A court in New York has ordered the publication of a book by President Donald trump’s niece Mary to be suspended, Politico reported, citing the court’s decision.
Judge Hal Greenwald in the city of Poughkeepsie issued a temporary order banning the publication of the book at the request of the President’s brother, Robert Trump. He claims that the book violates a non-disclosure agreement made with the heirs of Robert and Donald’s father, Fred Trump, who died in 1999.
The book was supposed to be released on July 28, but the court order does not allow Simon & Schuster to print and distribute the book until the court makes a permanent decision on the case.
The lawyer for Mary Trump and the publisher, Ted Boutrous, said he would appeal. According to him, the restriction of political publications violates the principle of freedom of speech.
Robert Trump’s lawyer, Charles Harder, called the book “disgusting.” According to him, if Mary Trump does publish it, she will be required to pay damages.
The content of the book is still unknown, but its title speaks about the niece’s attitude to the uncle-President. The book is called ” Too much and not enough: how my family created the world’s most dangerous man.”
