"Judge Temporarily Blocks Release Of Tell-All Book By Trump’s Niece"

Give me a break. :roll_eyes:

A tell-all book by President Donald Trump’s niece cannot be published until a judge decides the merits of claims by the president’s brother that its publication would violate a pact among family members, a judge said Tuesday.

New York state Supreme Court Judge Hal B. Greenwald* in Poughkeepsie, New York, issued an order requiring the niece, Mary Trump, and her publisher to explain why they should not be blocked from publishing the book: “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.” A hearing was set for July 10.

The judge said no portion of the book can be distributed before he decides the validity of Robert Trump’s claims. Robert Trump argues Mary Trump must comply with a written agreement among family members that such a book cannot be published without permission from other family members.

There goes my Christmas shopping.

*BTW, Greenwald is a Democrat.

There was a thread on this book right before the transition, but I can’t find it now. I started one that was a duplicate, but it’s locked.

Advantage Mary.

This is the original thread started June 15:

Well, rats. I guess I’ll just abandon this one.

If your family ever has to make a blood oath pact to be silent on something, it is probably not good.

Why are the niece and publisher being asked to explain why publication should be allowed? Shouldn’t the default be to allow publication and it’s up to the president’s brother to show reasons why it should be blocked?
