President Donald Trump’s legal dispute with a former “Apprentice” candidate who claims he groped her may be heading closer to a trial after a New York appeals court rejected his request to put the case on hold.

Trump has until May 29 to respond to Summer Zervos’s subpoena seeking documents concerning “any woman alleging that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately.” At least 19 women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct. He’s denied all those claims.
