LAWSUIT: “A New York judge handed a loss Thursday [Aug. 6, 2020] to President Trump in the defamation lawsuit brought by a woman who says he raped her years ago, rejecting Trump’s bid to delay the case while an appeals court considered a separate, but similar, matter…

Thursday’s ruling means that in the coming weeks and months, Carroll’s legal team can press forward with seeking Trump’s DNA, which they hope to compare to genetic material on the dress she said she wore during the incident, and with trying to interview Trump under oath.”
