A lawsuit accusing Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, of raping a 13-year-old girl has been refiled in Manhattan federal court by attorney Thomas Meagher. The lawsuit was originally filed by Katie Johnson without an attorney in California federal court.

The accuser is now going by the pseudonym Jane Doe, and is seeking $75,000 in damages, plus attorney fees.

The lawsuit is also being brought against Jeffrey Epstein, a financier who was arrested in 2006 and accused of sexual abuse by over 40 different women.

The claim accuses Trump and Epstein of rape, sexual misconduct, criminal sexual acts, sexual abuse, forcible touching, assault, battery, intentional and reckless infliction of emotional distress, duress and false and imprisonment.

An initial pre-trial conference that was scheduled for September 9 has been pushed back until October 14.

Trump told Radar Online that "the allegations are not only categorically false, but disgusting at the highest level and clearly framed to solicit media attention or, perhaps, are simply politically motivated. There is absolutely no merit to these allegations. Period.”
