Trump fights court decision on his defamation suit


Last month a Camden County, N.J., judge shot down Donald Trump's frivolous effort to punish veteran New York Times editor Timothy L. O'Brien for raising questions about the Donald's net worth in the book TrumpNation. "While the comments made by O'Brien about Trump may suggest a lack of professionalism and/or personal animus against Trump," Superior Court Judge Michele M. Fox ruled, "under the law of defamation they do not establish clear and convincing evidence of actual malice."

Trump vowed to fight the decision, and he is. RISMedia RISMedia reports: "Lawyers today filed notice with the New Jersey Appellate Court stating that they would fight a Camden County judge's decision last month to dismiss the libel suit Trump filed against author Timothy O'Brien." Trump is seeking more than $2.5 billion in damages.
