The Summer Zervos sexual assault allegations and lawsuit against Donald Trump, explained - 2018-03-26
"Summer Zervos is one of many women who has been subjected to unwanted sexual touching by Donald J. Trump."
So begins the defamation lawsuit filed by Zervos, a restaurant owner and former contestant on The Apprentice, who says Trump sexually assaulted her in 2007 and then called her a liar when she spoke out about it in 2016.
Zervos's case centers on a disturbing account of sexual assault, an important distinction from two other high-profile legal cases involving women and Trump. Porn actress Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal (who is suing the company that publishes the National Enquirer) say they had consensual affairs with Trump.
