Jury Orders Trump to Pay E. Jean Carroll $83.3 Million in Damages

A federal court jury has ordered former President Donald Trump to pay $83.3 million in damages to E. Jean Carroll for defamatory comments he made about her in 2019 1. The remarks attacking her character kicked off years of threats and harassment from the former president’s supporters.

Carroll, a former magazine columnist, alleged that Trump raped her in a department store in the mid-1990s and then defamed her when he denied her claim 2. In a separate trial last year, a civil jury found Trump sexually assaulted Carroll and defamed her in 2022 statements . The judge previously ruled that verdict would carry over to this defamation trial.

The verdict comes after a dramatic day in court that included the former president storming out of the courtroom during Carroll’s closing argument 3. The jury awarded a total of $83.3 million in damages to Carroll for Trump’s defamatory comments .

This is a significant victory for Carroll and a reminder that no one is above the law. It also highlights the importance of holding public figures accountable for their actions. We hope that this verdict will encourage others to come forward and speak out against sexual assault and harassment.
