NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Elle Magazine advice columnist E Jean Carroll is going to press for a battery lawsuit against former president Donald Trump. Carroll alleges that Trump raped her in the 1990s in Bergdorf Goodman. As per the recent reports, she will also be making use of a new New York law, the ‘New Work Adult Survivors Act’, which allows adult victims of sexual assault a one-time window to file civil lawsuits. This option is applicable even after expired statutes of limitation.

Carroll had already dragged Trump to court when she earlier sued him for defamation for claiming she was lying about the alleged attack against her and will be suing again after Trump made a second public denial of the accusation. It was in her 2019 book, that the author detailed in New York Magazine the attack she suffered at the hands of Trump in a dressing room of the luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman.

Carroll had claimed that the episode took place after a chance encounter in the lingerie department during the mid-1990s. “Roughly 27 years ago, playful banter at the luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue in New York City took a dark turn when Defendant Donald J. Trump seized Plaintiff E Jean Carroll, forced her up against a dressing room wall, pinned her in place with his shoulder, and raped her,” Carroll's new court complaint read, as per the Daily Mail.

Carroll will file the suit on November 24, the very day the new state law can be applied. Roberta Kaplan, her attorney wrote the alleged assault has caused her client, “significant pain and suffering, lasting psychological harms, loss of dignity, and invasion of her privacy.” Meanwhile, Trump, who this week confirmed his bid for president for a third-consecutive time has strongly denied the accusations, and said Carroll is "totally lying," and calling her case a "complete con job."

"And, while I am not supposed to say it, I will. This woman is not my type! She has no idea what day, what week, what month...or what year this so-called 'event' supposedly took place,” Trump wrote in an October 12 post on his Truth Social Platform. “E Jean Carroll is not telling the truth,” he added.

Though the comments made by Trump were similar to the earlier ones, this time he had to defend them differently as he’s no longer a government official, the reports said.
