New York Attorney General Seeks December Deadline for Response to Trump’s Mistrial Motion

Former President Trump’s legal team files for mistrial, citing judge’s alleged bias on social media

New York Attorney General Letitia James has requested a timely response from the judiciary regarding former President Trump’s motion for a mistrial in his civil fraud case. The motion, filed by Trump’s legal team, contends that Judge Arthur Engoron’s past social media posts indicate bias, necessitating a mistrial.

Background: Trump’s lawyers, Clifford Robert and Alina Habba, argue that Judge Engoron’s social media activity, particularly on an alumni page for Wheatley School, includes references to the case and individuals involved. They claim that the evidence of bias is substantial and warrants a mistrial due to a departure from standard judicial procedure.

Legal Proceedings: Former President Trump has been actively defending the Trump Organization in court against fraud charges brought by Attorney General Letitia James. The business faces potential consequences, including the jeopardy of its New York business license. Trump maintains his innocence, asserting that his assets were undervalued and emphasizing disclaimers on financial statements.

Motion for Mistrial: Trump’s legal team insists that the alleged bias and departure from standard procedures have tainted the proceedings, justifying their request for a mistrial. Attorney General Letitia James dismisses these claims as “spurious allegations” and urges a prompt response from Judge Engoron by December 8.

Trump’s Defense and Statements: Throughout the trial, Trump has reiterated his denial of any wrongdoing, consistently stating that his financial statements contained disclaimers, and urging banks to evaluate the numbers. Despite facing legal challenges, he remains steadfast in his defense against the fraud charges.

Judicial Response Deadline: Attorney General Letitia James, in a letter to Judge Engoron, requests a timely reply to Trump’s legal team’s motion by December 8. The urgency reflects the gravity of the allegations and the need for a swift resolution.

Conclusion: As the civil fraud trial unfolds, the motion for a mistrial adds a new layer of complexity. The December deadline for a judicial response will play a crucial role in determining the course of the proceedings. The case remains a focal point in the legal battles between former President Trump and the New York Attorney General.
