NEW YORK, Nov 24 (Reuters) - Donald Trump was sued for defamation a second time on Thursday by a writer who accused the former U.S.

Carroll, 78, brought the battery claim under New York's Adult Survivors Act, a new law giving sexual assault victims a one-year window to sue their alleged abusers, even if the abuse occurred long ago and statutes of limitations have expired.

12 post on his Truth Social account, calling Carroll's claim a "hoax" and "lie," prompting the new defamation claim.

government, which has sovereign immunity from defamation claims, could be substituted for Trump as a defendant, Carroll's first lawsuit would fail.

That would likely not affect her second lawsuit because Trump is a private citizen, having left the White House in January 2021.

To support her battery claim, she said Trump caused her lasting psychological harm, and left her unable to sustain a romantic relationship.

She also told the judge a longer delay made sense because Trump had not hired a lawyer for the second lawsuit.
