Trump niece files suit vs. fam­ily

The Times-Tribune - - NATION & WORLD -

Don­ald Trump’s niece fol­lowed up her best-sell­ing, tell-all book with a law­suit Thurs­day al­leg­ing that the pres­i­dent and two of his sib­lings cheated her out of mil­lions of dol­lars over sev­eral decades while squeez­ing her out of the fam­ily busi­ness.

Mary L. Trump sought un­spec­i­fied dam­ages in the law­suit, filed in a state court in New York City. “Fraud was not just the fam­ily busi­ness — it was a way of life,” the law­suit said.

The law­suit al­leged the pres­i­dent, his brother Robert, and a sis­ter, the former fed­eral judge Maryanne Trump Barry, por­trayed them­selves as Mary Trump’s pro­tec­tors while se­cretly tak­ing her share of in­ter­ests in the fam­ily’s real es­tate hold­ings.
