Donald Trump appeals $454 million judgment in New York civil fraud case


The former president’s lawyers filed notices of appeal Monday asking the state’s mid-level appeals court to overturn Judge Arthur Engoron’s Feb. 16 verdict in Attorney General Letitia James’ lawsuit and reverse staggering penalties that threaten to wipe out Trump’s cash reserves.

Trump’s lawyers wrote in court papers that they’re asking the appeals court to decide whether Engoron “committed errors of law and/or fact” and whether he abused his discretion or “acted in excess” of his jurisdiction.

The Republican presidential front-runner has until March 25 to secure what’s known as a stay, a legal mechanism pausing collection while he appeals. Trump would receive an automatic stay if he puts up money, assets or an appeal bond covering what he owes. Trump’s lawyers could also ask the appeals court to grant a stay without obtaining a bond or with a bond for a lower amount.

2 year Ukrainian war

Wondering about a solution.

Idea, give the heathens the eastern area. Horribly.

But then form a new country with the rest. Join NATO. Read if you are at war, you can't join NATO
But new country?

Just looking for out-of-the-box ideas to end this travesty.

Holy cow..as a life long Democrat, with Democrat in my DNA

agree with some things said. Not by the Devil Incarnate but by others.

Wonder what will become of us? Wonder if it will be the same old Hallelujah Chorus without analytical thinking.

Or, best case,we pull out a win! BUT "sexual assault " and his approval goes up. Government takeover? and his approval goes up ! SIX years and nothing has changed !

We have not figured out how to defeat the DEVIL. Yet we trash good Dems who say that?

Here's to hoping we can eke out a victory! EVERYTHING depends on it.

Where she accused ex-wife of interference ( probably trump inspired).

But not a denial. Is there one? From her or prosecutor she hired?
