Trump goes to trial in New York before a judge who just ruled he’s a fraud

October 01, 2023

Engoron found Trump liable for widespread fraud and revoked the licenses for some of his flagship properties, including Trump Tower and the Trump International Hotel. The ruling paves the way for much of the trial to focus on the punishments Trump will now face. The judge subsequently released Trump from the contempt order and required him to pay a total of $110,000 in penalties. The trial beginning Monday will address what Trump, his businesses, his adult sons and his business associates did with that false information. He didn’t appear in court for any of a federal civil trial held earlier this year in a separate lawsuit brought by Carroll.
