Federal Judge Rejects Trump’s Request To Toss His Foundation Lawsuit

A federal judge in New York has rejected a request by President Donald Trump’s lawyers to dismiss a state lawsuit alleging he ran his charitable foundation without regard for the law.

In a devastating ruling posted Friday, State Supreme Court Justice Saliann Scarpulla rebuffed the Trump team’s contention that the lawsuit was politically motivated.

The judge said that given the seriousness of the allegations, there’s no basis for finding that “animus and bias were the sole motivating factors” for the state’s lawsuit.
