Trump settles a lawsuit brought by protesters who alleged that his security had attacked them in 2015.
Previous President Trump has settled a claim documented over a long time back by a gathering of dissenters that supposed his own safety officers went after them outside a Trump Pinnacle in New York City.
Although the settlement’s specifics were withheld, Trump’s legal team was pleased with the outcome.
Alina Habba, Trump’s attorney, stated, “Although we were eager to proceed to trial to demonstrate the frivolousness of this case, the parties were ultimately able to come to an amicable resolution.”We are pleased to finally put this matter to rest and are very pleased with the outcome.”
The protesters’ attorney, Benjamin Dictor, suggested that the settlement represented a sort of victory in their case.
In an email to the AP, Dictor stated, “Powerful men may put their names on buildings, but the sidewalk will always belong to the people.”
“Defendants were looking down the barrel of a Bronx jury that were about to be presented with overwhelming evidence in support of plaintiffs’ claims,” Dictor continued.However, plaintiffs are pleased to have settled their claims and received written recognition of their right to protest on the public sidewalk from Donald Trump.
