Judge Blocks Release of Tell-All Book by Trump’s Niece, Mary

President Trump speaks in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington

Judge Hal Greenwald, based in Poughkeepsie, New York, issued a temporary restraining order on Tuesday at the request of President Trump and Robert Trump, his brother.

Mr Trump had said the publication- "Too Much and Never Enough, How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man"- "would violate a nondisclosure agreement Mary Trump previously signed". An online description of it says it reveals "a nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse". "She explains how specific events and general family patterns created the damaged man who now occupies the Oval Office".

Ms Trump, 55, is the daughter the President Trump's elder brother, Fred Trump Jr, who died in 1981.

Robert Trump, the president's brother, filed a suit last week in NY in Queens County Surrogate court, where the estate of the president's father, Fred Trump Sr., was settled after his death in 1999.

Judge Hal Greenwald of the Dutchess County Supreme Court in upstate NY on Tuesday barred Mary Trump and publisher Simon & Schuster from releasing the book, which is slated to hit shelves on July 28. It is also expected to include claims by Mary Trump that she was the main source behind a 2018 New York Times piece on the president's taxes.

His attorney Charles Harder said in a statement Tuesday that he would seek the "maximum remedies available" for the "truly reprehensible" actions of Mary Trump and her publisher, which he said have caused "enormous damages" to his client.

He added: "Short of corrective action to immediately cease their egregious conduct, we will pursue this case to the very end".

Carl Reiner Dies, Comedy Legend and Iconic Director Was 98
But CBS ultimately picked up the series in 1961, after it was recast and retitled for its new star, " The Dick Van Dyke Show ". Recruited into a special unit that put on shows for the troops, Reiner began writing and performing his own comedy material.

The judge's order said that the July 10 hearing will be for Mary Trump and publishers Simon & Schuster, Inc.to argue why the book should not be kept under wraps for the duration of the case. Both a representative for Simon & Schuster and an attorney for Mary Trump told ABC News they intend to appeal the ruling.

Their lawyer Theodore Boutrous called Greenwald's order a "prior restraint on core political speech that flatly violates the First Amendment" of the U.S. Constitution.

Robert Trump argues Mary Trump must comply with a written agreement among family members who settled a dispute over Fred Trump's will that a book about them can not be published without their permission.

"We will immediately appeal".

President Trump said in an interview with The Post a year ago that he made mistakes in dealing with his brother and regretted pushing him to join the family business.

"You know, when we settled with her and her brother, who I do have a good relationship with - she's got a brother, Fred [Trump], who I do have a good relationship with, but when we settled, she has a total. signed a nondisclosure", he said in the interview.
