The former president repeated his claims at the interview which Carroll believes was another attempt at defaming her.
However according to Carroll’s attorney, Trump’s statements directly pointed to the issue of punitive damages which are intended to punish the person found liable.
Notably, a day after a nine member jury found Trump liable for sexually abusing and defaming the Elle magazine writer he called her a whack job on CNN.
Meanwhile he added that E Jean Carroll was telling a made up story and that he didn’t know her which according to Corroll’s lawyers comes under the category of further defamatory statements.
“ Trump’s defamatory statements post verdict show the depth of his malice towards Carroll since it’s hard to imagine defamatory conduct that could possibly be more motivated by hatred, I’ll or spite the complaint reads.
“This conduct supports a very substantial punitive damages award in Carroll’s favor both to punish Trump to deter him from engaging in further defamation and deter others from doing the same ,” it added.
Meanwhile the Federal court earlier this month announced the verdict and awarded $5m in compensation and punitive damages to Carroll.
The nine member jury comprising of six men and three women reached a unanimous verdict in less than three hours but didn’t agree with Carroll’s allegations that the former president raped her.
However after receiving the verdict in her favour, Carroll termed it a victory for all the women who are victims of sexual assault.
