NEW YORK (AP) – A former magazine columnist who accuses former President Donald Trump of raping her in a department store testified that she didn’t call police because she is a “member of the silent generation” who was taught not to complain.

E. Jean Carroll’s remarks on Monday came during cross-examination from Trump’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina. Trump has not attended the trial, and has vigorously denied the claims since they were first publicly made in 2019.

Testimony resumed shortly after Judge Lewis A. Kaplan denied Tacopina’s request for a mistrial. The lawyer cited rulings he says were slanted in favor of Carroll.
