Donald Trump heads to trial, again, against E. Jean Carroll

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Donald Trump could be ordered to pay millions of dollars more to E. Jean Carroll at a second civil trial after the writer accused the former U.S. president of raping her decades ago.

Jury selection for the second trial is scheduled to begin on Tuesday in Manhattan federal court. Trump has said he wants to attend and testify at the trial, unlike at Carroll’s first trial.

Another jury last May ordered Trump to pay Carroll $5 million for having sexually abused her in a Bergdorf Goodman department store dressing room in Manhattan and defaming her by denying it in 2022.
