Judge Temporarily Blocks 'Tell-all' Book By Trump Niece

A New York judge on Tuesday temporarily halted the publication of a “tell-all” book by Donald Trump’s niece that dubs the US president “the world’s most dangerous man.”

The temporary restraining order prevents the release of the 240-page book until at least a July 10 court hearing that will see Mary Trump and her publisher, Simon & Schuster, defend its publication.

The president’s brother, Robert Trump, had initially asked a court in Queens to issue the temporary restraining order, which was rejected.

He said Mary was violating a non-disclosure agreement she signed in 2001 after the same court settled a contentious fight over the estate of real estate tycoon Fred Trump — the father of Donald and Robert and of Mary’s father Fred Trump Jr, who died in 1981.

The Queens judge said he was not the right jurisdiction to seek an injunction against the book.

The order from Hal Greenwald of the New York Supreme Court now requires Mary and her publisher respond to Robert’s lawsuit.
