  • Trump Loses Again in Court

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/fe...cid=spartandhp

    A federal judge in El Paso on Tuesday blocked the Trump administration’s plan to pay for border barrier construction with $3.6 billion in military funds, ruling that the administration does not have the authority to divert money appropriated by Congress for a different purpose.

    The Trump administration was planning to use those funds to build 175 miles of steel barriers, and the court’s permanent injunction is a setback for Trump’s pledge to erect 450 linear miles of fencing by the end of next year.

    District Court Judge David Briones, a Bill Clinton appointee, said in his ruling that the administration’s attempt to reprogram military construction funds by emergency proclamation was unlawful and that the plaintiffs in the case were entitled to a permanent injunction halting the government.

    A New York state judge on Thursday denied President Donald Trump's effort to dismiss a defamation lawsuit against him by arguing his residency in Washington should preclude him from being sued in New York.


    The judge's ruling will allow the lawsuit by longtime magazine columnist E. Jean Carroll to move forward. In November, Carroll sued Trump for defamation over what she has said were his lies denying her public accusation months earlier that he sexually assaulted her in a dressing room at luxury Manhattan department store Bergdorf Goodman in the 1990s.

    After Carroll went public with her account, Trump denied the incident had occurred, calling it "totally false," and said of Carroll that he "never met this person." Those claims, the lawsuit said, were "false" and "defamatory."

    On Thursday, New York state Supreme Court Justice Doris Ling-Cohan not only denied Trump's motion to dismiss the case, but faulted him for failing to include a written statement to support his effort.
    "Although defendant Trump, through his counsel, claims lack of personal jurisdiction, notably, there is not even a tweet, much less an affidavit by Trump in support of his motion," the judge wrote.
    An attorney for Trump, Lawrence S. Rosen, didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.An attorney for Carroll, Robbie Kaplan, said in a statement that "we are pleased, and unsurprised, that the Court refused to tolerate Donald Trump's latest attempt to avoid discovery in our client's case."
    She added, "We look forward to moving ahead in this case and proving that Donald Trump lied when he told the world that he did not rape our client and had not even met her."

      Another day, another Clinton or Obama appointee rules against Trump... It's getting old.

        most of these cases are steered to judges the plaintiffs know will be friendly to their claims.
        The results aren't surprising.


        On the other hand, Trump recently won big in the 9th circuit of all places. The ruling means that Trump can make it more difficult for sanctuary cities to get federal money.

          Looks like this one goes into the Trump wins in court column.


          The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued an order Wednesday allowing the Trump administration to use military construction funds for the southern border wall, handing the president another major immigration victory.

            They usually do once you get the Judges with TDS out of the picture.

              Perhaps we could have a mod come around and stamp these rulings as overrulled/dismissed.

              Nah, the mods put up with enough bs already...

              How about the op has enough class and or pride to own that he was wrong?

                Well...you have to see it the way it was at first. It LOOKED like Trump had lost. In that instant the o.p. (who shall remain namelessena) seized upon what he knew to be the truth...even if it was fleeting...obviously to make a point to those who really weren't paying attention.
