A New York City judge has dismissed a claim by Donald Trump’s brother that sought to halt the publication of a tell-all book by the president’s niece. In a ruling Thursday, Judge Peter Kelly said the Surrogates Court lacked jurisdiction in the case.
Mary Trump is the daughter of Fred Trump Jr., the president’s elder brother, who died in 1981. An online description of her book, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man," says it reveals “a nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse.”
Mary Trump's book was the second book Trump's league team attempted to stop from publishing in recent weeks. The president also tried to block the publication of former National Security Adviser John Bolton's book. Trump lost the suit, as his legal team claimed that the book contained classified information.
