A New York judge has granted a temporary restraining order preventing the publication of a book written by President Donald Trump’s niece that aims to release supposedly embarrassing allegations about the Trump family.
Mary Trump, the daughter of the president’s late older brother, Fred Trump Jr., has teased a tell-all that targets her family.
The book, titled “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” was due out on July 28 before the state Supreme Court justice ordered that it remain under wraps.
Bloomberg reported that Mary Trump and the book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, were ordered Tuesday by Justice Hal Greenwald in Poughkeepsie, New York, to refrain from releasing the book or any excerpts at all.
That order also bars the president’s niece from releasing any information in the book to the media.
A lawsuit filed by Robert Trump, the president’s younger brother, argued that the information in the book was a violation of a 20-year-old secrecy agreement.
An attorney for Mary Trump vowed to file an appeal.
