NEW YORK (AP) - A judge has ruled that a former "Apprentice" contestant who sued President Donald Trump for defamation cannot force him to turn over evidence about other women who have accused him of making unwanted sexual advances.
The New York Times reported that Judge Jennifer Schechter said Friday that Trump must respond to questions directly related to Summer Zervos' allegation that he inappropriately kissed and groped her twice in 2007.
But the judge said during a hearing in state court in Manhattan that Zervos had not demonstrated that evidence related to other women's claims had "any legitimate legal bearing" on Zervos' lawsuit against Trump.
Zervos sued Trump for calling her a liar after she accused him of unwanted advances. Trump has called Zervos' allegations of misconduct "100 percent false."
