Lawyers for E. Jean Carroll have rested their case against Donald Trump

Lawyers for E. Jean Carroll have rested her case against Donald Trump in the civil trial to determine how much in damages, if any, he will have to pay the former magazine columnist for his 2019 defamatory statements following her sex assault allegations.

The plaintiffs called three witnesses including Carroll who testified last week while Donald Trump sat at the defense table making audible comments for which he was admonished by the judge.

Carroll is seeking at least $10 million in damages for the 2019 defamatory statements.

In a separate trial last year, a jury found Trump liable for sexual abuse and defamation similar statements he made in 2022. The jury awarded Carroll $5 million in damages.
