During Sunday’s presidential debate, Donald Trump called his comments about kissing women against their will and grabbing them in their genitals “locker room talk,” and since then, women have been stepping forward and accusing the billionaire of sexual assault. But the GOP contender could soon face another allegation in court.
An anonymous “Jane Doe” filed a federal suit — that a spokeswoman for Trump calls "frivolous, sanctionable and obviously politically motivated" — against the billionaire alleging Trump took her virginity in 1994 when she was 13. A federal judge scheduled a status conference to review the case, New York Daily News reported.
A status conference, also called an early conference, is held after all initial pleadings have been filed, according to the American Bar Association. The judge uses the conference to create a time frame for pre-trial activities and may also schedule a tentative hearing date at the conference.
Manhattan Federal Judge Ronnie Abrams scheduled the conference for Jane Doe v. Donald J. Trump and Donald E. Epstein for Dec. 16 — after the general election.
The suit also alleges that Jane Doe was held as a sex slave in financier and convicted sex offender Epstein’s Upper East Side apartment.
“Defendant Trump had sexual contact with me at four different parties in the summer of 1994. On the fourth and final sexual encounter with Defendant Trump, Defendant Trump tied me to a bed, exposed himself to me, and then proceeded to forcibly rape me,” Jane Doe alleges in an affidavit submitted with her suit.
Jane Doe also alleges that Trump threatened to harm or kill her family if she ever spoke out. Jane Doe wrote that she has been threatened as recently as April of this year.
