In a recent development, a New York judge has found former President Donald Trump in contempt and imposed a daily fine of $10,000 for his failure to adhere to a subpoena requesting the submission of several financial documents to New York Attorney General Letitia James, Your Content has learned.

This decision was made public on Monday, as reported by Your Content.

During the hearing on Monday, State Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron addressed Trump directly, emphasizing the importance of treating legal matters seriously.

The judge’s ruling came in response to James’ office’s request to hold Trump in contempt after accusing him of missing the previously agreed-upon deadline.

The subpoena required Trump to submit eight personal financial documents to investigators, which he claimed were unable to be located, according to his attorney. Consequently, the judge imposed the daily fine as a punitive measure.

New York Attorney General Letitia James expressed her satisfaction with the court’s decision, stating that justice had been served.

An attorney from James’ office compared the arduous process of obtaining documents from the Trump Organization to “pulling teeth” during the court proceedings.

It is important to note that the contempt charge could potentially be lifted if Trump or his attorney submits a sworn affidavit affirming that they made every effort to locate the requested documents, according to CBS News.
