Donald Trump Calls Subpoena By Ex-‘Apprentice’ Contestant “Disgraceful”
The subpoena was part of the opposition Allred filed for her client September 19 rejecting Team Trump’s attempt to get the case dismissed. “Defendant’s attacks were defamatory because his statements were factual, provably false, and fundamentally debased Ms. Zervos’s Reputation,” the opposition stated. Zervos filed her suit in New York Supreme Court on January 17, three days before Trump became the 45th President of the United States.
“Our subpoena is obviously not ‘fake new,’ since it is filed with the Court in Summer Zervos’ lawsuit against him and the Trump Pence campaign has acknowledged receiving it,” Allred told Deadline Monday after the President’s press conference had concluded. “Assuming the Court denies President Trump’s motion to dismiss our lawsuit and allows us to proceed, his campaign will be required to respond to our subpoena,” the attorney added.
