'DENIED': Trump family effort to block tell-all book by the president's niece squashed by judge

Source: Raw Story

On Monday, a judge in New York lifted the lawsuit from the Trump family that blocked Mary Trump from releasing her tell-all book, which is scheduled to hit bookshelves this week.

WIth the lifting of the gag order prohibiting Mary Trump from speaking about the book, her attorney Ted Boutros said that the First Amendment “forbids prior restraints because they are intolerable infringements on the right to participate in democracy.”

6. I figured that the courts would rule in Mary's first amendment right positively and they did!

Good for her and her book. How many books are out there now on trump and his idiot sideshow? 10? 20? More?

Every book, every person that's rode the rump train and got off have all stained and damaged their reputations severely. How many more disgusting stories are out there on the PINO?

7. Mary Trump Free to Dish on Her Family and Tell-All Book, Judge Rules




A judge has freed Mary Trump from a gag order, allowing the president’s niece to speak freely about her family and promote her hotly anticipated tell-all.

The book—Too Much Is Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, which people close to the project say has already sold close to 1 million copies and is on its third print run—is due out on Tuesday.

In a statement to The Daily Beast, Mary Trump’s attorney, Theodore Boutrous Jr. said, “The court got it right in rejecting the Trump family’s effort to squelch Mary Trump’s core political speech on important issues of public concern. The First Amendment forbids prior restraints because they are intolerable infringements on the right to participate in democracy. Tomorrow, the American public will be able to read Mary’s important words for themselves.”

The development comes as the man spearheading the complicated and time consuming legal effort to stop the book’s publication and enforce Mary’s gag order, her uncle Robert, was readmitted to the same intensive care unit at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York on Thursday where he had spent 10 days in June in a serious condition, according to multiple people familiar with the situation.

12. Of course.

This is exactly what the first amendment prohibits.

This book is actual free speech.

The government cannot do shit to suppress this.

20. This ruling prohibits prior restraint, it does not...

... stop the Trumps from attempting to penalize her through enforcement of whatever may be the terms of the alleged non disclosure agreement.

If that were tossed it would be a real first amendment victory.

24. I believe she's saying that there was fraud involved,

and therefore the non disclosure agreement is invalid.

25. That's true, and she makes a few other good points...

... one being that the other trumps have never asked her permission before disclosing information about the family. So there's that.

I would like to see a ruling that just flat out invalidates any non disclosure pertaining to a topic of serious and significant public interest.

Lucky for me I've never been in a situation where I've been asked to sign one.

31. As an update, the Judge did seem to hold....

... that the non disclosure agreement held no force in this situation. I don't know if that was a ruling in and of itself, or if it was mentioned as part of the rational for dismissing the restraining order.

32. I sign non disclosure agreements all the time...

... to gain access to technical documentation as part of my engineering activities. If you accept employment as an engineer, almost certainly your employer has had you sign a more general non disclosure agreement. My bet is that a lot more people have signed them than are aware.

Of course these are limited and substantially different in nature from the sort of agreement we see here.

Maybe she toned it down hoping it could squeek by, but now, knowing she's free to speak, maybe she even shares more of those boxes of financial records she has
