President Trump has been in a battle with his niece to stop the publication of a tell-all book from his niece. Trump along with other family members have stated that it would be in violation of an agreement the family had with the niece.
A judge issued a temporary restraining order on Tuesday.
According to The Daily Wire:
A New York judge has delayed the release of a book reportedly filled with embarrassing details about President Donald Trump and the wider Trump family.
New York State Supreme Court Judge Hal Greenwald issued a temporary restraining order against Mary Trump and Simon & Schuster on Tuesday, at least temporarily blocking the publication of Mary Trump’s new tell-all book, “Too Much And Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” according to The Daily Beast.
Greenwald ordered the publishing company to halt distributing the book until at least July 10 when the judge will hear oral arguments from both sides. Mary Trump’s uncle, Robert Trump, filed the restraining order request with the court last week to block publication of the book for violating a 2001 agreement related to the estate of Fred Trump, the father of Robert, Maryanne Trump Barry, and the president.
“Pending the hearing and determination of Petitioner Robert S. Trump’s within motion for a preliminary injunction, Mary L. Trump and Simon & Schuster, Inc., together with their respective members, officers, employees, servants, agents, attorneys, representatives and all other persons acting on behalf of or in concert with either or both of them, are hereby temporarily enjoined and restrained,” Greenwald wrote, according to The Daily Beast. “From publishing, printing or distributing any book or any portions thereof including but not limited to the book entitled: ‘Too Much and Never Enough, How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,’ in any medium containing descriptions or accounts of Mary L. Trump’s relationship with Robert S. Trump, Donald Trump, or Maryanne Trump Barry.”
Mary’s brother, Fred III stated that he only recently learned of her book and reaffirmed his strong relationship with his extended family essentially putting his sister against the rest of the family, alone.
