how to schedule Trump's deposition between his morning executive tweet sessions and weekend his golf game?

yea, most people have a dozen or so 'fake victims' hanging around, as they pay  hundreds of thousands to silence pornstars and playmates.

Nothing to see here Wally, move along now.
