Trump and his sister Mary are in court over their portion of a family settlement from 2001.
Then in 2020, Mary Trump sued Trump and her sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, who was a former judge who was executor for the estate of her deceased grandfather Robert Trump, alleging that “they created and implemented an elaborate plan to divert money away from their interest, hide their fraud and mislead her as to the true worth of the estate she had received.
The former President is currently suing his niece and The New York Times in New York state court for not disclosing his tax details.
The rape allegations are defamation.
Journalist and columnist for magazines E. Jean Carroll alleged that Trump assaulted her while she was in the dressing area in the New York department store in the mid-1990s. She was defamed when he denied the allegations by saying that she was not his type and could have invented the story to help increase the popularity of the book.
An appeals tribunal in the federal government examines whether the case can continue. Trump and officials from the Justice Department said Trump was an official of the federal government and that his remarks denying Carroll’s accusations were made in responses to questions from reporters during his time in the White House. The lawyers claimed they believed that the Department of Justice should be the defendant in this case; however, since the government isn’t able to sue in defamation (only one person), it would be a stalemate for the matter.
Another federal judge is set to hear a hearing on Thursday on the countersuit filed by Trump against Carroll.

A former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen sues the former President, the former Attorney General William Barr, and others, accusing them of putting him back in jail during his house arrest. They did this to prevent Cohen from promoting his upcoming book.

In retaliation, Cohen says he was ordered back to prison and was sentenced to 16 days of isolation in federal prison before a judge who pleaded for his rights.
