E. Jean Carroll's Legal Team Demands $91M Bond Approval in Trump Defamation Case


In a significant escalation of E. Jean Carroll's defamation lawsuit against former President Donald Trump, her attorneys have filed a motion requesting the court to approve a $91 million bond. This bond is part of the ongoing legal proceedings where Carroll has accused Trump of defamation after he denied her allegations of sexual assault.

The bond, which is set at $91.63 million, is intended to secure the judgment against Trump as he appeals the case. Carroll's legal team has argued that the bond is necessary to ensure that the judgment will be enforceable, given Trump's history of lengthy legal battles and appeals.

In a statement released by Carroll's attorneys, they expressed the urgency of the situation: "We cannot allow Mr. Trump to continue to delay justice for Ms. Carroll. This bond is a critical step in holding him accountable and ensuring that our client receives the damages she is owed."

Trump's legal team responded by securing the bond from the Federal Insurance Company, a subsidiary of The Chubb Corporation, raising questions about the collateral used to secure such a significant amount. Trump's lawyer, Alina Habba, stated, "Due to the numerous prejudicial errors made at the lower level, we are highly confident that the Second Circuit will overturn this egregious judgment."

The case has captured the nation's attention, not only for its legal implications but also for its potential impact on the discourse surrounding sexual assault and the accountability of public figures. As both sides prepare for the next phase of the legal battle, the public eagerly awaits further developments.
