New York State Court Dismisses Claims Against Ivanka Trump

June 27, 2023

A New York State appeals court on Tuesday dismissed all claims against Ivanka Trump, the former President’s daughter, in Attorney General Letitia James’ lawsuit accusing the Trump Organization of fraud.

The Appellate Division in Manhattan rejected a bid to dismiss the case altogether, but in narrowing the lawsuit the court said statutes of limitations prevented James from suing over transactions that occurred before July 13, 2014, or February 6, 2016, depending on the defendant.

The court ruled that all claims against Ivanka Trump be dismissed because they were too old. 

Last fall, New York State Attorney General Letitia James filed suit against Trump, his companies and its officers including three of Trump’s adult children (now two with Ivanka Trump’s case being dismissed) over allegations of more than 200 instances of bank, tax and insurance fraud over a 10-year period from 2011 to 2021.

The appellate ruling comes after Ivanka Trump in April ditched the attorneys who were defending her as well as her brothers Donald Jr. and Eric, to hire her own, separate representation in the lawsuit.

Former President Trump has called James’ case a political witch hunt. Last August during a deposition in James’ office, he pleaded the fifth more than 400 times.

A trial is scheduled to begin October 2 before Justice Arthur Engoron of the state Supreme Court in Manhattan.
