Judge Dismisses Trump’s Lawsuit Against The New York Times

The former president was ordered to pay the newspaper's legal expenses

A New York judge dismissed former President Donald Trump's lawsuit against The New York Times on Wednesday, saying the newspaper's Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation into his finances was clearly protected by the First Amendment.

When Trump filed the lawsuit in 2021, he accused the paper and three of its reporters of conspiring in an "insidious plot" with his estranged niece, Mary Trump, to improperly obtain his confidential tax records for a series of stories published in 2018.

In a ruling filed on Wednesday afternoon, Justice Robert Reed of State Supreme Court in Manhattan wrote that Trump's claims against The Times and its reporters "fail as a matter of constitutional law."
