BREAKING: Trump gag order in NY civil case reinstated after appeal

The gag order prevented Trump and his attorneys from speaking out against Judge Engoron's staff.

On Thursday, a New York appellate court reinstated a gag order placed on Donald Trump and his attorneys by the Manhattan judge overseeing the civil fraud trial against the 2024 GOP frontrunner and his business.

"Upon reading and filing the papers with respect to the motion, and due deliberations having been had thereon, it is ordered that the motion is denied; the interim relief granted by order of a Justice of the Court, dated November 16, 2023, is hereby vacated," the motion stated.

On November 16, the appeals court granted a temporary stay on the gag order while the longer appeals process played out.

The gag order prevented Trump and his attorneys from speaking out against Allison Greenfield, the law clerk of Judge Arthur Engoron who is presiding over the nonjury trial case.

Judge David Friedman of New York’s intermediate appeals court questioned at the time Judge Arthur Engoron’s authority to police Trump’s speech outside the courtroom, adding that while gag orders are common in criminal trials to prevent the comments from influencing a jury, this trial did not have such jury to influence.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
