Trump Family Attempt To Suppress Niece Mary’s Book Fails In Court

Attorney Ted Boutrous shared Thursday that a court had ruled against the Trump family’s attempt to suppress Mary Trump’s book about the family dynamics. Mary’s book is said to contain information about the relationships between Donald and his parents. As an expert in psychology, she dissects these relationships and explains how they resulted in the man who would become the 45th president of the United States. Donald Trump has claimed Mary could not publish her book, because of a non-disclosure agreement.

The Hour reported yesterday that Donald Trump’s brother Robert was attempting to have Mary’s book publication stopped, facing her in court and citing that same non-disclosure agreement. However, that NDA was specifically as a result of a dispute about the handling of Fred Trump Sr.’s estate — and according to The Daily Beast, Queens County Surrogate Court Judge Peter Kelly said that the book has no impact on the administration of the estate, and dismissed the case.

Mary’s attorney, Ted Boutrous, shared a statement on Twitter.

Donald Trump, who also recently failed to convince the legal system to suppress John Bolton’s book about his time in the White House, said recently that his niece would be violating the non-disclosure agreement by publishing the book.

He said the NDA was “very powerful” and “covers everything.

Though the Trump family’s attempt to suppress the book failed this round, Robert Trump’s attorney, Charles Harder, says that it will be refiled in the New York State Supreme Court. The book, Too Much And Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, is scheduled for publication on July 28.
