Court Smacks Down Ivanka Trump’s ‘Undue Hardship’ Claim

WRAL News

Former First Daughter Ivanka Trump has been ordered by Judge Arthur Engoron to testify in person at the fraud trial involving her father, former President Donald Trump.

Ivanka had filed a motion for a stay, claiming that testifying would cause undue hardship, but the motion was denied.

“Ms. Trump, who resides in Florida with her three minor children, will suffer undue hardship if a stay is denied and she is required to testify at trial in New York in the middle of a school week, in a case she has already been dismissed from, before her appeal is heard,” an attorney stated.

The trial, brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James, accuses the Trump family of fraud.

James argued that Ivanka has firsthand knowledge relevant to the case and that delaying her testimony would disrupt the fair resolution of the trial.

“Ms. Trump’s arguments are based on the false premise that witnesses with relevant, firsthand knowledge may be called to testify only if they are ‘a primary actor’ in the case,” James stated.

“Ms. Trump’s mere need to attend trial for a single day to testify truthfully is not itself a serious harm that warrants emergency relief.”

The appeal underlying the motion for a stay is still ongoing.
