Trum stonewalling rape depositionThe writer suing Donald Trump for defamation after he denied having raped her in the mid-1990s accused the former U.S. president of stonewalling and trying to avoid a scheduled deposition as he tries to delay the case indefinitely.

In a letter filed on Friday in federal court in Manhattan, a lawyer for E. Jean Carroll also said Trump was "mistaken" in arguing that the lawsuit should be dismissed altogether because the U.S. government, and not he, was the proper defendant.

Trump sought to put Carroll's case on hold on Wednesday, after the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan left it to a Washington, D.C., appeals court to decide whether Trump acted as president when he branded Carroll a liar in 2019

A determination could take months, and a ruling in Trump's favor could end Carroll's defamation case.
