James wants Trump and others sanctioned

Sep 06, 2023 12:57 am

Tom Winter, Adam Reiss, Jonathan Dienst, and Rebecca Shabad report for NBC News that Attorney General Letitia James wants New York's state Supreme Court to sanction former President Donald Trump, his sons Eric and Don Jr., and others related to the family business and Trump's attorneys for $20,000. James wants to sanction the Trump officials because they keep bringing up “previously-rejected arguments.” James on Sept. 5 named five instances where Trump attorney's recycled previously rejected arguments by the court or where Trump attorneys made arguments based on a lack of legal or factual basis. James made the request as part of her lawsuit that alleges that the Trump organization routinely presented false financial information to lenders, insurance companies, and others to benefit the former president and his businesses. The civil suit trial begins on Oct. 2. In her filing Sept. 5 James said the arguments Trump lawyers made "were borderline frivolous even the first time defendants made them," and observed that reading the defendants' brief "was, to quote the baseball saga Lawrence Peter ('Yogi') Berra, 'Deja vu all over again.'"
