Former President Donald Trump has asked the judge to declare a mistrial in his civil battery and defamation trial, arguing the judge has made “pervasive unfair and prejudicial rulings” against him.
Trump attorney Joe Tacopina, in a letter filed overnight Monday, said alternatively he would ask Judge Lewis Kaplan to “correct the record for each and every instance in which the Court has mischaracterized the facts of this case to the jury” or provide him greater leeway in cross examining E. Jean Carroll.
“Here, despite the fact trial testimony has been underway for only two days, the proceedings are already replete with numerous examples of Defendant’s unfair treatment by the Court, most of which has been witnessed by the Jury,” the letter said.
