4. E. Jean Carroll’s Defamation Lawsuit
Who could forget about Jean Carroll’s defamation lawsuit? Carroll, alleging that Trump has raped her in the 1990s, brought a case against him that, unsurprisingly, his team of Department of Justice lawyers attempted to effectively dismiss.
Only a handful of days before the 2020 election, a federal judge rejected his attempts. The case is proceeding through the federal court system and, furthermore, Trump has denied the allegations by saying that Carroll is “not his type”.
