Washington — A New York State Supreme Court judge has temporarily halted publication of a tell-all book written by President Trump’s niece set to hit shelves next month.
Judge Hal Greenwald issued an order granting a request by Robert Trump, the president’s younger brother, that blocks Mary Trump and Simon & Schuster, the book’s publisher, from printing or distributing her upcoming book “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” in “any medium containing descriptions or accounts of” Mary Trump’s relationship with the president and his siblings.
Mary Trump, Simon & Schuster and their attorneys must appear before the court July 10. Simon & Schuster is a division of ViacomCBS.
The book is set to be released July 28 and is described by Simon & Schuster as a “revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him.” Mary Trump is the daughter of Mr. Trump’s older brother, Fred Trump Jr., who died more than 30 years ago.
Charles Harder, the attorney who is representing Robert Trump, said the president’s younger brother is “very pleased” with the injunction against Mary Trump and Simon & Schuster, and called their actions “truly reprehensible.”
