Mary Trump book: Judge temporarily blocks the publication of the book told by President Trump’s nephew

"Too Much and Never Enough" by Mary L. Trump, from Simon & Schuster

The decision by Judge Hal B. Greenwald from the New York State Supreme Court, the state court court, is the first legal gain for the President’s younger brother, Robert S. Trump. Robert Trump tried to block his book, claiming that the President’s nephew, Mary Trump, had violated a confidentiality agreement regarding the property of the President’s father, Fred Trump.

“Robert Trump is very pleased with the New York Supreme Court’s measure against Mary Trump and Simon & Schuster,” said Robert Trump’s lawyer, Charles Harder. Said.

Describing the actions of Mary Trump and Simon & Schuster as “understandable”, Harder added that he is looking forward to “investigating this case violently”.

“The short corrective actions that will immediately stop their honest behavior, we will continue this case until the end,” Harder said. Said.

In addition to his work for Robert Trump, Harder sued news organizations on behalf of President Trump. Lawsuits with low chance of success in public relations court were rejected by legal experts.

Ted Boutrous, a famous First Amendment lawyer representing Mary Trump and representing CNN in matters in the past, said the order “clearly violated the First Amendment.”

“We’ll appeal immediately,” Boutrous said. “This book, which touches upon the public’s great concern and importance about a president sitting in the election year, should not be published even one day.”

Simon & Schuster general manager Jonathan Karp said in an affidavit on Tuesday evening that the publication of the book would “cause extraordinary economic damage” to the company.

Karp announced that Simon & Schuster printed about 75,000 copies of the book. Karp also said, “No more controlling copies,” sent to bookstores and online retailers.

Karp said, “Since I have been working in book publishing for more than 30 years, I am not aware of a book that has never been enjoyed and censored by the public.” Said.

Karp added that Simon & Schuster was unaware of any confidentiality agreement that Mary Trump had accepted “two weeks before the book was accepted, started to be produced, and the publication began.”

Simon & Schuster describes Mary Trump’s book “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Made the Most Dangerous Man in the World” as “enlightening, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made it.”

The book was the fourth best-selling book on Amazon on Tuesday afternoon.

The publisher says the book will “shine a bright light on their families’ dark history to explain that his uncle is now the man who threatens world health, economic security, and social fabric.”

Tuesday’s decision came after the Queens District Attorney’s Court judge in New York last week was refused the attempt to block the book on grounds that it had no jurisdiction.

After the case was dismissed, Robert Trump accepted his case before the New York State Supreme Court.

Robert Trump argued that as a part of Fred Trump’s will, a solution involving the confidentiality provision was reached. This sentence, claimed by Robert Trump, was accepted by all parties, including Mary Trump.

The Trump administration has recently taken legal action to block the book of former national security adviser John Bolton to tell.

However, the federal judge denied the move of the Ministry of Justice by writing that Bolton’s book has already been disbanded and that the court will not “order the destruction and destruction of a political souvenir across the country”.
