'Get Trump' attorney general gets $15 million win, then she...

 May 26, 2024

New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) just scored a $15.2 million verdict, and, now, she is going after a construction company. 

This is according to a press release that James's office released on Friday, May 24, 2024 - the day after she obtained the $15.2 million judgment.

And, both of these cases come after James managed to get a more than $350 million judgment against former President Donald Trump, for allegedly defrauding banks by overvaluing his assets on bank loan documents.

The legitimacy of the Trump verdict, however, has seriously been called into question by legal experts, and it is on appeal. Trump has alleged that James and others are using the legal system as a political weapon against him, and legal experts on both sides of the political spectrum largely agree.

The latest case

James announced her case against the construction company - ALAC on Friday.

Her office, in a press release, wrote:

New York Attorney General Letitia James and New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Interim Commissioner Sean Mahar today filed a lawsuit against Anthony Labriola and his two affiliate companies—ALAC Realty, LLC (ALAC Realty) and ALAC Contracting Corp. (ALAC Contracting)—for illegally building a storage lot to park heavy-duty construction vehicles and store equipment on a protected area along the Carlls River in West Babylon, Suffolk County.

James's office continues by alleging that "Labriola and his companies removed trees and other vegetation from, then graded, a designated 'buffer area' adjacent to wetlands of the Carlls River, the fourth longest river on Long Island."

Then, James claims that "Labriola and his companies have refused to remove equipment, restore the site, and pay outstanding penalties."

Accordingly, James is looking to have a court "require Labriola to clean up the site" and "replant it with native vegetation." Additionally, James wants the court to impose a $591,000 fine on Labriola for "combined civil penalties."

The $15 million verdict

In case you missed it, James, on Thursday, obtained a $15.2 million judgment against a group of cannabis dispensaries.

Newsweek reports:

David Tulley, owner of the unlicensed dispensary chain "I'm Stuck" and "Weed Warehouse," operated stores without a license in Cayuga, Oswego and Wayne counties and illegally sold cannabis to underage customers, according to a judgment issued on Thursday by [Judge Healy].

James celebrated the ruling, saying, "This punishment should serve as a clear warning for all unlicensed cannabis stores in the state: we will enforce the law and shut down your operations."

Tulley continues to dispute the charges, which he has referred to as "comical" and "dumb."

It remains to be seen whether he will appeal the ruling.
