Affidavits filed last week by
The judge in April held Trump in contempt of court for failing to turn over any records related to potentially fraudulent asset valuations at his sprawling company. The judge said Trump and others at his company needed to sign affidavits explaining the search process.
Trump’s lawyer, Alina Habba, said she would pursue an appeal.
“Although we are pleased that the court has lifted the contempt finding, we maintain that it was wholly unwarranted and improper in the first place,” Habba said in a statement. “We will push ahead with our appeal to secure justice for our client.”
The case is New York v. Trump Organization, 2022-00814, Supreme Court of the State of New York (Manhattan).
