LAWSUIT: “Former President Donald Trump faces an unwelcome Thanksgiving Day entrée – a new lawsuit accusing him of battery in the alleged assault of E. Jean Carroll, a former magazine advice columnist…

That’s when New York state’s recently approved Adult Survivors Act opens a one-year window for survivors of sexual assault that occurred when they were past age 18 to sue alleged abusers, no matter when an assault may have occurred.”
