Trump lawyers demand trial in defamation case

theapprentice_img

CAMDEN, New Jersey (Reuters) – Lawyers for real estate mogul Donald Trump urged a judge on Monday to allow his defamation case against a journalist to go forward, saying the writer damaged his reputation by contending he is not a billionaire.

But lawyers for author Timothy O’Brien and his publisher, Time Warner Inc unit Warner Books, denied Trump had lost business opportunities as a result of the 2005 book, and urged New Jersey Superior Court Judge Michele Fox to dismiss the lawsuit.

Fox, after a two-hour hearing, said she would rule within two months on whether the case should be thrown out or go to a jury trial in October.

Trump, who filed the lawsuit in 2006 and is seeking billions in damages, did not attend the proceedings.

The book, “Trump Nation: The Art of Being the Donald,” cited three unnamed sources estimating Trump’s worth at $150 million to $250 million, much less than the billions that the developer and television personality has said he is worth.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal published on Monday, Trump said he is worth $5 billion, not counting the value of his brand name.

That follows a deposition given to O’Brien’s lawyers in which Trump put his wealth at more than $4 billion, the Journal said.

In 2005, Deutsche Bank estimated his net worth as $788 million in a calculation made for the bank’s underwriting of a $640 million construction loan for some of Trump’s Chicago properties, the newspaper reported.

In court, Trump attorney William Tambussi attacked the credibility of O’Brien’s anonymous sources, saying their estimates of his client’s net worth widely varied.

“The same source can’t go from $60 million to $250 million and be considered reliable,” Tambussi said.

Trump’s reputation was damaged by the book’s statements including that he was the “court jester of the American business scene” and that “As a businessman, he is a train wreck,” Tambussi told the court.

Andrew Ceresney, an attorney for O’Brien, said his client had worked with the sources cited in his book before, and was confident that they had inside knowledge of Trump’s finances. He said O’Brien had not acted maliciously.

Ceresney also said Trump had not lost business opportunities as a result of the book, which he said did not sell very well. He questioned Trump’s claim that he had lost four overseas development projects as a result of negative publicity surrounding the book.

“There is no evidence in the record that these four even existed, save for Mr. Trump’s own self-serving statements,” Ceresney said.

Michael Jackson a fost dignosticat cu cancer de piele

Legenda vie a muzicii pop, Michael Jackson a fost diagnosticat de curand cu cancer de piele, in varianta incipienta, insa actorul in varsta de 50 de ani este determinat sa se vindece total.
Medicii au descoperit celule canceroase in partea de sus a corpului si a fetei, dupa ce Michael a fost supus unor investigatii amanuntite. Acesta spera intr-o refacere completa, pentru a se putea reintoarce in iulie pe scena, perioada in care si-a programat un tur de forta, in care va sustine 50 de concerte, la Londra. Biletele pentru toate spectacolele au fost vandute deja, reintoarcerea sa pe planul muzical valorand peste 150 de milioane de dolari.

Potrivit The Sun, cantaretul este ingrijorat, insa medicii din Beverly Hills i-au dat asigurari ca se poate trata pana la data inceperii concertelor. Jacko, a primit diagnosticul luna trecuta, in ultima vreme el fiind vazut cu fata si capul acoperite cu o masca dermatologica si o casca. De asemenea declansarea bolii sale este pusa pe seama unei eruptii de pete pe piele (gen vitiligo), o boala care afecteaza pigmentarea.

Vedeta a fost avertizata de catre US Federal Drug Administration ca aceasta ar putea fi o potentiala consecinta a incercarii sale de a-si albi pielea, insa Michael Jackson neaga ca ar fi folosit vreodata produse de depigmentare a pielii.

In prezent acesta se afla in pregatiri intense in LA, lucrand zilnic la pasii sai faimosi pentru a nu-si dezamagii fanii in concertele de peste 2 ore pe care si le-a programat in acest tur. El a promis ca va schimba peste 22 de costume si nu va uita nici de celebrul sau dans „zomby”, din Thriller. Managerul sau Dr Tomhe a declarat ca nu mai are timp decat pentru copiii sai Prince, 11, Paris Katherine, 10 si Prince Michael II, in varsta de 5 ani.

http://www2.tvr.ro/eurovision/

Pregătirile pentru concursul Eurovision 2009 se află pe ultima sută de metri. În această seară, începând cu ora 22, la Moscova va avea loc prima semifinala, la care va participa şi reprezentanta României, Elena, cu piesa “The Balkan Girls”.

TVR 1 va transmite în direct acest eveniment.

Participanţii s-au declarat mulţumiţi de conditiile tehnice de pe scena Arena Olimpiysky. Totul este pus la punct în cel mai mic amănunt, mai rămâne doar votul telespectatorilor care trebuie să îşi aleagă interpretul preferat la unul din numerele de telefon, afişate pe ecranele televiziunilor naţionale care vor transmite Eurovisionul. Echipa României este plină de optimism.

Cele două semifinale şi marea finală de sâmbătă vor fi transmise în direct pe TVR1, TVR Internaţional şi pe TVR HD în condiţii excepţionale de sunet şi imagine.

În ediţia din acest an, în prima semifinală Eurovision, de marţi, 12 mai, vor avea drept de vot numai telespectatorii din ţările participante la prima semifinală, adică: Muntenegru, Cehia, Belgia, Belarus, Suedia, Armenia, Andora, Elveţia, Turcia, Israel, Bulgaria, Islanda, Macedonia, România, Finlanda, Portugalia, Malta, Bosnia – Herţegovina, la care se adaugă şi două ţări dintre cele cinci aflate direct în finală: Anglia şi Germania.

Telespectatorii români din străinătate o vor putea vota pe Elena numai daca se află marţi seara în una dintre ţările mai sus menţionate şi dacă vor urmări transmisia televiziunii publice din ţara respectivă. Numai în acest mod vor afla numerele de telefon alocate de fiecare ţară piesei României.
