Trump Asks Judge to Reduce $83.3M Judgment, Requests New Trial in E. Jean Carroll Defamation Case

Donald Trump’s attorneys filed a motion Tuesday for a new trial in writer E. Jean Carroll’s defamation case and asked a judge to substantially reduce the judgment of $83.3 million against the former president.

In a federal court filing in New York, Trump attorneys Alina Habba and John Sauer wrote that a district court could grant a motion for a new trial because, they argued, relevant evidence had been excluded and the jury had been “erroneously instructed” about a key component of the case.

“This Court’s erroneous decision to dramatically limit the scope of President Trump’s testimony almost certainly influenced the jury’s verdict, and thus a new trial is warranted,” the attorneys wrote.
