Former “The Apprentice” candidate Summer Zervos has decided to drop her defamation action against former President Donald Trump.
The case is “dismissed and discontinued,” according to the joint agreement.
The lawyers for Zervos and Trump submitted a stipulation of discontinuance with no explanation for the decision.
In a statement, Zervos’ attorney, Beth Wilkinson, announced, “Today the parties have ended Zervos v. Trump.” “Ms. Zervos no longer wishes to sue the defendant after five years and has obtained the right to talk freely about her experience. Ms. Zervos has refused to take any compensation and stands by the claims in her complaint.”
Zervos alleged Trump touched her in a Beverly Hills hotel in 2007 and then defamed her throughout the campaign when he denied it.
In a statement released on Friday, the charges were described as “baseless.” “”It is very unfortunate when things like this can happen, but it is so incredibly important to fight for the truth and justice,” Trump said. Victory is the only way to repair one’s reputation!”
Alina Habba, Trump’s lawyer, said on Friday that Zervos made the choice to end the case.
Trump, according to Habba, did not pay Zervos.
Before Christmas, the former president had been compelled to take a deposition.
Moira Penza, Zervos’ attorney, said in a statement about the deposition last month: “We simply don’t feel our client can be further harmed by more delays in the litigation. There are no unresolved problems that we feel would prevent the parties from taking depositions.”
