Trump can't delay lawsuit from 'Apprentice' contestant

Former "Apprentice" contestant Summer Zervos can proceed with her defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump, at least for now, a court said on Thursday.

The ruling by the state Supreme Court's appellate division means Zervos' lawyers can press ahead with a demand for Trump campaign documents and other records while they await another appeals court decision that is likely months away.

"We look forward to proving Ms. Zervos's claim that (the) defendant lied when he maliciously attacked her for reporting his sexually abusive behavior," said her lawyer Mariann Wang.

Trump's lawyers had asked to put the case on ice until the appeals court decides whether to dismiss it or postpone it past his presidency, a decision likely to take at least until fall.

Trump's lawyer in the case, Marc Kasowitz, said there was "no valid reason" for the court to deny the stay while it decided the underlying issue of whether a private citizen can sue a sitting president in a state court.

"Respectfully, the Appellate Division's order denying a stay of the case pending the resolution of this key issue is incorrect," he said.

Zervos, a California restaurateur, appeared on "The Apprentice," Trump's former show, in 2006. She says he subjected her to unwanted groping and kisses when she sought career advice in 2007.

Trump has denied her allegations, which she first made publicly during his campaign in 2016. He retweeted a message that included her photo and described her claims as a "hoax."

Zervos's lawsuit doesn't claim sexual harassment; the legal time clock for such a case ran out years ago. Instead, she's suing Trump for calling her a liar, saying it hurt her reputation.

She's seeking a retraction, an apology and compensatory and punitive damages.

As part of their case, her lawyers are pursuing a range of information about Trump's behavior and comments about women.

The attorneys have issued a subpoena for any unaired "Apprentice" footage that features Zervos or Trump talking about her or discussing other female contestants in a sexual or inappropriate way.

Zervos's lawyers also are seeking Trump campaign documents concerning not only Zervos but any woman who has accused Trump of inappropriate touching, as well as any campaign records referring to the release of a 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape in which Trump boasted about grabbing women.

Zervos's attorneys have indicated they want to question the president under oath.

Trump's attorneys have said his remarks were "non-defamatory opinions."

Their efforts to get the case thrown out, or at least held off until he's out of office, have been unsuccessful. A Manhattan judge denied the request in March, saying "no one is above the law." But they are poised to make their arguments in appellate court this fall.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1997 that President Bill Clinton wasn't immune from a sexual-harassment lawsuit filed against him in a federal court, but it left undecided the issue of whether a president could be sued in a state court.

Kasowitz said the New York appeals court's decision to deny a stay was "completely and unjustifiably contrary to the stays the courts uniformly granted" as Clinton's case moved through the courts.

Chabon, Erdrich among contributors to ACLU anthology

Michael Chabon, Louise Erdrich and Ann Patchett are among the contributors to an anthology commemorating the upcoming 100th anniversary of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Simon & Schuster announced Thursday that the book is currently untitled and will be published in 2020, 100 years after the ACLU's founding. Chabon and his wife and fellow author, Ayelet Waldman, are serving as co-editors. Writers will be contributing essays on major court cases, whether Lauren Groff on the landmark abortion decision Roe v. Wade or Salman Rushdie on the Pentagon Papers ruling, New York Times Co. v. United States.

The book's editors and literary agents are contributing proceeds to the ACLU.

Fox names veteran exec Suzanne Scott as new CEO

Fox News' parent company appointed Suzanne Scott chief executive officer on Thursday, giving the popular news network and its business offshoot its first sole leader since the late Roger Ailes was ousted in 2016 under a cloud of sexual misconduct allegations.

Scott, who has been with Fox News Channel since its 1996 launch, most recently has been president of programming. Jack Abernethy, who had been Fox News co-president and also runs the Fox-owned television stations, will remain in the latter post. Jay Wallace was named president and executive editor of Fox News, giving him control of the networks' editorial operations and reporting to Scott.

The moves came a day after parent 21st Century Fox announced that Lachlan Murdoch will become chairman and CEO of that streamlined company.

Fox News Channel has thrived during the Trump administration, as has MSNBC, its ideological opposite during prime-time programming. Despite losing Bill O'Reilly to sexual misconduct charges and Megyn Kelly to NBC, Fox's prime-time lineup usually tops all cable networks in ratings. Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham routinely appeal to Trump supporters, while Sean Hannity rules as a vocal defender of Trump and regularly speaks to him on the phone, according to reports.

It was also revealed this week that 21st Century Fox had signed off on a $10 million settlement with 18 former Fox News Channel employees who had sued the company for either racial or gender discrimination.

That wipes one worry off Scott's mind, and it's hard not to see the appointment of a woman to the role Ailes once held as sending a message in the #MeToo era.

But she's no newcomer. Scott is well-steeped in Fox's culture, having migrated to the company from CNBC, as Ailes did, and that's sure to lead to questions about whether she was in a position to improve working conditions. She worked on Greta Van Susteren's program when it aired on Fox, and helped create the "Outnumbered" program that airs at noon, and programs hosted by Dana Perino and Martha MacCallum.

Scott, who was not made available for comment, said in a statement that she is "incredibly honored and humbled to take on this new role."

She'll lead Fox as it tries to maintain its dominance in a market where Newsmax and Sinclair Broadcasting Group are becoming more aggressive in seeking a conservative audience.

As co-president, Abernethy appointed new leadership in Fox's human resources department and a new chief counsel.

The selection of Scott and Wallace represented a clear thumbs-up for how the network is being run. Wallace has also been with Fox News Channel since its beginning, and most recently has overseen the network's news operations. The promotion will also put him in charge of the opinion programming.

New Whitney Houston doc trailer shows singer saying Paula Abdul is ‘singing off-key on the record’

The Whitney Houston documentary “Whitney” won’t arrive until July 6, but based on the latest trailer, it looks riveting.

The trailer includes footage of Houston performing – sometimes radiant, other times appearing to be in the clutches of the drug addiction that plagued her. 

In one clip, Houston props herself up on a couch and says, “People think it’s so easy, and it’s not.” In the same moment, she criticizes another singer, saying, “Paula Abdul ain’t (expletive). That girl is singing off-key on the record.”

Royal wedding: How did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle meet?

American actress Meghan Markle and Britain’s Prince Harry are set to wed Saturday, almost two years after a mutual friend set them up on a blind date in London.

>> Read more trending news

Prince Harry told BBC News in November that he had never watched the show Markle is best known for, USA’s “Suits,” before he met the California-born actress in July 2016.

“I was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her and there she was sitting there,” Prince Harry said. “I thought, I am really going to have to up my game here.”

Markle told BBC News that, as an American, she knew little about the prince before their first date.

“You know, because I’m from the States, you don’t grow up with the same understanding of the royal family,” Markle said. “While I now understand very clearly there is a global interest there, I didn’t know much about him.”

She told the news network that she had only one question for the friend who set them up.

“I said, ‘Well, is he nice?’ Because if he wasn’t kind, then it didn’t seem like it would make sense,” she said.

The prince told BBC News he convinced Markle to join him in Botswana a few weeks after their first meeting. For five days, the couple camped out under the stars.

"We were really by ourselves, which was crucial to me to make sure we had a chance to get to know each other," Prince Harry told BBC News.

Knock, knock: Browns there; team set for HBO's 'Hard Knocks'

Ready or not, the Cleveland Browns are getting their close-up.

Coming off a historic, dismal 0-16 season, the Browns have been chosen to appear on HBO's popular "Hard Knocks" series that gives NFL fans a behind-the-scenes look at training camp.

The Browns have turned down previous opportunities to be on the award-winning series. But with renewed optimism around Cleveland following the recent draft, and the selection of quarterback Baker Mayfield, the team is granting HBO unlimited access to its upcoming camp.

Cleveland is the 13th franchise to participate in "Hard Knocks," which began in 2001 with the Baltimore Ravens. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were featured last summer.

Although they've won only one game the past two seasons under coach Hue Jackson, the Browns see the show as a possibility to highlight some of their younger players and put a positive spin on their rebuild.

And for HBO, Mayfield's quest to win the starting job is just one of several juicy story lines.

"NFL Films has always been exceptional at bringing fans closer to the game and they do an outstanding job with every show they produce, including HBO's Hard Knocks," Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam said. "We have been asked multiple times about being featured on Hard Knocks, and we really felt like it was our turn this year and the timing was right. We want to be great partners in this league, and we also recognize Hard Knocks gives fans a special opportunity to learn more about our team and players."

HBO's cameras are certain to focus on Mayfield, the brash Heisman Trophy winner from Oklahoma the Browns chose over other quarterbacks. Mayfield is expected to back up Tyrod Taylor this season, but their competition could make for the kind compelling TV that has made the series a must-watch for football junkies.

A 30-person film crew will be at the team's training facility in Berea to record more than 2,000 hours of footage for the five-segment series that will debut Aug. 7.

The Browns have some good young players who are not well known outside Cleveland. But "Hard Knocks" will give national exposure to budding stars like defensive end Myles Garrett, Mayfield and safety Jabrill Peppers and give the network a chance to tell the well-documented story of former Pro Bowl wide receiver Josh Gordon, who has missed most of the past three seasons because of drug suspensions.

Mayfield has experience in front of the cameras. He was recently featured in a recent documentary series as he prepared for the draft, and feels the Browns can make "Hard Knocks" a positive experience.

"For me looking at it, and us as a team, I'd say it can be good if you handle it right. I'll just say that," he said on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "If you think about it as a way to get on camera and try to show off and do certain things and handle it the wrong way then that can be very negative, it can be a distraction. But if you use it as a sense of, 'OK, I got to block out everything else and just focus on playing ball,' then that can be a great thing for us."

Jackson and Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams have both been on "Hard Knocks" — Jackson with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2013 and Williams with the Los Angeles Rams in 2016.

"Being able to bring our fans in so they can get to know our players and our organization in a different way will be a huge positive for us," Jackson said. "I want people to see how much our players and coaches care, how hard they work and how badly they want to win for Cleveland. This will be a great opportunity for our team."

Browns general manager John Dorsey had reservations about the series, but feels the team is equipped to handle the added scrutiny.

"Once we sat down and talked about it as an organization, I feel a lot better and understand why the time is right," said Dorsey, who has been overhauling the team since being hired in December. "Hue and I both feel like this team is in a good place and that we are in the process of building something that will lead to success."

Miss America picks women for leadership spots

The Miss America Organization is putting women in its three top leadership positions following an email scandal in which male officials were caught making vulgar and insulting comments about past winners of the beauty pageant.

The organization told The Associated Press Thursday it is appointing Regina Hopper as president and CEO of the Miss America Organization, and Marjorie Vincent-Tripp as chairwoman of the board of the Miss America Foundation.

Coupled with Gretchen Carlson leading the Miss America Organization's board of trustees, the group is moving on from the email scandal with women firmly in charge.

"By putting female leadership in place, we hope to send a strong signal." Hopper told the AP. "We want young women to see Miss America as a place where they can come and benefit and be empowered."

Hopper, a former Miss Arkansas, attorney and TV journalist, replaces Sam Haskell, whose emails about the intellect, appearance and sex lives of former Miss Americas led to his departure and a revamping of the group's top leadership in December. She is a former correspondent for CBS News, where she won an Emmy for her work on the show "48 Hours."

The scandal began when the Huffington Post published leaked emails showing pageant officials ridiculing past Miss Americas, including crass and sometimes vulgar comments about them. The emails included one that used a vulgar term for female genitalia to refer to past Miss America winners, one that wished that a particular former Miss America had died and others that speculated about how many sex partners one former Miss America has had.

Haskell declined to comment on the new leadership.

Vincent-Tripp, who was Miss America 1991, formerly served on the Miss America Board of Trustees. She is an assistant attorney general in Florida, and formerly worked as a TV journalist. As chair of the Miss America Foundation, she is responsible for educating the public about the foundation's values and building public support.

Vincent-Tripp replaces Lanny Griffith, who along with MAO chair Lynn Weidner stepped down during the transition.

Carlson, Miss America 1989, was named chairwoman of the Miss America board in January after the email scandal rocked the organization. Her sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes led to his departure.

Hopper said she hopes young women will realize that Miss America is now being led by women who have been through the program and have been helped by it, and that they will seek the same benefits from it.

Larry Hoffer, a volunteer at local and state pageants, said he is eager to see what the new leaders' vision will be and expects the women will leave the organization stronger.

"I think it's an excellent, excellent move," Hoffer said. "For a pageant that is strictly about empowering women to have not had female leadership for all of these years just never seemed to work. You basically had men deciding how women should be treated and featured on the telecast and how Miss America should be portrayed in the media. Having these women lead such a major scholarship organization shows that women are being taken seriously."

Jill Cook, a local pageant volunteer, said she saw the new appointments as "a step forward" for Miss America. She applauded the women's pedigrees and their success both in the pageant world and beyond.

The Latest: Meghan Markle's mother has tea with the royals

The Latest on the preparation for the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (all times local):

9:50 p.m.

Meghan Markle's mother Doria Ragland has had a series of whirlwind visits with senior royals since her arrival from California.

She met Prince Harry's brother, Prince William, and his wife Kate and their two oldest children, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3, at Windsor Castle on Thursday afternoon.

Palace officials said Harry and Meghan Markle were also present, and that the meeting was followed by a rehearsal dinner.

Ragland also had tea with Harry's father Prince Charles and his wife Camilla on Wednesday. She has not yet met Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, but Buckingham Palace officials said she will meet the queen for tea on Friday at Windsor Castle.

Officials did not say if Prince Philip, the queen's husband, will be present at that meeting. He is recovering from hip replacement surgery.

6:20 p.m.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who have remained out of the public eye in recent days, have been spotted being driven into the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Britain's Press Association indicated they were expected to have tea Thursday with Queen Elizabeth II and may be joined by Markle's mother, Doria Ragland. No details about the meeting were officially released.

The news came as British military personnel rehearsed for a gala procession through Windsor that will follow Saturday's wedding ceremony in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, which will be televised live around the world.

Also Thursday, Markle said her father will not be able to attend her wedding to Harry due to health problems.

11:40 a.m.

Meghan Markle says her father will not be attending her wedding to Prince Harry, and has expressed hope that he can be "given the space" to focus on his health.

Kensington Palace's statement Thursday puts to rest days of speculation about whether Markle's father, Thomas, would walk her down the aisle — as the palace had previously said. 

His participation was put into doubt after news site TMZ reported he would not attend because of embarrassment regarding paparazzi photographs. It later reported that he was having heart surgery.

Markle says she would like "to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday."

10:10 a.m.

Royal wedding organizers are preparing for a rehearsal of the proceedings to take place in Windsor — but without the bride and groom.

Planners will use Thursday's practice session to finalize some of the details of Saturday's gala wedding at St. George's Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The festivities will include a 25-minute carriage ride outside the castle grounds by the newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after the ceremony is concluded.

A large military contingent will also take part, reflecting Harry's years of military service.

It is not clear who will walk Markle down the aisle. Her father Thomas Markle had been selected for that role but is reportedly ill with heart problems.

Markle's mother Doria Ragland may take Thomas Markle's place if needed.
