Donald Trump Released From Contempt Order In New York Civil Probe

(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)

Donald Trump was formally released on Wednesday from an order finding him in contempt of court for having failed to comply with a subpoena from New York's attorney general, who is investigating the former U.S. president's business practices, Trend reports citing Reuters

Justice Arthur Engoron of a New York state court in Manhattan purged the subpoena after Attorney General Letitia James agreed that Trump's recent submissions from his personal records were sufficient

The judge had found Trump in contempt on April 25 and ordered him to pay $10,000 a day until he complied with James' subpoena, which was issued in December.

Trump accumulated $110,000 in fines before Engoron stopped them from accruing, to allow more time to comply with the subpoena. He has paid the fines, which will remain in escrow while he appeals the original contempt filing.

A lawyer for Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A spokeswoman for James declined to comment.
