New York: An advice columnist who says President Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in a New York City department store dressing room in the 1990s is now suing him for alleged defamation.

E Jean Carroll filed a lawsuit Monday in New York.

The suit says Trump harmed her reputation and career when he said she was lying and he'd never even met her.

A message requesting comment was sent to a law firm that has represented Trump in other cases.

Carroll first made the allegation in a New York magazine article in June.

At the time, Trump said she was "totally lying" and called her "not my type."

He also said he'd never met her, though a 1987 photo shows him and Carroll in a photo with their spouses at the time.
