Former President Donald Trump is scheduled to give a video deposition in a case brought against him, the Trump Organization, his 2016 presidential campaign, and security officials after a 2015 protest during which they say they were assaulted by Trump’s security.
Six protesters are involved in the suit, and a judge denied Trump’s request to throw out a subpoena because he was not yet an elected official at the time of the protest.
“This is a case about Donald Trump’s security guards assaulting peaceful demonstrators on a public sidewalk,” plaintiffs’ lawyer Benjamin Dictor said after the ruling.
Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich claimed that “most of the suit has already been won” and said “further comment will be provided in due time.”
