Trump family LOSES legal bid to stop Mary Trump’s ‘tell-all’ book’s publishing – The Sun

THE Trump family has lost a legal bid to stop Mary Trump's "tell-all" book from being published.

A Queens judge tossed out a lawsuit from President Trump's brother that attempted to block the estranged niece's book from being published, the New York Daily News reported.



The Trump family had tried to argue that the book, titled, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, would violate a non-disclosure agreement.

Justice Peter Kelly, however, said the attempt fell "outside the parameters" of the court, the Daily News reported.

"This controversy is a dispute regarding private rights and obligations which fall outside the parameters of … the Surrogate’s Court,” Justice Peter Kelly wrote.

Attorney Charles Harder, representing Robert Trump, argued the book violates an NDA, and vowed to re-file the suit, the Daily News reported.

"Robert Trump, Mary Trump and the other family members who settled in 2001, agreed to jurisdiction of future disputes in the Surrogate’s Court of Queens County, New York," Harder said.


He added: "Therefore, Robert Trump will proceed with filing a new lawsuit in the Supreme Court of New York.

Mary Trump's lawyer, Theodore Boutrous, called the lawsuit a "baseless request to suppress a book of utmost public importance, Bloomberg reported.

"Democracy thrives on the free exchange of ideas, and neither this court nor any other has the authority to violate the Constitution by imposing a prior restraint on core political speech, Boutrous said.

President Trump previously had said his niece could not publish the book as it would violate the NDA, and even reportedly "considered suing" her.

"She’s not allowed to write a book," the president said Sunday in an interview with Axios.


"You know, when we settled with her and her brother, who I do have a good relationship with – she’s got a brother Fred, who I do have a good relationship with, but when we settled, she has a total… signed a nondisclosure,” he added.

“She explains how specific events and general family patterns created the damaged man who currently occupies the Oval Office, including the strange and harmful relationship between Fred Trump and his oldest sons, Fred Jr. and Donald,” an Amazon blurb on the book says.

Simon & Schuster announced earlier this month that the book is scheduled to hit bookshelves on July 28.

Alongside Mary Trump's book release, former national security adviser Michael Bolton is also set to release a book of his own.

Bolton's book reportedly will give readers a glimpse into Trump's impeachment and relationship with foreign countries.

Trump said Bolton "will have a "very strong criminal problem"  if he publishes his memoir.
