Author Who Claims Trump is Millionaire Prevails in Defamation Lawsuit by Trump

Who doesn’t know The Donald?
Trump doesn’t like being called a fake billionaire. So he naturally brought a defamation suit against the author of the 2005 book “Trump Nation” because the book pegged Trumps net worth between $150 and $200 billion dollars. Now comes word that a NJ appeals court has rejected Trump’s suit (via WSJ.com). Under New Jersey law, actual malice must be present to support a claim of defamation by Trump. Here, the Court found no malice existed.
