A jury has awarded an additional 83.3 million US dollars (£65.5m) to former columnist E Jean Carroll, who says former president Donald Trump damaged her reputation by calling her a liar after she accused him of sexual assault.
Friday’s verdict was the second time in nine months that a jury addressed Ms Carroll’s claim that Trump assaulted her in a New York City department store in 1996.
Another jury last May found Trump liable for sexual abuse and ordered him to pay 5.0 million dollars.
This defamation trial was over things Trump said about Carroll while he was president.
Trump continues to insist he was falsely accused.
