In the civil defamation case against Donald Trump, a Manhattan federal court jury has delivered a verdict, ordering the former president to pay $83.3 million to writer E. Jean Carroll. The decision stems from Trump’s public statements in 2019, where he disparaged Carroll and denied her rape allegations.

The seven men and two women on the panel deliberated for approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes before reaching their decision. In her closing argument, Carroll’s attorney asserted that the writer deserves a minimum of $24 million in damages.

Trump was not present in the courtroom when the verdict was announced, having left the courthouse in his motorcade around 4 p.m.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
