How an “Apprentice” contestant’s lawsuit could haunt Trump

NEW YORK (AP) — Former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos isn’t asking for much in her defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump.

She wants less than $3,000 and an apology for what she says were unwanted sexual advances.

But if the lawsuit in a New York court continues, it could land Trump in the same cycle of depositions and document discovery that caused so much trouble for President Bill Clinton after he was sued by Paula Jones.

That would mean he would have to answer potentially embarrassing questions under oath about his relationships with women.

Trump’s attempts to get the lawsuit tossed out have failed so far, but the battle isn’t over yet.

The president’s lawyers say they will appeal a judge’s recent ruling that the case could go forward while Trump is in office.
