Judge Tosses Trump Family Attempt To Block Mary Trump's Tell-All

Source: The Daily Beast

A New York judge has tossed an application by President Donald Trump’s brother to try and halt the publication of his niece’s book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.

Queens County Surrogate Court Judge Peter Kelly cited “several improprieties” in Robert Trump’s filing that rendered it “fatally defective”—including that it was based on the official disposition of patriarch Fred Trump Sr.’s estate, which wrapped up in 2001 and is thus for legal purposes “nonexistent.” That settlement included a confidentiality clause that niece Mary Trump signed, and which the elder Trumps have argued prevents her from publishing the sort of titillating family secrets her memoir is set to contain.

But Kelly asserted that his court could not provide the declaratory judgment blocking the book that Robert sought, and recommended the Trump brother try his luck in the New York State Supreme Court, which oversees civil and criminal matters. The Surrogate Court strictly handles the wills and assets of the deceased.

"Under the scenario presented, it cannot be successfully argued this dispute affects the administration of the decedent's estate," Kelly wrote. “The irrefutable conclusion is, regardless of the outcome of this matter, the administration of this estate will not be impacted one iota.

“Accordingly, the matter is dismissed.”

1. I think I'd rather read Mary Trump's book than Bolton's!

Sounds much more interesting than what I've heard from Bolton.

12. Trust me, you'd rather get a root canal than read Bolton's book ... I tried

I got about three hours into the twenty hour audio book and gave up, it was torturous.

27. I downloaded it from an audiobook torrent site

He still has no idea that he was only hired as a distraction to change the news cycle. He thinks he's the smartest guy in the room, but in reality he's the only one who is too clueless to realize what an utter buffoon Trump is, then after 17 months he acts as if he's the first one to figure it out. It was painful to listen to.

2. They will push this all the way up the food chain

But that takes time. Guessing Mary and her publisher will just go ahead and release the book. Send out a few advance copies to the media. Then it's too late.

Go Mary!

Of course, at $xxx per hour, it is best to let the client give it a try.

38. Frankly, I was wonderin on what grounds he (or his attorney) thought ht had standing to sue

since it's Donald who apparently is going to get pillories.

I guess the short answer is - in this court - he didn't.

42. in the Soprano's what???????

I think you mean 'the Sopranos' as in the people named Soprano. Apostrophe s is possessive. Just adding an s is the group of people named Soprano.

28. The problem is all the competent ones know him.

Once you stiff a few out of their fees the word is out among the legal community. Also I don't think any competent attorney wants to be known as "Trumps attorney". He is hated by a great many and taking a case for him could cost you your hard earned clients and referrals.

19. Isn't there a statue of limitations on things like over 7 years

So if a NDA was signed which I doubt is one silenced the rest of their lives with an NDA?

I wish many of those who signed NDAs for MF45 in concert would disclosure and publish them and say we no longer will be liable. Hire all those lawyers and go after us. I bet there are so many it would be overwhelming to the court system. And it would be excellent right at the high of the election like October. A reverse October surprise against MF45!

26. NDA

She signed an NDA directly related to the financial settlement from Donnie the loser. If not directly stated , she can talk about anything else she wants to. Dumb deal Donnie never wants anyone to know how much money he pays to settle .

30. The book will go on sale on July 28. That's what Amazon says for pre-orders.

Doesn't seem likely they could get a decision from another court before then. But then again, in a rich and powerful man's world, who knows?
