Judge denies Trump’s request to delay $355 million payment

New York Judge Arthur Engoron rejected former President Donald Trump’s request on Thursday to delay payment of the nearly $355 million he owes by an additional 30 days.

Engoron claimed the defendants had failed to produce any justification for the stay request. Lawyers for Trump had requested the stay, claiming they were not given enough time to file a counter-judgment and that New York Attorney General Letitia James was rushing to “memorialize” the judgment.

“Dear Mr. [Clifford] Robert, you have failed to explain, much less justify, any basis for a stay,” Engoron wrote to Trump’s defense lawyer. “I am confident that the Appellate Division will protect your appellate rights.”
