A New York appeals court on Thursday said a defamation suit against President Trump filed by a former "Apprentice" contestant, who claims Trump groped her and pressed his genitals against her at a hotel in 2007, can move forward.

Details: When Trump denied the claims during the 2016 presidential campaign, Summer Zervos sued him for defamation. Trump’s lawyers reportedly intend to appeal. His legal team failed last year to block the suit, after suggesting that the president is protected from such lawsuits in state courts.
