Trump tries to dodge accuser’s defamation suit for third time:

President Trump is appealing once again to dodge a defamation suit filed by former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos.

After the state’s mid-level Appellate Division last week denied the stay — agreeing with a lower court’s ruling in March — Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz on Tuesday petitioned the ​state’s highest court, the Court of Appeals, to delay the suit.

Kasowitz is arguing that the US Constitution provides sitting presidents with immunity from civil litigation while in office.

Zervos is suing the commander-in-chief for defamation after she in 2016 accused then-candidate Trump of groping her and pressing his junk against her — and he responded by saying her claims were “fiction” that she made up for “personal gain.”

The president on Tuesday also appealed a decision that allowed Manhattan condo Trump Place to remove the “Trump” sign from its façade.
