- In 26 days, Trump, his sons, and his real-estate empire are scheduled in a civil fraud trial in New York.
- NY Attorney General Letitia James seeks to permanently banish Trump Org from the state.
- On Wednesday, a judge rejected Trump’s bid to delay the trial as “completely without merit.”
A Manhattan judge has given an unequivocal response to Donald Trump’s latest bid to delay his upcoming civil business-fraud trial, calling the effort “completely without merit” in a terse, handwritten order on Wednesday.
The decision follows legal filings in which New York’s attorney general seeks to fine Trump and his co-defendants $10,000 each for trying to delay the trial through “frivolous conduct.”
Trump’s response to Attorney General Letitia James? Filed late Tuesday, it boiled down to this: No, you’re being frivolous by staging a “side show” for “media attention.”
