Donald Trump Pedophile Rape Case Delayed: UPDATED October 12th

Posted By: ZiLe Ohai - 12:51:00 PM



UPDATE: The lawsuit was refiled on Sept 30th to add another witness. The first pretrial hearing is now scheduled for December 16th. The latest post on the new trial is here

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~UPDATE: On Friday, September 16th, Jane Doe's lawyer moved to voluntarily dismiss the lawsuit due to a second eyewitness to the rape coming forward. They will be refiling the case once they have the eyewitness statement. Details are here

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jane Doe filed her lawsuit on June 20th. Ten days later (June 30th), Judge Abrams scheduled the pretrial conference for September 9th. New York law gives Jane Doe 90 days after filing suit to serve all defendants notification of the lawsuit, so technically she has until around September 20th to show proof of service but defendants are entitled to 20 days after being served to file a response so the judge set a new date for October 14th.

The delay is unfortunate but court cases move very slowly, particularly if a lawyer is trying to be slick. If Jane Doe's lawyer can show that Trump is stalling, the need for proof of service will be waived.

While a sitting president cannot be sued for official acts as a president, should Trump be elected that ruling probably wouldn't apply to something he did privately 20 years ago. And if elected, it's doubtful Trump could continue to delay the case until being sworn in on January 20th, 2017. 

The filed court documents can be found here. The plaintiff's request for a protection order is here and a document filed in support of Jane Doe by a woman who claims she was hired to procure underage girls, is here

Jane Doe, aka Katie, gave a video interview describing her encounters with Trump. Short clips of the interview are here and here.

In addition, Jane Doe has recently opened a website called Justice For Katie that gives more information including a video taped interview. I've got 2 of the videos with transcripts here

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 


The first pretrial conference in Trump's rape case that was originally scheduled for September 9th has been delayed until October 14th. 

The Jane Doe plaintiff who has accused Donald Trump of raping her when she was 13 years old, hasn't filed confirmation of having served the defendants, Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein. The court is giving her more time to get this done.

This is the latest from the court docket:

ORDER: An initial pretrial conference is presently scheduled for September 9, 2016 in this action. Plaintiff, however, has not yet filed affidavits of service confirming that Defendants have been served with copies of the summons and complaint. In order to allow Plaintiff the full amount of time authorized by Rule 4(m) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure to serve Defendants and to allow Defendants the full amount of time authorized by Rule 12(a) to respond to the complaint in advance of the initial pretrial conference, the conference shall be adjourned until October 14, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. Initial Conference set for 10/14/2016 at 10:00 AM before Judge Ronnie Abrams. (Signed by Judge Ronnie Abrams on 8/25/2016) (cf)






You can keep up with the case as it progresses via this pacer link. In the meantime, here's a summary of the charges against Trump:

Plaintiff was subject to acts of rape, sexual misconduct, criminal sexual acts, sexual abuse, forcible touching, assault, battery, intentional and reckless infliction of emotional distress, duress, false imprisonment, and threats of death and/or serious bodily injury by the Defendants that took place at several parties during the summer months of 1994. The parties were held by Defendant Epstein at a New York City residence that was being used by Defendant Epstein at 9 E. 71st St. in Manhattan. During this period, Plaintiff was a minor of age 13 and was legally incapable under New York law of consenting to sexual intercourse and the other sexual contacts detailed herein. NY Penal L § 130.05(3)(a)
