Judge Lifts Trump’s Contempt Order With Conditions

CNN reports:

A New York judge on Wednesday lifted the civil contempt finding against former President Donald Trump, assuming certain conditions are met, and ordered him to pay $110,000 in fines.

The judge said all of the conditions — including providing a description of the Trump Organization’s document retention and destruction policy and reviewing the remaining five of 17 boxes tied to Trump and located in on off-site storage facility — must be completed by May 20.

Judge Arthur Engoron also agreed to have Trump place the fine in an escrow account until Trump’s appeal of the contempt ruling is completed. But he told Trump’s attorney: “I want the fine paid. That fine is now $110,000.”
