Former US president Donald Trump is expected to testify Wednesday in a defamation case pitting him against a prominent American columnist who says he raped her in the 1990s.
E. Jean Carroll, 78, alleges that Trump sexually assaulted her in a New York department store.
Last week, a New York federal court judge rejected a motion by Trump, who has denied the accusation, to further delay his deposition.
Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled that Carroll’s and Trump’s depositions should be held on October 14 and 19, respectively.
It is not known if Carroll testified on Friday, and neither of the parties’ lawyers responded to comment requests from AFP.
