Proceedings in a federal lawsuit filed in New York, accusing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump of repeatedly raping a 13-year-old girl over 20 years ago at several Upper East Side parties hosted by convicted sex offender and notorious billionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein, have been voluntarily dismissed by the complainant.
A pretrial conference scheduled for 9 September 2016 was delayed, and on 16 September 2016, Thomas Francis Meagher, the attorney for the anonymous plaintiff (identified as “Jane Doe”), filed a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal without prejudice with the court.
However, that doesn’t mean the case is necessarily going away for good. According to Meagher, the plaintiff will be filing a new lawsuit. “An additional witness has been identified and her declaration will accompany the new complaint,” he said.
