Gloria Allred Leads Defamation Lawsuit Against Trump

Summer Zervos vs Donald Trump

The court papers state: "This lawsuit seeks to make Donald Trump accountable for the significant damage he has caused Ms. Zervos - a woman who had the fortitude and courage to come forward and speak truth to power, so that the nation would be informed about the true Donald Trump".

Summer Zervos, a former contestant on Donald Trump's The Apprentice, announced on Tuesday that she is suing him for defamation - just four days before his inauguration as President. While campaigning for president, Trump claimed that Zervos and his other accusers were liars motivated by fame. "[I have been] threatened, bullied and saw my business targeted". She also requested that Trump retract his statement calling her a liar.

"Mr. Trump stated that after the election he would file lawsuits against me and the other accusers he sexually assaulted ..." No matter what sort of Twitter rant Trump inevitably responds with, she hopes Zervos' suit is taken seriously by the rest of us.

She said that she would be willing to dismiss her case without monetary compensation if Trump admitted she had been telling the truth.

The video, which prompted many Republicans to renounce Trump's presidential bid, showed the billionaire boasting to "Access Hollywood" correspondent Billy in 2005 of being able to grab women by the genitals.

When Zervos announced the lawsuit Tuesday, her lawyer Gloria Allred also announced that they both plan to attend the Women's March on Washington Saturday. "We were patient. But time is up".

Trump hasn't yet made a public statement about the Zervos lawsuit, but he can probably be expected to issue one.

Zervos, who appeared on the fifth season of the reality show, said Trump had tried to seduce her at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2007, kissing her on the mouth without her consent and pressing himself against her. Those two factors convinced Ms Zervos to go public, Ms Allred said.

Immediately after leaving Trump, Zervos told her father about the encounter, according to the suit.

More than a dozen women, including his first wife Ivana Trump, have accused the president-elect of sexual misconduct.

"I wanted to give Mr Trump the opportunity to retract his false statements about me and the other women who came forward". She had previously been friendly with Trump, which the suit chalks up to her believing his alleged misconduct with her was an isolated incident. "Voters are exhausted of these circus-like antics and reject these fictional stories and the clear efforts to benefit Hillary Clinton".

Hours later, Trump's campaign issued a statement denying her accusations and in turn accusing her of seeking the spotlight.

We don't know how much of a publicity stunt this is, but we do know that it definitely helps feed the Trump controversy machine.
