NY Judge Engoron Under Fire For Comments Made During Trump Fraud Trial

via Forbes Breaking News

Legal expert Michael Conway has cautioned New York Judge Arthur Engoron about his language and behavior during the $250 million civil fraud trial involving former President Donald Trump.

Conway highlighted instances of Engoron’s confrontations with Trump’s legal team, emphasizing that such behavior could be used against him in an appeal.

Engoron’s interactions with his chief law clerk and his handling of mistrial requests were also scrutinized, with allegations of bias and concerns about the clerk’s political affiliations. (Trending: Tucker Reveals The Moment He Became A Full-Blown Trump Supporter)

“In New York, Engoron has used strident language in rejecting Trump’s legal positions, terming them ‘pure sophistry,’ ‘risible,’ ‘bogus arguments,’ and ‘egregious’ in his summary judgment opinion,” Conway wrote.

“He sanctioned five Trump attorneys for $7,500 each for the ‘borderline frivolous’ arguments in their briefs.”

“Harsh language isn’t a problem if it’s justified.”

“But the more Engoron pushes the envelope, the more he risks an appellate court disagreeing with his assessment.”

“And Trump’s lawyers can and will argue the judge’s rhetoric is evidence of judicial bias,” Conway added.

“There are other examples of Engoron seemingly overreacting in response to relentless complaining from Trump’s lawyers,” adding, “He needs to take all necessary steps to ensure that a New York appellate court cannot overturn his decision.”

“And that means not reacting to Trump’s hate-filled speech or his lawyers’ baiting and provocation. It’s simply not worth it.”

“When an online publication mentions a graduate, including myself, I include an excerpt and/or a link, usually both,” Engoron said.

“Consequently, I have been the subject of entries concerning this case due to its undeniable newsworthiness.”

“However, I neither wrote nor contributed to any of the articles on which defendants focus, and no reasonable reader could think otherwise,” he added.

Trump’s attorneys have raised objections about Engoron’s conduct and his chief law clerk’s involvement in the trial, suggesting that she seems to have a significant influence on the proceedings.
