Court Rules Donald J. Trump in Contempt of Court for Failure to Comply with Judge’s Order in Attorney General James’ Investigation Judge Rules that Donald J. Trump Must Pay $10,000 Every Day Until He Complies with Orders to Provide Documents to AG’s Office

NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today won a major victory in her office’s ongoing civil investigation into Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization’s financial dealings with a judge ruling that Donald J. Trump is in contempt of court. After hearing arguments earlier today, the Honorable Arthur Engoron of the New York County State Supreme Court ruled that Donald J. Trump is in contempt of court for failing to comply with his previous orders to provide documents to the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) and imposed a $10,000 fine on Mr. Trump for every day that he continues to violate the court’s order to produce these documents.

“Today, justice prevailed,” said Attorney General James. “For years, Donald Trump has tried to evade the law and stop our lawful investigation into him and his company’s financial dealings. Today’s ruling makes clear: No one is above the law.”

In April 2022, Attorney General James took legal action to hold Donald J. Trump in contempt for his refusal to comply with the court’s order to produce documents in response to a subpoena served on him by OAG as part of its ongoing investigation into his financial dealings. The motion for contempt also sought to impose a $10,000 fine on Mr. Trump for every day that he violated the court’s order to produce these documents.
