Lawsuit against Trump unexpectedly dropped

A lawsuit against former President Donald Trump by a former contestant on “The Apprentice” was dropped on Friday after almost five years of accusations against the former president. 

According to a report by Newsmax, Summer Zervos abruptly decided not to continue with the suit without so much as an apology or any compensation from Trump.

This decision not only likely saves the former president money, but allows him to avoid being questioned under oath for the court case which included the accusation that he was the perpetrator of unwanted kissing and groping in 2007.

A statement made through his political action committee indicated that the former president was glad to see the suit come to an end and he then took a stab at the media for it’s continued, primarily negative, coverage of the legal action:

“The lawsuit brought by a woman who made up false accusations against President Trump for publicity or money has just been dropped in its totality. The Fake News Media totally and completely distorted the facts — they are corrupt.”

The release was the virtual version of a victory lap, saying “No money of any kind, or legal fees, were paid by President Trump, who stated: ‘It is so sad when things like this can happen, but so incredibly important to fight for the truth and justice. Only victory can restore one’s reputation!’”

Zervos previously claimed after she filed her suit the month Trump took office, that through his actions, Trump also damaged her reputation after she accused him of sexual assault and he called her a liar, to which Trump responded saying her actions were politically motivated:

“Ms. Zervos no longer wishes to litigate against the defendant and has secured the right to speak freely about her experience,” her lawyers Beth Wilkinson and Moira Penza said in a joint statement. “Ms. Zervos stands by the allegations in her complaint.”
