W.When Donald Trump was President, his lawyers repeatedly claimed that the president’s immunity, among other things, protected him from civil litigation unrelated to his official duties. Court after court rejected this position, with various judges ruling that “no one is above the law” – although his numerous appeals delayed the litigation.

Trump is out of the White House, paving the way for serious legal action against him. Here are some of the major lawsuits against Trump.

Manhattan Grand Jury

On May 25, the Washington Post reported that Manhattan prosecutors had “convened the grand jury that is expected to decide whether former President Donald Trump, other company executives, or the company itself will be indicted should prosecutors bring criminal charges to the panel submit “.

Vance’s office is investigating whether the valuation of real estate in his company was used to defraud insurers or banks, and whether value manipulation enabled illegal tax breaks. The New York attorney general has also stepped up his investigation into a civil investigation, saying: “We are now actively investigating the Trump organization in a criminal capacity, together with the Manhattan attorney.”

E Jean Carroll

Advisory columnist E. Jean Carroll, who claimed to have raped Trump in the mid-1990s, sued him in November 2019 after denying the allegations. Claiming Carroll made up the accusation to sell her book, Trump remarked, “She’s not my type.”

The US Department of Justice, which Trump represents, had claimed that he should be considered a normal federal employee and that his statements fall within the parameters of his employment. As such, according to the DoJ, Trump is protected by the Federal Tort Claims Act – which means that his lawyers can represent him.

The judge on the case disagreed that Trump was a normal federal employee, nor that these statements were part of his job. The DoJ appealed the ruling before Biden took office. Roberta Kaplan, who represents Carroll, said they were “confident” that the appeals court will rule in their favor and that the case will ultimately be brought to justice.

Summer Zervos

Former trainee apprentice Summer Zervos claimed in October 2016 that Trump groped her. Trump, who was campaigning at the time of these allegations, said her claims were false and fabricated. Zervos filed a lawsuit against him in 2017, saying his denial slandered them.

Trump had tried to stop the case, citing the protection of the president from the judicial process. Trump’s legal team appealed to the New York Supreme Court after previously suffering legal defeats over immunity issues. On March 30, the court finally dismissed the appeal on the grounds that “the questions raised have become disputed” because he is no longer President. This means that Zervos’ lawsuit can be continued.

Vote in Georgia

Georgia prosecutors are investigating Trump’s efforts to overturn the state’s 2020 election results, according to multiple reports. Fani Willis, District Attorney for Fulton, urged state officials to hold onto documents, such as documents relating to Trump’s call to Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, and urged him to find more ballot papers in his favor.

The letter stated that “special care” must be taken “to put aside and preserve those who may be evidence of attempts to influence the actions of those who presided over those elections,” Reuters quoted the Jan. February.
