A New York jury reached a quick verdict awarding E. Jean Carroll $83.3 million in damages in her suit that Donald Trump defamed her.

Trump stormed out of the closing arguments, leaving the courtroom while an attorney representing E. Jean Carroll spoke. He returned to hear his own attorney speak.

A jury found Trump liable last year for sexually abusing Carroll in a New York department store in the 1990s and defaming her after she wrote about the incident.

The current trial focuses only on what damages Trump will have to pay for defaming Carroll. She is seeking at least $10 million in compensatory damages and an unspecified amount in punitive damages. The jury could reach a verdict as early as today.

Prosecutors and Trump’s lawyers concluded testimony yesterday after the former president briefly took the stand and called Carroll’s accusation “false.” the trial is being presided over by U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan.
