A longtime Elle magazine advice columnist may proceed with her lawsuit accusing U.S. President Donald Trump of defamation for denying he raped her approximately 24 years ago in a Manhattan department store, a New York state judge has ruled.

In a decision this week, Justice Doris Ling-Cohan of the state supreme court in Manhattan said Trump failed to show that the judge lacked jurisdiction to hear plaintiff E. Jean Carroll’s claims, or that Carroll’s efforts to gather evidence should be temporarily put on hold.

“Although defendant Trump, through his counsel, claims lack of personal jurisdiction, notably, there is not even a tweet, much less an affidavit by defendant Trump in support of his motion,” the judge wrote.

I love how the New York courts reject virtually all of Trump’s attempts to escape justice.

It’s like they know all about his obstructionist bullshit and just refuse to allow him to maipulate the system an further. 

I also hope they let Carroll’s attorneys call him to testify in this case, because that would force him to admit wrongdoing under oath.
