Attorney General Tish James is running circles around the ex-President, the Real Estate guy’s effort’s to dodge the civil suit alleging he and his family ‘cooked the books’ on their assets to avoid scrutiny by banks, investors and maybe even the state and federal tax laws….
The AG case is one of several winding thru the courts in Manhattan New York State, Washington DC and Florida….
2023 IS gonna be a rough year for Trump and his lawyers…..
And the judges in these case’s ain’t taking any shit from Trump & Co……
And his lawyers have been getting beat downs from judges for doing Trump’s ‘frivolous’ bidding….
‘For who the Bell tolls’, eh?
A New York judge declined on Friday to throw out the state attorney general’s civil fraud case against former President Donald J. Trump, increasing the likelihood that he will face a trial this fall.
In a sharply worded order, the judge, Justice Arthur F. Engoron of State Supreme Court in Manhattan, denied Mr. Trump’s motion to dismiss the case, granting the attorney general, Letitia James, another victory in the matter. In September, Ms. James filed a lawsuit accusing Mr. Trump, three of his adult children and their family business of overvaluing his assets by billions of dollars.
In his written order, Justice Engoron said that some of the arguments repeatedly made by Mr. Trump’s lawyers were “frivolous,” and had been “borderline frivolous even the first time defendants made them.”
The judge also rejected a separate attempt by Mr. Trump’s daughter Ivanka, who is named as a defendant in Ms. James’s lawsuit, to dismiss the accusations against her….
Justice Engoron took issue with Mr. Trump’s latest assertion of the claim. In a letter this week, he suggested he might punish the former president’s lawyers for “frivolous litigation,” saying they continued to lean on legal arguments he had previously rejected.
