Robert Trump filed the suit Tuesday in a Queens court, arguing the book’s publication would violate a confidentiality agreement from the settlement of the will of Fred Trump, the president and Robert’s father. The non-disclosure clause reportedly stipulated the family would not “publish any account concerning the litigation or their relationship,” unless agreed upon by all parties.
The probate court argued that it was not the proper forum to hear the case. Charles Harder, Robert Trump’s attorney, said they would refile in Manhattan.
“The court has promptly and correctly held that it lacks jurisdiction to grant the Trump family’s baseless request to suppress a book of utmost public importance and concern. We hope this decision will end the matter,” Mary Trump’s attorney Ted Boutrous said in a statement.
Mary’s book is titled, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.” Its release date is Sunday.
