Former President Donald Trump has appealed a gag order placed on him by a New York state judge overseeing his civil fraud case.

The gag order was issued due to Trump’s social media posts referencing the judge and his staff.

According to The Washington Examiner, “Engoron contends his principal law clerk, Allison Greenfield, has sustained harassing and antisemitic messages ever since Trump posted a picture of her with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and referred to her as his ‘girlfriend’ on Oct. 4, the second day of the civil fraud trial against the Trump Organization.”

“Trump was ordered to delete the social media post and entered a gag order against him that day. Engoron has ruled Trump has violated the order twice and fined him a total of $15,000 so far, a fee Trump has already paid out,” the report continued.

“The order has since been expanded to block Trump’s attorneys from commenting about his communications with the clerk, who sits next to Engoron during the trial.”

Additionally, there are legal challenges to keep Trump off the 2024 ballot in several states, with parties filing briefs and appeals related to the constitutional eligibility of Trump to appear on the ballot.

These challenges are being addressed by state and federal courts.
