Trump appeals ruling in massive NY civil fraud case

 Former President Trump's legal team has appealed New York Judge Arthur Angoron's decision to hold him liable for more than $350 million in damages in a civil fraud case brought against him by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

With interest, the total amount owed to Trump currently stands at more than $354 million, with interest accruing about $112,000 per day since the verdict.

In James' case, Trump's family and Trump Organization were also targeted. Angoron ruled that Trump and the defendants committed "persistent and repeated fraud," "falsifying business records," "issuing false financial statements," "conspiracy to falsify false financial statements," "insurance fraud, " and were liable for "conspiracy to commit insurance fraud." ,

The judge criticized Trump's behavior during the trial, saying that he "rarely answered the questions asked, and he often gave long, irrelevant speeches on issues beyond the scope of the trial."

Trump lawyer Christopher Keese responded to the decision earlier this month by teasing plans for an appeal, saying the court "ignored the law, ignored the facts, and acted unfairly against the candidate running for attorney general." Signed off on a clearly unjust political crusade by the President of the United States."

Who said, "Legal cases should be decided on the basis of applying established legal principles to actual evidence." "During the 44 days of hearings, not a single witness, not a single complaint, and not a single victim supported the Attorney General's fabricated claims of 'fraud.' Moreover, the evidence shows that President Trump's net worth The assets are much greater than what is stated in their financial statements."

James's office had requested that Angoron ban Trump, his sons and other defendants from applying for loans in New York for five years, in addition to barring the Trump Organization from handling any real estate business for the same period. Stopped from.

In September, Angoron ruled that Trump and the Trump Organization defrauded banks, insurers and others while building their real estate empire by overvaluing their assets and overvaluing the paperwork used in making deals and securing financing. Inflated his net worth.

"They ruled against me without knowing anything about me," Trump said on his stand during the trial last year. "He called me a fraud, and he didn't know anything about me."
