NEW YORK — President Donald Trump lost his latest bid Monday to delay a former “Apprentice” contestant’s defamation suit as he faces a Jan. 31 deadline to undergo pretrial questioning in the case, which involves claims of unwanted kissing and groping.
A New York appellate judge rejected Trump’s request, meaning that Summer Zervos’ case can continue. Trump can pursue other legal avenues to try to hold it off.
Zervos’ lawyer, Mariann Wang, declined to comment. A request for comment was sent to Trump’s lawyers.
Zervos, a California restaurateur, appeared on “The Apprentice” when Trump hosted the show in 2006. She alleges the then-businessman subjected her to unwelcome advances when she sought career advice in 2007.
She says he defamed her by calling her a liar when she came forward publicly during his 2016 presidential campaign. Both he and she are Republicans.
