Trump's attorneys have claimed the suit "has no legal merit", and were "fame-seeking accusations".
Zervos's representation said they were told by Trump's campaign all relevant documents would be preserved; Trump lawyers are working to dismiss the lawsuit on the grounds it can't proceed against a sitting president.
During her October 2016 press conference, Zervos said Trump treated her like "an object", and that after hearing leaked audio of him boasting about groping and kissing women without their consent and his denials of inappropriate sexual conduct, she felt she had to speak out. Zervos filed her suit in New York Supreme Court back on January 17, three days before Trump became the 45th President of the United States.
The footage, first unearthed by the NowThis website, shows Mr Trump lecturing at a real estate seminar, purportedly in 2007, where a woman in the audience asks him how many jets he owns and how she can apply to be his flight attendant.
Assange colluded with Russian Federation to help Trump win: Hillary
Asked about Clinton during a press conference at the White House that afternoon, Trump told reporters, "Oh, I hope Hillary runs". I'm really, really sorry about that.
He denied the accusation and called her a liar. The allegedly defamatory statements were made during a national political campaign that involved heated political debate in political forums.
His legal counselors likewise said if the case isn't dropped in any event it ought to be remained until the point that he leaves office.
Let's not forget that Donald has been accused by more than a dozen women of sexual misconduct. They also said the subpoena was too broad, and demanded "irrelevant information intended exclusively to harass the President". "Indeed, Ms. Allred herself has questioned how the President could run the country if faced with broad discovery". Trump has until October 31 to respond to the subpoena.
"Contrary to Defendants' spin, this case is not about robust political debate". "She came forward to report the details of Defendants' unwanted sexual battery only after he repeatedly lied publicly about his behavior".
Neither the White House nor the Trump campaign have immediately returned Bustle's request for a comment.
According to court filings unearthed by BuzzFeed, the subpoena was actually issued to the Trump campaign in March.
