An appeals judge from New York has hinted at the possibility of a delay in the civil trial involving Donald Trump, which is scheduled for October 2nd. The judge suggested on Thursday that a panel of appeals court should hear the complaints made by Trump regarding the presiding judge. This development could potentially derail the trial.
According to the recent ruling by Appellate Justice David Friedman, the commencement of the trial would be delayed in case the pre-trial appeal process is not finished on time.
In a final attempt to prevent the trial that could potentially devastate the former president’s business empire, lawyers representing Trump and his family members lodged a legal complaint on Thursday. The move was aimed at putting a stop to the fraud trial, which could have serious consequences for Trump. The complaint was filed just in time, as the trial dates were already set in the calendar.
The legal team of former President Donald Trump has requested the appeals court to intervene in a case against Justice Arthur F. Engoron. They have alleged that the justice did not adhere to the rulings that limited the claims in the lawsuit filed by New York State Attorney General Letitia James last year. The case pertains to Trump Organization’s finances and assets, and Justice Engoron’s alleged failure to follow the rulings has led to this appeal.
According to The Daily Beast, the recent filing by Trump against Judge Arthur F. Engoron is a bold and unexpected move, especially as the trial draws near.
Last year, Letitia James brought a lawsuit against Donald Trump and his family members, alleging that they had engaged in financial fraud to benefit themselves. The potential outcome of the case could be the closure of The Trump Organization. As reported in USA Today, the lawsuit is ongoing.
According to James, Trump has been making baseless legal maneuvers during pre-trial proceedings. She has taken action by requesting the state Supreme Court to impose sanctions on the former president and other individuals associated with the family business.
According to reports, even as he prepares to run for president again in 2024, Donald Trump is facing up to seven criminal and civil trials. Despite this, he has accused James and other individuals of playing politics.
The civil trial involving Donald Trump is currently in limbo as a New York appeals judge has given indications that there may be a delay. This news was reported on USA TODAY, and the article was originally published on their platform.
