Trump Loses Bid for Mistrial in New York Civil Fraud Case

The former president has accused the judge, his clerk of being politically biased

On Friday, a New York judge rejected Donald Trump's bid for a mistrial in state Attorney General Letitia James' civil fraud lawsuit against him, after the former U.S. president accused the judge and his law clerk of being politically biased.

Justice Arthur Engoron of the New York state court in Manhattan said he could not "in good conscience" let Trump pursue a mistrial request that was "utterly without merit."

James has accused Trump, his adult sons, his company, and other defendants of manipulating financial statements, asset values and Trump's net worth to defraud banks and insurers.
