New York judge sets fraud trial date for Trump

November 24, 2022 00:00:00

NEW YORK, Nov 23 (AFP): Donald Trump and his three eldest children will go on trial late next year in a civil lawsuit brought by New York's attorney general that accuses them of fraud, a judge ruled Tuesday.

Justice Arthur Engoron of the Manhattan Supreme Court set a trial date of October 2, 2023 in the case that alleges Trump and his family members misstated the value of properties to enrich themselves.

The trial-and a host of criminal, civil and congressional probe cases that Trump is facing-will likely complicate the ex-president's run for a second term in office, which he announced last week.

The date, which Trump attorneys are likely to try to delay, would come close to the start of primaries season for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
