A writer who accused former US president Donald Trump of rape has filed a lawsuit against him minutes after a new New York law allowing sexual violence victims to sue over decades-old attacks came into effect.

E Jean Carroll's lawyer filed the legal papers electronically as the Adult Survivor's Act temporarily lifted the state's deadlines for suing over sexual assault.

She is seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages for pain and suffering, psychological harms, dignity loss and reputation damage.

Good on her. 
Also … the law is only temporary? 

"This window will be open for one year before the previous time limits are brought back."

Yeah, that's weird.

Questioned for a lawsuit, former President Donald Trump angrily hurled insults and threatened to sue the columnist who accused him of raping her in a department store in the 1990s, according to excerpts of his videotaped testimony unsealed by a court on Friday. 

Portions of his 5 1/2-hour October deposition in a lawsuit filed by columnist E. Jean Carroll were released publicly after a federal judge rejected his lawyers' request that it remained sealed. She said that I did something to her that never took place.

There was not anything. I know nothing about this nut job,” he said, according to the transcript. 

The excerpts reveal a contentious battle between Trump and Roberta Kaplan, a lawyer for Carroll, who questioned him as Trump called the former longtime Elle magazine columnist the perpetrator of “a complete scam” in which she described the rape as she “was promoting a really crummy book.

Trump claiming that she had rape fantasies made me raise my eyebrow.  That statement alone implies a level of closeness that Trump previously denied.
