The Wall Street Journal: Judge says Trump must be deposed in defamation suit by ‘Apprentice’ contestant

A New York judge on Tuesday ordered President Donald Trump and a woman claiming he made unwanted sexual advances to be deposed by the end of January in a defamation lawsuit that the president’s lawyers say shouldn’t be heard while he is in office.

Justice Jennifer Schecter, who weeks earlier ruled that the case shouldn’t have to be delayed to accommodate a sitting president, set a schedule for party depositions in a case brought by Summer Zervos, a former contestant on “The Apprentice.” The decision means that Trump could be forced to answer questions under oath.

Zervos has said Trump groped and kissed her without consent about a decade ago.
