Trump hails court decision dismissing daughter Ivanka from lawsuit

 June 28, 2023

An appeals court has dropped Ivanka Trump as a defendant from the civil fraud case against her father and his business in New York.

The New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division ruled that Ivanka Trump could not be part of the case brought by attorney general Letitia James because the statute of limitations expired. Ivanka Trump left the Trump Organization in 2017 to work for her father in the White House.

President Trump thanked the court for a "big win" against the "Trump hating" James in a Truth Social post.

Ivanka dismissed

James, a Democrat, accuses Trump and his family of fraudulent business practices, but Trump has dismissed the case as part of a political effort to derail his presidential campaign. Trump is leading rival Joe Biden in the polls.

"In conjunction with the DOJ and others, this HOAX is all about Election Interference pertaining to the 2024 Presidential Election," he wrote.

"This is a case that never should have been brought. Thank you to the Appellate Division!"

James wants to slap Trump with a $250 million fine and bar Trump and his family from doing business in New York state.

Those draconian penalties would come on top of mountains of legal fees Trump has already accrued from a blizzard of investigations led by Democrats, including an overtly political and unprecedented criminal case in Manhattan over "hush money."

"Been through hell"

Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner served as advisers in the Trump administration, but they have since distanced themselves from President Trump's political career.

“I love my father very much. This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family. I do not plan to be involved in politics,” Ivanka said last year.

Meanwhile, President Trump has said he doesn't want Jared and Ivanka working for him if he wins a second term, saying his family has "been through hell" on his account.

James, who campaigned on going after Trump, continues to insist there is a "mountain of evidence" against Trump, his adult children and the family business.

The judge overseeing the case has already hit Trump with $110,000 in sanctions, while scolding Trump for pushing "frivolous" claims the case is a "witch hunt."
