Appeals Court Preserves Trump's New York Business Certificates for Now - WSJ

Letitia James, an Attorney General from the New York’s Office, filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump, a well-known business giant, and former U.S. President that he along with his sons (who are adults), company executives, and the Trump Organization heavily exaggerated Trump’s networth in the financial statements to avail more advantageous tax benefits and loan terms.

The plaintiffs seek a permanent ban on running a business in New York against the former POTUS along with his sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, a commercial real-estate ban lasting 5 years against Trump and the Trump Organization, and at least $250 million in fine.

The Manhattan Supreme Court Judge, Arthur Engoron issued a statement last month in favor of Attorney General James, stating that she had proven the claim mentioned and the defendants indeed engaged in business fraud. The business certificates of the defendants have been canceled. The judge issued orders on Thursday concerning the dissolution of the business entities concerned. Previously an independent manager was to be appointed overseeing the matter. The concerned businesses include 40 Wall Street, Trump Tower, and the companies controlling his key real estate.

Christopher Kise, Trump’s lawyer plans to appeal for a stay on the judge’s order, specifically on the orders on the dissolution of Trump’s Corporate assets as of Thursday. The Attorney General’s office is entitled to an advance notice of at least 24 hours before such an appeal. However, Kise did not wish to reveal the relevant details and scope of the appeal planned to be sought on Friday morning. This upset a lawyer from the Attorney General’s Office.

The said trial is expected to last till December, where so far Trump attended only for two and a half days and then was not required to attend the proceedings so far as he complained of being ‘stuck’ in court and unable to run his primary campaign for Republican Presidential.
