A New York Supreme Court judge on Monday ordered the Trump Organization to turn over documents to New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office by next month, as prosecutors move forward with a civil investigation into potential fraud.
The ruling from Judge Arthur Engoron said the Trump Organization must provide a substantial amount of documents to the AG by April 15 and fully comply with the subpoena by April 29.
The AG’s office is seeking electronic records from the Trump Organization as part of a probe into whether the company fraudulently misvalued properties.
Engoron ordered a Republican-tied outside firm The Trump Organization hired to identify and turn over records, HaystackID, to provide weekly updates going forward on its progress, as it’s unclear at this point how close the Trump Organization has come to complying with the subpoena.
The Trump Organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Forbesbut its attorney Larry Rosen said in court Monday the company has given “900,000 documents, 6 million pages” to the AG’s office, according to the New York Daily News,
