Lawyers for former President Donald Trump on Friday urged U.S. District Judge Brenda Sannes of the Northern District of New York to block New York Attorney General Letitia James’ civil investigation of his business practices.

Trump’s attorney Alina Habba of Habba Madaio & Associates reiterated the Trump team’s argument that James’ investigation is politically motivated, arguing that James has made her “hatred” of Trump “obvious” through public statements before and after James took office.
