NY Judges Rule Debunked Trump Accuser Can Proceed with Defamation Case Against President Trump
Summer Zervos who was a contestant on ‘The Apprentice’ with Donald Trump.
In October 2016 she claimed that Trump sexually harassed her.
But, as it turned out, it was Zervos who continued to stay in contact with Trump.

Judge Jeanine Pirro later spoke with a witness who totally debunked the Trump accuser.
John Barry, cousin of Summer Zervos, refuted her Friday accusations with Gloria Allred. John told Judge Jeanine that she was unhappy that Trump would not visit her restaurant. John added that his cousin likes to sue people.
But Summer did not go away.
Instead she sued President Trump for defamation.
On Thursday a panel of (liberal) New York judges ruled Zervos could move forward on her defamation case against President Donald Trump.
This is the latest liberal attack on the president.
A defamation case against Donald Trump filed by a former reality show contestant who said the president subjected her to unwanted kissing and groping in 2007 can proceed, a panel of New York judges ruled Thursday.
Mr. Trump’s lawyers have long sought to halt the case brought by Summer Zervos, a California restaurateur who appeared in 2006 on Mr. Trump’s NBC reality show “The Apprentice.”
Mr. Trump’s legal team had argued that the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution prevents a sitting president of the United States from being sued in state court. A finding in Mr. Trump’s favor could have derailed at least two other cases in New York courts, including a wide-ranging probe into the Trump Organization by the state’s attorney general.
“We reject defendant President Trump’s argument,” wrote Associate Justice Dianne Renwick for the majority. “Instead, we find that the Supremacy Clause was never intended to deprive a state court of its authority to decide cases and controversies under the state’s constitution.”
