Court orders Ivanka Trump to testify

WASHINGTON D.C. – US President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka must give testimony later this year in a lawsuit against her apparel company, which is accused of lifting designs from a celebrated Italian shoemaker, a US judge ruled.

In a court order issued on Friday, New York District Judge Katherine Forrest rejected Trump’s assertion that she should be exempted from having to appear at a deposition in the case, because of the demands on her time as a senior White House official.

Despite “the obvious time constraints that Ms. Trump must currently have…it is nonetheless true that she is alleged to have personal involvement in the events at issue in this lawsuit,” Forrest wrote in her three-page ruling. (AFP)
