'Apprentice' contestant's lawsuit against President Donald Trump may proceed, court rules

Summer Zervos has won the rights to take the President of the United States to court on Thursday after a NY appellate court ruled for the defamation case to go ahead.
"We will seek to appeal the majority decision to New York's highest court, the Court of Appeals, which we expect will agree with the dissent". She was among over a dozen women who came forward during Trump's 2016 campaign with allegations of sexual misconduct years earlier. He denied the allegations and called the women liars, which prompted Zervos to sue for defamation.
Zervos has claimed that Trump forcibly kissed and groped her during a December 2007 encounter at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles.
In a 3-2 decision on Thursday, the Appellate Division in Manhattan said the U.S. Constitution did not strip state courts of power to decide cases arising under state constitutions, even if they involved sitting presidents.
In addition, according to Bragg, other cases were stalled in anticipation of the Zervos decision, including one by the New York State Attorney General against the Donald J. Trump Foundation.
The Zervos case has already brought forth dozens of recorded depositions with Trump Organization figures as senior as Allen Weisselberg, the company's CFO, who had been at Mr. Trump's side for decades.
Zervos' lawyer Mariann Wang said in a statement: "We look forward to proving to a jury that Ms. Zervos told the truth about defendant's unwanted sexual groping and holding him accountable for his malicious lies".
Gambino crime family boss shot dead
Federal prosecutors had referred to Cali in court filings in recent years as the underboss of the Gambino organization. Frank Cali, 53, was shot multiple times and then run over by a pickup truck, according to the New York Daily News .
Zervos sued in 2017, saying Mr. Trump had hurt her reputation, harmed her business and caused threats to be made against her. But the NY appeals court said the clause in no way grants Trump such immunity.
Trump has denied Zervos' claims and called her case politically motivated.
The judge then added that the Supreme Court said in reference to the Jones case,"The Supreme Court also considered that '[i] f Congress deems it appropriate to afford the President stronger protection, it may respond with appropriate legislation'". Subjecting the president to a state trial court's jurisdiction "interferes with his ability to carry out his constitutional duty of executing the laws of the United States", the dissent said.
That paved the way for Mr Clinton's impeachment the following year. Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, had argued that Trump defamed her when he suggested that she had lied about being threatened to keep quiet about their alleged past relationship.
