Former (cựu) President Donald J. Trump was ordered by a Manhattan jury on Friday to pay $83.3 million to the writer E. Jean Carroll for defaming (phỉ báng) her in 2019 after she accused him of a decades-old rape, attacks he continued in social media posts, at news conferences and even in the midst (giữa) of the trial (phiên tòa) itself.

Ms. Carroll’s lawyers had argued (lập luận) that a large award was necessary to stop Mr. Trump from continuing to attack her. After less than three hours of deliberation, the jury responded by awarding Ms. Carroll $65 million in punitive (trừng phạt) damages, finding that Mr. Trump had acted with malice (ác ý). On one recent day, he made more than 40 derisive (chế nhạo) posts about Ms. Carroll on his Truth Social website.

On Friday, Mr. Trump had already left the courtroom (phòng xử án) for the day when the judge, Lewis A. Kaplan, called in the nine-member jury shortly after 4:30 p.m., warning the lawyers, “We will have no outbursts (hành vi bộc phát).” The verdict was delivered nine minutes later to utter (hoàn toàn) silence in the courtroom.

In addition to the $65 million, jurors awarded Ms. Carroll $18.3 million in compensatory (bồi thường) damages for her suffering (đau khổ). Mr. Trump’s lawyers slumped in their seats as the dollar figures were read aloud. The jury was dismissed, and Ms. Carroll, 80, embraced her lawyers. Minutes later, she walked out of the courthouse arm in arm with her legal team, beaming (rạng rỡ) for the cameras.
