Trump Appeals New York Gag Order

  • Former President Donald Trump has appealed a gag order on Monday, seeking to overturn the restriction that prevents him from discussing a judge’s law clerk to the New York Court of Appeals.
  • The appeal comes less than a week after a lower court reinstated the gag order. Trump has been under a limited gag order since the early weeks of his civil business fraud trial in October, stemming from social media posts that referenced Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron’s staff.
  • The filing indicating Trump’s appeal was recorded on the New York Appellate Division, First Judicial Department docket.
