Judge orders Trump to pay $ 110,000 in fines for outrage

A judge overturned the outrage order against Trump on the condition that he complies with the conditions relating to the documents and pays $ 110,000 in fines for outrage by May 20.

CNN reports:

The judge said that all conditions, including the description of the Trump Organization’s document retention and destruction policy and the review of the remaining five of the 17 Trump-linked boxes located in an offsite storage facility, must be completed by on May 20.

Judge Arthur Engoron also agreed for Trump to place the fine in an escrow account until Trump’s appeal against the contempt ruling is completed.

But he told Trump’s lawyer: “I want the fine to be paid. That fine is now $ 110,000. “

If Trump fails to comply, the outrage order will be reinstated and he will be fined $ 10,000 per day.

Trump’s attorneys temporarily lifted the contempt order by providing more information on the Trump Organization’s handling and destruction of documents, which is a quite surprising development given the decades of reporting on the Trump Organization which has been using practices for decades. shady shredders as a way to make civil cases disappear.

Trump doesn’t let himself get rid of easily in New York, and it is suspected that Attorney General Letitia James it will make the contempt fine look like a change under the couch cushions when his investigation of the Trump Organization concludes.
