Donald Trump’s name is beginning to become synonymous with words like lawsuit, judge, judgment, and other related legal terms. In recent weeks alone, his attempt to have a case naming him has having incited violence at his Louisville, KY campaign rally thrown out was unsuccessful. One of the main perpetrators in that case has now come out and stated for the record that he assaulted a passive protester, because of Trump’s inflammatory language.
In recent weeks Trump also saw next steps unfold after having been sued by thousands regarding his now defunct Trump University that is said to have scammed students out of their money. The Muslim ban remains in ongoing litigation.
The city of San Francisco and Santa Clara County, CA have also taken the Trump administration to court. The aforementioned examples of Trump’s legal battles are an extremely abridged overview, but give glimpse as to just how embattled he already is.
Simply put, personally and as a representative of the United States, Donald Trump has been in court as much as he has been to his Mar a Lago resort. Adding one more notch to his belt of legal issues, the Miami Herald reports that Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Jorge Cueto ruled that Trump’s Doral Miami Resort owes Miami-based The Paint Spot $32,535.87 for paint used during upgrades at the resort.
Cueto furthered ruled that Trump owes The Paint Spot’s legal counsel $282,949.91. The total judgment against Trump? Over $315,000! Having argued that the Miami paint store didn’t follow Florida laws, Judge Cueto and the appellate court that heard the case, shot Trump’s arguments down. Part of the appellate court’s findings read:
‘. . .we hold that the trial court correctly determined that Paint Spot substantially complied with the provisions of section 713.06(2)(a), (b), and (c), and that Paint Spot strictly complied with the time requirements of subsection (2)(a). We further hold that Trump failed to establish that it was adversely affected by the error contained in the NTO. We also affirm the final judgment awarding attorney’s fees.’

@Nysteveo2AOLcom He’s broke. And up to his ass in debt with foreign powers.

@Nysteveo2AOLcom Trump considers money not paid to people he owes as a source of Revenue as far as his financial records are concerned.
