Trump denied Zervos' claims.

While the media glare has been fixed on Stormy Daniels' $130,000 "hush money" beef with Trump, the Zervos case has advanced more rapidly.

Zervos' lawyers have been investigating records of how officials treated multiple claims of sexual harassment in the waning weeks of the presidential campaign.

Lawyers for the parties were in Manhattan Supreme Court on Tuesday to set deadlines for the case including depositions for Trump and Zervos.

The suit was filed in a state court in Manhattan previous year by Summer Zervos, a contender on "The Apprentice" in 2005 who alleges Trump ambushed her on more than one occasion starting in 2007, kissing her on the mouth, touching her breast and pressing his genitals against her.

He specifically contested Ms Zervos's allegations in a statement and retweeted a message that included her photo and described her claims as a "hoax".

"No one is above the law", the judge wrote then.

Zervos has sued the president for saying her sexual misconduct claims were lies.

An attorney for Summer Zervos, a former contestant on "The Apprentice" who accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her in 2007 and is now suing the president for defamation, is fighting back against the Trump campaign's refusal to turn over any documents of other women who may have accused Trump of inappropriate behavior.

Terminal breast cancer beaten by remarkable therapy?
A new Indiana University School of Medicine research center will focus on aggressive and hard-to-treat breast cancers. In a lab, Rosenberg's team grew those few immune cells into billions, then injected them into Perkins' bloodstream.

Kasowitz said at Tuesday's hearing that he may seek to exclude from the case any evidence about other women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct, though he did not make a formal motion.

Zervos pursued her defamation lawsuit against Trump on the accusation that he damaged her reputation by calling her liar.

Zervos is one of two women with civil cases against Trump that continue to move ahead.

It's not uncommon for the opposing sides in a lawsuit to enter into such confidentiality agreements in order to facilitate the exchange of information, but Wang said Trump's lawyers initially signaled they wanted something that would seal a swath of filings in the case.

Besides the campaign records, Zervos' lawyers have subpoenaed other information including any "Apprentice" material that features Trump talking about Zervos or discussing other female contestants in a sexual or inappropriate way.

Trump's lawyers have argued that he should be immune from the litigation under the Constitution, and are trying to overturn a March decision by Schecter denying their request to throw out the case on those grounds.

Trump is facing legal pressure from other women as well.
