A federal judge in New York has upheld an arbitrator's ruling that Monnin must pay the Miss USA pageant $5 million for defaming Donald Trump's pageant organization. She resigned as Miss Pennsylvania last year, saying the contest was rigged and claimed another contestant learned the names of the top five Miss USA finishers hours before the show was broadcast.
