Carroll also sued Donald Trump for defamation, after he accused her of lying when she came forward about the alleged assault.

Columnist E. Jean Carroll sued former US President Donald Trump in New York state for allegedly raping her in the 1990s.

Carroll, 78, is one of the first to file a lawsuit under the Adult Survivors Lawwhich entered into force this Thursday.

State law allows a one year period for victims to file sexual assault lawsuits in New York for claims that would otherwise have exceeded the limitations of the statutes.

“This lawsuit isn’t just for me, it’s for all the women who have been groped, grabbed, mutilated, assaulted, degraded, and dragged through the mud by a powerful man,” Carroll wrote announcing the lawsuit on her Twitter account.
