Trump sues judge in James lawsuit

Sep 15, 2023 1:01 pm

New York State of Politics reports that former President Donald Trump's lawyers filed an Article 78 lawsuit accusing trial judge Arthur Engoron of repeatedly abusing his authority. Engoron is the judge in the New York attorney general's business fraud lawsuit against Trump, which is currently scheduled to begin Oct. 2. But this lawsuit may delay that depending how Justice David Friedman rules in a decision he will announce during the week of Sept. 25. Trump's lawyers allegations against Engoron include the judge's refusal to grant a request for a three-week trial delay, which he ruled as "completely without merit," and because he has yet to comply with a June appeals court's order to determine which claims in the fraud lawsuit are barred by the statute of limitations. Oral arguments in the James case are scheduled for Sept. 22 about requests from James' office and Trump's lawyers. James did not comment on the new Trump lawsuit, just saying, "We are confident in our case and will be ready for trial." In many of his lawsuits, Trump has also tried to remove judges and delay trials. Read more about this story at New York State of Politics.
