Trump niece files suit vs. family
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.
