>> A woman who has accused President Donald Trump of sexual harassment, won the right to sue him for defamation on Tuesday, after a New York judge ruled Trump does not have immunity as a sitting U.S. President. Summer Zervos, a former contestant on Trump's reality show The Apprentice is one of about a dozen women who accuse Donald Trump of sexual harassment while he was running for president in 2016
>> He put me in an embrace and I tried to push him away. You do not have the right to treat women as sexual objects just because you are a star.>> On Tuesday Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Jennifer Schecter said there was quote absolutely no authority to dismiss Zervos' lawsuit.
Saying it can go forward because it relates to, quote, unofficial conduct by Trump. The judge cited Paula Jones's 1994 For sexual harassment law suit against then President Bill Clinton as a precedent for her ruling. The ruling raises the chances of Trump being compelled to answer questions in court about his behavior towards women.
Trump has denied claims of sexual misconduct, and has called Zervos and his other accusers liars, attacking their credibility and their motives.>> Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign.>> Zervos says Trump's attacks on her character harmed her career.>> Since Mr Trump has not issued a retraction, as I requested, he has therefore left me with no alternative other than to sue him in order to vindicate my reputation.
>> Trump was hit with another bit of bad news Tuesday related to his alleged conduct with women. The case similar to one brought by adult film star Stormy Daniels. Former Playboy model Karen McDougal filed a lawsuit to break a nondisclosure agreement, in which she said she was paid $150,000 to keep silent about an alleged affair with Trump.
The White House and President Trump have repeatedly denied both affairs.
