Melania Trump Lawsuit Says 'Daily Mail' Article Cost Her Millions in Business

Melania Trump Lawsuit Says 'Daily Mail' Article Cost Her Millions in Business

Trump on Monday refiled a $150 million libel lawsuit against the Daily Mail after the suit was previously dismissed in Maryland on judicial grounds. Trump's new suit has been filed with the New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan.

Her lawyers argue that the report, which was later retracted, has meant that Melania Trump's "brand has lost significant value, and major business opportunities that were otherwise available to her have been lost and/or significantly impacted".

Mrs Trump had a "unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" to launch numerous product lines, including jewellery, apparel, shoes and cosmetics at a time when she is "one of the most photographed women in the world", according to the new lawsuit.

Now, Charles Harder, Trump's attorney, says the suit has been settled for a "substantial sum", according to Buzzfeed. The blog post was published in the Daily Meal online tabloid, which later ran a retraction of the post. Generally, the first lady uses her position as a way of giving back the public.

"The economic damage to Plaintiff's brand, and licensing, markeying and endorsement opportunities caused by the publication of Mail Online's defamatory article is multiple millions of dollars".

Harder also represented Hulk Hogan in the professional wrestler's successful lawsuit against Gawker Media over a sex tape, which resulted in the company's bankruptcy and sale.

The Daily Mail has since retracted the story in question, which cited a Slovenian magazine's report that a modelling agency Trump worked with in NY in the 1990s also served as an escort business offering sexual services.

In his own statement, Tarpley said his story, published a year ago, was "replete with false and defamatory statements" about Melania Trump.

The new lawsuit in NY was seen as a refile of the Maryland case in a new jurisdiction.

The new First Lady tried to grab her son's hand in front of the world's cameras but the 10-year-old was having none of it. The lawyer even suggested that the Congress or the White House should investigate this breach of rules.

One possible market indicator: Demand for Ivanka Trump-branded merchandise seems to have cooled, as retailers including Nordstrom, Belk, and Nieman Marcus have recently dropped her products from their websites.
