Note that this current trial is a civil case. The criminal case comes later, when more of the parties have left 'government service'.

What are the betting odds on Eric pleading the 5th to protect himself or another family member?

Before he does so I'd like to remind everyone of his father's position on the 5th.

He will not show up. A bounty hunter with a warrant should be sent after him, just to see Eric dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge...

Generally speaking, you can't plead the 5th in a civil trial since you're not at risk of losing life or liberty. However, in Eric's case, he might be allowed to do do since anything he says in the civil case could be used against him in a future criminal case, so in that situation he would be allowed to. However, if you're the defendant (since Eric is a corporate officer of the Trump Organization, that would make him at least one of the defendants) and you plead the 5th in a civil case, this generally leads to a judgement against you since it can be argued that you failed to defend your position, so the court would then almost have to side with the plaintiff.
