Law & Crime reports:
A federal judge in New York City denied President Donald Trump‘s request to enjoin an order that allows Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance to subpoena the 45th president’s tax returns and other financial records on Friday morning.
On Thursday, Southern District of New York (SDNY) District Judge Victor Marrero issued a lengthy ruling that dismissed Trump’s lawsuit with prejudice–prompting the court’s clerk to note that the president’s “case is closed” in the New York court system.
Yesterday’s ruling paved the way for Vance to finally re-issue and enforce his subpoenas against Trump’s accounting firm, Mazars USA LLP–the first subpoenas were filed late last year.
