NEW YORK (AP) The Latest on an appeals court ruling on a defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump (all times local):

1:55 p.m.

President Donald Trump's legal team plans to appeal a ruling that Trump isn't immune from a defamation lawsuit filed by a former "Apprentice" contestant.

Attorney Marc E. Kasowitz said in a statement on Thursday that the team "respectfully" disagrees with the majority decision in New York's Appellate Division and expects to prevail upon appeal in a higher court.

The suit was brought by Summer Zervos. She was among over a dozen women who emerged during the Republican's 2016 campaign with allegations of sexual misconduct years earlier. He called the women liars.

A New York appeals court has ruled that President Donald Trump isn't immune from a defamation lawsuit filed by a former "Apprentice" contestant who accused him of unwanted kissing and groping.

A state Supreme Court Appellate Division panel issued its ruling Thursday in a case brought by Summer Zervos.

The decision lets Zervos' suit proceed and increases the prospect that Trump could have to sit for sworn questioning.

Zervos was among over a dozen women who emerged during Trump's 2016 campaign with allegations of sexual misconduct years earlier. He called the women liars.

Trump's lawyers have said the case shouldn't go forward while he's in office. They also say his comments were opinions and protected free speech.

Zervos' lawyers say Trump's words were factual falsehoods that subjected her to threats.
