Trump’s lawyers have made a number of arguments to try to get Zervos’s suit dismissed, but the most important has to do with the fact that Zervos is suing in New York state court. The Supreme Court decision in Clinton v. Jones, which stemmed from Paula Jones’s sexual harassment lawsuit against President Clinton, established that the president can be sued in federal court for acts committed outside his official capacity as president. But Trump’s lawyers are arguing that the president cannot be sued for such acts in state court.

New York Supreme Court Judge Jennifer G. Schecter rejected that argument in 2018, arguing that the logic of Clinton v. Jones was just as applicable in state court as in federal court. “No one is above the law,” she wrote in her ruling.

Trump’s team appealed that decision, bringing it before a panel of five judges. On Thursday, the panel ruled that Zervos’s case could go forward, according to the Washington Post. “This Court should not be deterred from holding that a state court can exercise jurisdiction over the President as a defendant in a civil lawsuit,” wrote the judges in their majority opinion. Two judges on the panel dissented, arguing that “the President should not be forced to defend this lawsuit while he is in office.”
