Frequently Asked Questions

What happened to Donald Trump's lawsuit against the courts?

Naturally, this found its way back to Trump, who was not appreciative of the commonality. In response, a lawsuit was filed that would linger in court for five years. The Donald’s suit was eventually dismissed, and the other Trumps were denied damages on their countersuit.

What legal challenges have been filed against Trump's policies?

Legal challenges have also been filed against Trump’s plan to withhold federal funding from so-called sanctuary cities and his order directing all federal agencies to eliminate two rules for every new rule issued.

Will trump's civil lawsuits do more harm than good?

The civil cases could certainly do their fair share of damage as well, directly or indirectly. If Trump falters in one of his business-related suits, his companies may be subject to massive penalties, or worse.

Should Trump's case go to arbitration?

Trump’s lawyers said in a July 19 court filing that they planned to argue the case should go to arbitration even though Trump wasn’t named in the contracts that investors signed with ACN and he didn’t sign them.
