"We understand it should be orderly and we want to cooperate with the defendant in good faith", Mariann Wang, a lawyer for Summer Zervos, an Apprentice contestant, told the judge Tuesday.

New York State Supreme Court Judge Jennifer Schecter set the timeline on Tuesday for evidence and other procedures in the case brought by Summer Zervos, a former contestant on Trump's reality TV show The Apprentice. Clinton's denial eventually led to his impeachment by the House of Representatives for perjury and obstruction of justice; the Senate ultimately acquitted him.

Zervos has alleged that Trump groped her when she sought career advice from him in 2007.

A NY judge set a series of deadlines for former "Apprentice" contestant Summer Zervos' defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump, as she declined to put the case on hold pending an appeal from Trump's legal team. But at least for now, it's moving into an information-gathering phase that could involve key disclosures - and put both Trump and Zervos under questioning by each other's lawyers.

Mr Kasowitz noted, however, that Mr Trump might potentially need extensions on deadlines because of the "significant attendant duties" of the presidency.

While Trump's lawyers emphasized that they are continuing to ask appeals courts to toss out or postpone the case, the judge set deadlines for a number of information-gathering steps - including depositions, or sworn questioning of both Trump and Zervos by January 29.

The deposition will occur as part of a defamation brought previous year by former "The Apprentice" contestant Summer Zervos, who accused Trump of groping her in 2016. They also argue that a sitting president can not be sued in a state court.

Presidential depositions have a memorable history: During a 1998 deposition in a sexual harassment case filed by Paula Jones, then-President Bill Clinton denied a sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Trump has denied the claims. Zervos was one of more than a dozen women to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct during his campaign. He also retweeted a post calling Zervos' claims a "hoax".

In addition, Zervos' lawyers have subpoenaed security video, records of Trump's stays and some other information from the Beverly Hills Hotel, where Zervos says Trump made some of his unwelcome advances toward her. Wang said Zervos will seek a "full range of damages" for defamation, including for emotional harm and business loss.

Trump's lawyers, meanwhile, are seeking a court order to keep some documents and information private.

Zervos is asking for "special damages" of nearly $3,000 plus damages for emotional harm and loss of business and for punitive damages.
