New York, July 16 (RHC)-- U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is facing questions about a federal lawsuit in which a woman accuses Trump of raping her in 1994 when she was only 13 years old.
The lawsuit alleges Trump raped her at a party hosted by billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein has been jailed on charges of soliciting sex from a minor and has paid out dozens of settlements over allegations of sexual assault at his infamous parties. Donald Trump has denied the allegations in the lawsuit, which was refiled in Manhattan federal court after it was dismissed by a judge in California last month.
The suit has largely been ignored by mainstream media or dismissed as "bizarre." But lawyer and author Lisa Bloom writes: "If the Bill Cosby case has taught us anything, it is to not disregard rape cases against famous men."
Meanwhile, the University of Connecticut trustees voted unanimously to revoke Bill Cosby’s honorary degree in light of accusations from more than 50 women that Cosby drugged and raped them, some in cases dating back decades.
