A New York judge on Tuesday found former President Trump liable for fraud, handing a major legal victory to New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) in her sprawling civil case over Trump’s businesses.
New York Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron granted James’s request to find Trump liable for the first of seven causes of action she has accused him of in the lawsuit.
Engoron simultaneously denied Trump’s demand to toss the entire suit without trying the case. The non-jury trial on the remaining matters is set to begin Monday, barring Trump’s separate, last-minute effort for a delay.
Engoron also granted James’s request to sanction five of Trump’s lawyers for bringing up already-dismissed arguments in court, ordering them to pay a $7,500 fine each.

These very low-IQ affirmative action hire judges are clueless. Third party appraisers for both the banks and insurance companies determine value, not Trump.
“claiming more than a decade of fraud. “
Isn’t there a statue of limitations for tax fraud or does it only apply to Hunter.

"Trump and company liable for fraud in New York lawsuit, judge rules"
Are there any republican judges, District Attorneys, or lawyers bringing charges against Trump????
It all in it’s entirety seems to be 100% politically motivated....
The judge knows all that. The only goal is to bury Trump in lawfare.
Maybe he rest of the country needs to vote New York City out of the union
Embellished appraisals are now a capital crime. Ridiculous.
