A federal judge on Thursday temporarily barred New York officials from any effort to release President Donald Trump’s state tax returns to U.S. House Democrats while the state and lawyers for the president fight over whether the Washington trial court is the proper venue for the dispute.

U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols of the District of Columbia said this week that Trump’s lawsuit against New York and the House Ways and Means Committee presented a “conundrum.” House Democrats have not yet made the request that Trump is suing to block. Still, Nichols sympathized with the president’s concern that House Democrats could ask for the tax returns at any moment and New York could turn them over without any notice.
