A commercial real estate firm held in contempt of court for failing to hand over records on its appraisals of several Trump Organization properties to New York’s attorney general has turned over nearly 36,000 documents, court filings show.
New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron had found Cushman & Wakefield in contempt last month for not producing documents in state Attorney General Letitia James’ civil probe into the Trump Organization’s business practices and ordered the firm to pay a $10,000-a-day fine until it complied.
In a letter to the judge late Friday, James’ office said it has now “received Cushman’s production, which amounts to about 35,867 documents since entry of this Court’s contempt order.” The letter said the attorney general’s office was joining with Cushman in asking the judge to “dissolve the Contempt Order and hold any contempt purged, without any fines due or owing.”
NY AG James must have a bar bet with GA Fulton County AG Fani Willis about who can bring in Fat Nixon first.
