4. I just posted a LBN on this but this case was brought by the MD & D.C. Attorney Generals

And most likely because they were referencing what was going on in his hotels in their jurisdictions.



ETA - from the WaPo article -

/snip

The lawsuit is one of three major cases testing for the first time the Constitutionís ban on the countryís leaders engaging in private business relationships with foreign governments.

In the New York case, brought by Trumpís business competitors, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit in September said a lower-court judge had improperly thrown out the case in late 2017.

A separate case in Washington, filed by congressional Democrats, is on hold while Trump appeals.
