Melania wins damages from paper who called her a prostitute.

Post by Syl on Wed Apr 12, 2017 5:50 pm

Good for her.

The UK's Daily Mail newspaper has agreed to pay damages and costs to the first lady of the United States over an article about her modelling career.
The newspaper had reported allegations that Melania Trump once worked as an escort, but later retracted the claims.
The story was published during the US election campaign last year.
Mrs Trump accepted damages and an apology from the newspaper at London's High Court.
The article was published by the Daily Mail newspaper, and subsequently the paper's digital operation Mail Online.
Mrs Trump filed a lawsuit against the Daily Mail in the UK, and filed against Mail Online in the US.
The payout settles the case both in New York and the UK, despite London's High Court having no jurisdiction in the US.
The US suit, filed last year, sought damages of $150m (£120m). The amount accepted by Mrs Trump in London was not disclosed in court.

The Mail is the British equivalent to Fox News.
Lies, scandal, buxom beauties in skimpy bikinis and more recently, smear campaigns , mainly against left wing supporters who usually sue and usually win.
I thought they leatned their lesson from Katie Flopkins fuck up last year,  but they never learn.
Their lastest fad is to stalk young female celeb girls in skimpy swimwear to catch a glimpse of washboard abs, pert boobs and peachy posteriors. 
And these girls are usually under 16.
Says a lot about Paul Dacre.


Is he a pervert?

Posting pics of underage girls to titillate readers must surely be against the law.
Which underage girls has he published pics of?

The significant point in this story is:

BBC wrote:The US suit, filed last year, sought damages of $150m (£120m). The amount accepted by Mrs Trump in London was not disclosed in court.

The Trumps have mastered the art of going in with a rumble, but going out with a whimper.

I agree, its weird and smacks of perversion for a paper to follow a young girl around whilst she is on holiday wearing bikinis.
I have never heard of this girl, she is the image of her mum and very pretty....no need to exploit her though, its bad.

After they had smeared Melania Trump I believe some American publications also published the story.
Quill repeated similar on here.....God knows how many others did on different sites and forums.
A womans reputation, especially a woman in such a public position is important.

Not if they settled for pennies on the dollar.  As I say, the Trumps are all noise going into a fight, but they usually end up going quiet.  They're showmen...get the audience going in, don't tell how much it cost on the back side.

Well you would say that Quill because we had a couple of conversations about this in the past when you yourself have implied she was a prostitute. You also said that they would not sue, and if she did it would amount to nothing anyway.

The money isn't important....its the principle, the paper have apologised, paid out, and more importantly its all over the news and internet that they lied about her, which must be the most satisfying thing from her perspective.

I would say that's a job well done. cheers

It should be noted that the Daily Mail never actually called her a prostitute, of course.

You're writing a script.  Forget the script and focus on the logical pattern.  How did Trump get out of the Trump University lawsuit?  He paid out $25-million, right?  Trump has a history of threatening and filing lawsuits to make a big huff'n puff up front, and then he tucks tail and runs.  Remember, in a lawsuit you can subpoena things, and relevance is not a valid objection. They probably got a subpoena duces tecum for Trump's tax returns for the past 10-years.

This is the cut and run phase in Melania's lawsuit.  That's why they have put a non-disclosure clause in the settlement.  If she won big she would be singing it from the hills.

You are trying to deflect.
The story here is Melania's lawsuit nothing to do with any her husband may have brought in the past.
You specifically said she would not sue because she would not win, public figures like here never did.

I doubt the money is important here, her reputation is though....and in winning she has proved the paper was wrong in implying she ever worked in the sex trade.

The sum is publicly unknown but it doesn't sound like a pittance.

"And so the mighty Mail titles have been Trumped.

Well, almost. There are people in the legal profession flabbergasted at the size of the damages that Melania Trump has received from Associated Newspapers."



You had better be careful Quill...this is an open forum, you have said that and worse about her in the past....she might come after you next.  Twisted Evil

To the contrary, I am trying to bring things back into realistic fact.

If she has possession or any rightful claim to the returns--did they file separately(?)--they can subpoena the tax returns. The point is, this is a bad time to be playing with lawsuits, as subpoenas are far-reaching.

I don't think so. If any one knows, someone broke the covenant and the agreement is void.

Me? Wrong? Perish the thought.

She's got a confidentiality clause. Normally plaintiffs want all the publicity they can get, especially when it involves a character issue like prostitution.

So why does she want to keep it quiet? Could it be that it was a 'cost of litigation' settlement?

Figures are already being leaked, between 2 and 3 million.....might be a pittance to them not to most people.

The important thing is she did what she set out to do...clear her reputation.
Well done her.

And the Daily Fail enhanced it's reputation as a lying, smear mongering scandal rag. 
And if anyone forgot, it supported the Nazis 80 years ago and is still alt-right.

Why is it that a Woman who works as an "escort" is automaticly labelled as a Prostitute? Some actually do "escort" men to Dinners, shows,ect to show off as "partners".

$3-million?  Chump change...if that's the case.

Yes that's true Nicko, but there were more slurs against her, they used to word 'escort' slipped in comments  like in her racy past had she worked in the Sex industry   what they really meant was she had been a prostitute.

" In its apology the Daily Mail acknowledged it had published "allegations that she provided services beyond simply modelling".

Have you ever noticed that certain men always resort to calling women by those kind of names?
I've been called those kind of names a few times on forums.

Me too Eddie.

It really annoyed me when Melania was referred to as a prostitute/hooker/escort wink wink on here. Its like someone reads something in a low life paper or magazine, and feels they have the right to repeat it as fact, when they must know there was no basis for this in the first place.

It is the same mentality some use on forums....someone called so and so a slapper or a liar, therefore I will too....sad. No

You gotta toughen up, lady.  This is a debate forum.  Politics and political figures are an important part of the substance here.  All opinions are fair game, as are swear words and harsh language.

We've got a leader of the strongest power on earth who grabs female genitalia for kicks.  Do you wanna pretend that is not going on?  He also gives strong indications that he is in bed with the Russian mafia.  He supposedly takes urine-showers in Moscow.  

If you thought Hitler was a maniac, welcome to the really big time.

I don't think anyone is doubting that Trump is a hideous human being, Quill, it's the fact that everyone is prepared to believe something horrid about someone they don't like.
If the same had been said of Michelle Obama, in the same position - you would never have even entertained it.

The fact that they acknowledged the allegations exist didn't magick the allegations into being -- they were already out there, already with the potential to negatively affect her and her husband. At most, the reporting made more people aware of the issue -- which is the whole point of reporting the news, by the way.

If the same had been said of Michelle Obama, in the same position  - you would never have even entertained it.

I would have responded to that claim the same way I responded to the claim about Melania, which is to start by asking for the evidence of it.

That's why we have investigations....to find out the truth. But where there's smoke, there's fire...and there's really heavy smoke going on here.

And don't give me that, innocent until proven guilty routine. I know you don't believe that.

This is much bigger than whether an arson suspect is guilty. This the strongest, most influential power on earth. This is politics. Melania is up to her eyeballs in it. Even if we err over the details, we are erring on the side of caution. It's better than WW III.

Me too Eddie.

It really annoyed me when Melania was referred to as a prostitute/hooker/escort wink wink  on here. Its like someone reads something in a low life paper or magazine, and feels they have the right to repeat it as fact, when they must know there was no basis for this in the first place.

It is the same mentality some use on forums....someone called so and so a slapper or a liar, therefore I will too....sad. No

You gotta toughen up, lady.  This is a debate forum.  Politics and political figures are an important part of the substance here.  All opinions are fair game, as are swear words and harsh language.

We've got a leader of the strongest power on earth who grabs female genitalia for kicks.  Do you wanna pretend that is not going on?  He also gives strong indications that he is in bed with the Russian mafia.  He supposedly takes urine-showers in Moscow.  

If you thought Hitler was a maniac, welcome to the really big time.

Its not a matter of toughening up is it.
Of course its a debate forum...and debating stuff is great. Actually saying someone is something they are not, just because you have read it in some third rate rag is hardly debate. That's simple being a sheep...baaaaing to order.


By the way...its her husband who is the offensive fanny grabber not her. Its a bit cowardly venting your spleen on a woman who just happens to be married to the despot.

Well you might, but Quill is convinced Trump is on cocoaine because he occasionally sniffs on a YouTube clip.
I am not in favour of battering Melania Trump simply because she's married to the wanker she's married to, she's not really done anything wrong.

And I don't feel one way or the other about her for the record.

As good as...they speculated about it.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3769798/Melania-Trump-retraction.html

"The article discussed whether allegations being made about Melania Trump could negatively affect her husband Donald Trump's presidential bid. Among other things, the article noted that allegations have been made in a book available on Amazon about a modeling agency where Mrs. Trump worked in Milan being 'something like a gentleman's club,' and an article published by Suzy, a Slovenian magazine, alleged that Mrs. Trump's modeling agency in New York, run by Paolo Zampolli, 'operated as an escort agency for wealthy clients.'


The fact that they acknowledged the allegations exist didn't magick the allegations into being -- they were already out there, already with the potential to negatively affect her and her husband. At most, the reporting made more people aware of the issue -- which is the whole point of reporting the news, by the way.

They acknowledged the allegations made from unreliable source, along with damning headline and nude pics of her I believe.
I think they thought they were being smart in the way they reported the story, sort of saying it all under the guise of they wasn't really.
Not that smart though....as the outcome has proven.

Good point. When you said Michelle Obama looked like a man (something like that) people piled in to her defence (I was one of them) I bet Quill was too.
Melania it seems is not so protected.

With substantial probable cause regarding the cocaine, I'm proud to say.  I've made that case elsewhere, and the evidence is overwhelming.  Look...you go to the Grand Jury with what you have.  You put it out there, and let them judge. I'm a prosecutor...I make a case, I don't have the ultimate decision.

She sleeps on silk sheets, in three different mansions.  She is carted around by an Air Force and the Marines, in the plushest aircraft available.  She gets to dine those expensive meals, all on the government dole.  That's MY money, there.  

You're a conservative...isn't it my right to fire her ass if I want to fire her ass?  Same with her husband, his daughter, son-in-law, and two other sons...fire their asses if I don't like the job they are doing.

Sorry Quill but you calling me a conservative because you feel like an arse makes you look like a bigger arse.

I've never voted conservative - now you're thrice an arse.

And for the record? With your supposed money and education and what you do for a living....you're far more in the conservative world than me.

You conservative arse

So Quill.....just say you are a highly paid lawyer working for the government, or even a bin man being paid from the local council.......if you did your job badly would people be entitled to call your wife a useless slapper?

"Thrice an arse?" My money? My education? My profession?

Eddie, you are engaging in hate speech. You are attacking my status, and not the topic of this thread. Hate speech is in violation of the rules of this site. Please refrain.

You are a conservative in your tendencies. You don't believe in innocent until proven guilty. You don't believe in trials. You pick and choose who is a victim and who is a villain. It's fair for me to point out the leanings you, yourself, have admitted to.

Now let's get back to the topic...you were defending rich bitches and mafia government leaders, I believe.

You last sentence speaks for itself. You're upset and allowing your anger to cloud your judgment. You know, you warn us all about that!

You're also being silly because you're claming things I never said and you must know this, as a lawyer, I simply can't debate with you if you claim things I've never said?

So I'll wait for you to cool off.

My last sentence? You don't want to get back on topic? Well, if you abandon the topic, I guess you are admitting my point.

I'll move on.
