Tuesday, Judge Arthur F. Engoron of the NY Supreme Court reversed his previous decision and ruled Tuesday the Trump Org must turn over documents related to the company’s Seven Springs estate in Westchester County being investigated by NY AG Letitia James’ office.
James is probing whether President Trump’s son, Eric Trump and others inflated property values.
“By Dec. 18, 2020 the Trump Org. must produce all communications with [engineer] Ralph Mastromonaco to the New York Attorney General’s office,” Engoron ruled.
Attorney for the Trump Org Amy Carline argued their organization’s discussions involving an engineer about a Westchester County property had “every expectation that those communications would be confidential.”
Attorney Eric Haren with the attorney general’s office argued the Trump organization had “waived privilege” when it disclosed certain documents to the iRS to “gain benefit.”
Appearing on “The View” last week, James said proudly “Trump cannot avoid justice in the great state of New York”.
