CHARLOTTE, N. C. – A civil lawsuit for alleged abuse filed against the North Carolina campaign director for now-President Donald Trump’s 2016 bid is rejected.
Campaign worker Vincent Bordini sued Earl Phillip in August 2016, says Phillip had pulled out a loaded pistol and placed the barrel on Bardini the kneecap. He said nothing was done after reporting the incident to then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and other Asset campaign officials.
The Charlotte Observer reported Monday the lawsuit was dismissed this month, without prejudice, which means that the court did not rule on the merits. On Friday, Phillip said that the incident never happened. He had resigned after the lawsuit’s filing.
Bordini said in a statement the parties had resolved a difference without compensation, and said that he hoped Phillip could “continue his promising career for the Republican cause.”
