Another dismissal

Okay, the Bad Ban is suspended – for the moment. But it was not the only legal case which ended badly for members of the Trump family this week.

While the Seattle judge suspended the Muslim Ban, another judge dismissed Mrs Trump’s 150 million US Dollars defamation lawsuit. Mrs Trump took legal action against a UK paper and its website over allegations including one claiming she worked as an escort. The Maryland judge “rejected the attempt because the court lacks jurisdiction to hear a case involving a foreign company.

Mrs Trump’s legal team intends to file the case in New York, where several UK papers do have offices. As the world knows: the Trumps won’t back down, so a suspension or a case being kicked out of court, will not deter them seeking justice elsewhere.
