(The Post Millennial) – A Manahattan judged dismissed a lawsuit with prejudice against former President Donald Trump filed by former “Apprentice” star Summer Zervos.
Zervos accused Trump of groping and kissing her without consent while she was a contestant on the reality show back in 2007. The suit, filed in 2016, was dropped because Zervos walked back her claims.
In another New York courtroom, a separate lawsuit involving the former commander-in-chief filed by his former attorney Michael Cohen to recupe past legal fees was also dismissed, earning Trump another legal win.
A spokesperson for the Trump organization lauded the dismissal, accusing Cohen of trying to enrich himself based off his association with the 45th president.
“Today’s incredible victory for the Trump Organization puts an end to the frivolous litigation by convicted felon Michael Cohen. While the Southern District of New York already found that Mr. Cohen engaged in a ‘smorgasbord of fraudulent conduct…motivated by personal greed and ambition,” the spokesperson wrote in a statement obtained by CNN. “Mr. Cohen attempted to invent a basis for requiring the Trump Organization to pay his legal fees for personal criminal conduct (including perjury). Mr. Cohen’s attempts at self-enrichment, however, once again failed. Having won this case, we now look forward to seeking monetary damages against Mr. Cohen for all of his despicable conduct.”
The courtroom victories for Trump come as the establishment launces legal attacks against Trump allies, with Steve Bannon indicted by a federal grand jury Friday, charged with contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions from the select House Committee tasked with investigating the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.
Bannon’s lawyer Robert Costello rebuffed the congressional Jan. 6 subpoena in early October with a legal response letter. If convicted, the former Trump adviser could face up to a year behind bars and a fine of up to $100,000.
Back in late August, the Jan. 6 committee requested communications between the former Trump White House and a blacklist of high-profile political influencers.
