Trump Found Liable in Abuse Case: Strong Appeal Expected

E. Jean Carroll's legal team is confident that Donald Trump's appeal has no legitimate argument after being found liable for sexually abusing and defaming Carroll.

The federal jury in New York found Trump guilty of sexually abusing and defaming Carroll, ordering him to pay $5 million in damages.

Trump's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, plans to appeal the verdict, claiming that the rejection of the rape claim is perplexing.

Trump expressed frustration in a series of posts on his social media platform, calling the case a "witch hunt trial" and denying knowing Carroll.

Carroll confronted Tacopina after the trial, telling him that Trump is guilty, to which he smiled but did not verbally respond.

While the jury did not find Trump guilty of rape, Carroll maintains her belief that he committed the crime.

Kaplan expects Trump's legal team to prolong the process, but predicts the case will be settled within a year.

Kaplan believes that the courts are familiar with Trump's strategy of delay and does not expect significant delays, possibly resolving the case sooner if expedited.
