Former President Trump on Monday appealed a judge's decision ordering him to pay more than $450 million in the New York attorney general's sprawling civil fraud case against his business empire.

Judge Arthur Engoron's decision earlier this month marked a stunning legal and financial blow to the former president, barring him from serving in a leadership role in any New York business for three years and ordering independent officials to monitor Trump's companies.

The decision followed a months-long trial after which the judge determined Trump and top executives for years conspired to alter his net worth to receive tax and insurance benefits.

Trump's appeal was expected because he and his lawyers have attacked the judge's ruling as politically motivated and a "manifest injustice" for days. Trump has denied any wrongdoing.

"We trust that the Appellate Division will overturn this egregious fine and take the necessary steps to restore the public faith in New York's legal system," Trump attorney Alina Habba said in a statement.

With Trump's notice of appeal formally filed, the case will head to the First Judicial Department Appellate Division, where the former president will seek to get the nine-figure fine and the other penalties tossed.

The New York attorney general's office declined to comment.

The appeal comes after Trump's attorneys sought to delay enforcement of the $454 million sum by 30 days to "protect" the former president's appellate rights. Engoron last week declined to do so.

"You have failed to explain, much less justify, any basis for a stay," Engoron responded to the request. "I am confident that the Appellate Division will protect your appellate rights."

Trump is also responsible for paying additional interest on the stunning fine if it is upheld. The clock began when Engoron entered judgment and has been climbing by tens of thousands of dollars per day.

New York Attorney Letitia James (D) has needled the former president by posting the updated amount each day on X, formerly known as Twitter.

While Engoron's ruling won't shutter Trump's company, it could significantly shake up its organization and leave the namesake family business without a Trump at its helm for the first time.

Beyond the penalties against Trump, his two adult sons, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr., are banned from serving in leadership roles in New York businesses for two years.

The judge also expanded the authority of an independent monitor to oversee the Trump Organization's finances and imposed fines against Trump's sons and top company executives.

You mean why did Putin make the statement that he wanted Biden to win?  Possibly to win over Trump's simple minded followers by implying that Trump is not just a handy stooge for Putin?

The only thing standing between Putin and USSR ver. 2, is NATO.  Putin's puppet Trump will do everything he can to eliminate NATO if elected into office again.

Trump lies and the left conveniently chooses which lies to believe and argue about.

Where in the world did you hear that from?  Breitbart or something?

Trump lies more than any other politician by orders of magnitude, however he does accidently let some truth through every now and then.

Of course it was proven.  It was just a matter of the amount of the judgement.  

What a judgement!!!!!!!!!!!!

The former 'president' doesn't think he should have to put up bond and that his vast fortune/wealth was known and that he would pay eventually.

You need to keep up if you find the need to jump into a conversation. We were discussing Trump's supposed threat to the NATO nations. Not the fraudulent fraud trial.

The turd traitor - that's twice a traitor that we know of - who knows what secrets and documents he's sold to the highest bidder.

So you have absolutely ZERO evidence he sold anything, but still persist?

Why?

So you made a claim that you acknowledge you have no way of knowing if true or not.  Then why the fuck did you make the claim????

Now you are mistaking Traitor Joe for the previous POTUS.  Or did you forget it wasn't' until Traitor Joe took office that Putin attacked Ukraine?

Why?

Isn't that the norm for the left.  One in this thread can't prove fraud, another can't prove anything was bought or sold.  They all claim Trump is a pathological lair yet believe what he says.  

And yet they expect to be taken seriously.

I suggest you look at the comment you relied to.  There was no mention of Trump or Trump's statement in it.

You accidently spoke the truth.
