Trump’s brother files lawsuit seeking to block tell-all family book by niece Mary Trump

This lawsuit seeks to block publication of the tell-all book a day after a New York state court judge tossed out the original case. Robert Trump filed this lawsuit in V. Mary’s book, entitled “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” is set to publish July 28 by Simon & Schuster.

She is the daughter of Fred Trump Jr., the oldest brother who died when Mary was just a teenager.

The lawsuit states that Mary has a non-disclosure agreement with both Robert & Donald Trump as well as their sister, a retired federal appeals judge, Maryanne Trump Berry. This injunction says that the book violates a rule that is handled in issues relating to wills and estates of dead people in their family.

A representative of President Trump states that about 20 years ago, many Trump family members agreed to never publish books about the family. All five agreed that any breach would involve the courts.

“Voluntary contracts ultimately have nothing to do with the First Amendment,” Theodore Boutrous, Mary Trump’s lawyer said. “It is yet another baseless attempt by the Trump family to obtain an unconstitutional prior restraint to block core political speech relating to the President.”

Simon & Schuster says her book is a “revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him.” According to the publication, they look forward to publishing her book and are confident that they were able to publish on time.
