(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Thursday, a New York appeals court ruled that the stay of Judge’s Arthur Engoron’s order in the civil fraud case against former President Donald Trump, that pauses the cancellation of Trump’s business certificates, is going to remain in place.
MSNBC legal analyst Lisa Rubin reported on X, formerly known as Twitter, that according to an appeals court in New York, Trump’s businesses would continue to be in operation, while the probe by the state’s Attorney General Letitia James proceeded.
James was the one to bring forward the lawsuit against Trump in New York, which has been ongoing in the past few weeks. James has alleged that Trump, his two adult sons and the Trump administration had inflated their assets in order to gain access to better business deals, while deflating their value to benefit from lower taxation.
Last year in her announcement of the lawsuit James stated that for a decade starting in 2011, Trump and the Trump organization had made over 200 false and misleading asset valuations in an attempt to defraud financial institutions.
Trump has maintained that he has committed no wrongdoings and he has repeatedly blasted both James and Engoron over this case. On Thursday in a post on his social media platform, Truth Social Trump argued that the case was part of a witch hunt, and that it had been decided before the start of the trial. He added that they had won at the appellate division, but that Judge Engoron was not honoring the order.
