The Roadrunner wins again!
"It is ordered that the motion is granted to the extent of staying enforcement of those portions of the Judgment (1) ordering disgorgement to the Attorney General of $464,576,230.62, conditioned on defendants-appellants posting, within ten (10) days of the date of this order, an undertaking in the amount of $175 million dollars," the two-page order said.

An Appeals Court finally said ENOUGH!

A New York appellate court has ruled that former President Donald Trump can post a lower bond to cover his $464 million civil fraud judgment .

The Appellate Division, First Department said Trump can post a bond "in the amount of $175 million" to cover the judgment.

As Donald Trump said, something like this should never happen again!

Court rules Trump can post lower bond of $175M to cover his fraud judgment (msn.com)

Good for our system of justice for a damn change.

Trump still needs to win his appeal; but at least now he is going to get a chance at the appeal. 

$175 is still a ridiculous amount to put up; and Trump should seek damages from New York on interest, legal costs, and damage to his businesses should he win on appeal.

And so we are in a(nother) holding pattern. . . for a Trump court proceeding to be held down the way. . . .  For an 'news junkie' like myself. . . cable news has been ruined and even become "toxified" as Trump dominates my news "feeds." 

One more thing. I think cable news channels, at this point, should severely limit talking heads who clearly are not up to date on what court decision-making is in these types of issues, cases, and other situations. As it stands. . . they are 'losing' on court speculating more often than not! 

Cable news can do better with the money being shelled out on these case by case news pundits.

1.2.14  CB  replied to  Greg Jones @1.2.13    4 weeks ago

The Appeals Court's logic appears to be that an individual should not have to pay this large amount BEFORE being heard if it causes them to become destitute in the doing so (have to hold a 'fire sale'). That reasoning is sound. Also, it is properly within the realm of the Appeals Court to make about those seeking to come to ITSELF.

Trump has not won victory over the case/judgement. It simply means he will be given a 175 million dollars "entry" into the Appeals Court door to be heard and a decision for or against him. Once he puts up the new amount.

That is reasonable. Moreover, it is something only the Appeals Court could do for him. Not the trial judge.

Yes, much easier after defrauding in the billions to post a $10M bond than defrauding $100M and having to post a bond of $464M a r $175M.  The scale is completely different.

I remember when the Madoff case happened.  That scumbag didn't just defraud corporations and individuals but he stole their money and he defrauded important CHARITIES and deserved to go to jail, but the precedent of the ratio of his bond should have been imposed on Trump.  The fact that no individual lost money from Trump's fraud makes it plain that the necessity of such a massive bond made the accusation of it being a political maneuver blatantly suspect.  I'm no Trump supporter, but believe that justice should be fair and equal for all.

Too bad none of this whataboutism 'analysis' to get Trump out of his legal quagmire is applied to Biden where there is rancor and supposing of his guilt (without evidence or a case). 

That said, court cases are not weighed against other court cases. Especially when one results in civil judgement and the other in arrest/imprisonment. Trump suffered neither of the latter indignities to this date. Bernie Madoff died in prison (2009-2021 deceased.) 

A compassionate release was asked for on Bernie's behalf in 2020 due to the pandemic, and it was denied.

No similarities to Trump's ordeal.

1. There were no victims

This is very important to Mr Trump. He believes there should be no case because "there was no crime".

"No bank was affected. No bank was hurt," he said moments before the start of the trial, noting that all his loans were paid back on time.

Under this New York statute , however, the attorney general did not have to show that there were victims, only that Mr Trump committed ongoing fraud.

Not as delusional as those "Get Trump at all costs" TDS who no longer care about the Constitution or rule of law.

Ones who think the Hur report exonerated Brandon; just like they did with the Comey report on Hillary.

Either the law applies equally to everyone or no one.

Seems the appeals judges finally saw that. The amount Trump has to put up is still ridiculous by any standards; but he at least stands a chance now of getting a bond- or raising it himself. 

Maybe one day everyone will be able to get get equal application under the law. Not that Democrats and leftists won't fight that every step of the way.

Just starting from when he was president we have a whole shitload of obstruction of justice.

Poor, frustrated, myopic MAGA can't see beyond their own navel's lint.

Is CDS taunting like TDS has become?    Inquiring minds want to know how that one gets justified here on NTers.

That's not where they had to be removed from - they were wrapped around something much, much, much, much, much, much smaller that the former 'president's' massive ass.

There is a positive lesson here: Ordinary rank and file citizens need better representation in court. Cost should not be the factor that gets the 'average joe' better court processes. Trump is proving this single point loud and clear.

That is not what I suggested. However, ordinary rank and file citizens as a whole do not get the 'benefit' of all this that this man is getting through better lawyering! It's plainly observable and thus, something is wrong with this picture (for the 'average joes').

Complete and utter BS.

Ordinary rank and file would never be treated like that unless they were a Jan 6th rioter; or a parent that had the temerity to question what their kids were being taught in public schools; or were a member of the Trump family, friend, or legal team.

Just ask the vey large number of Summer of Love not so peaceful protestors that destroyed federal property and attacked federal officers and were never charged. Guess it pays to be a leftist committing a federal, state, or local crime in a bastion of Democrat stupidity run city/state.

That is the job of Garland, Weiss, Hur (who pulled a massive Comey), and the DOJ. All of which whom seem to have forgotten that their role is to represent the American people against criminals like Hunter and Brandon.

Speaking of Weiss could one of you leftists find the rock he crawled back under and drag his ass back out? The coward still hasn't set a court date to Hunter's gun charges; nor filed charges on his tax evasion. The little weasel has already let the statute of limitations on the most serious of Hunter's tax charges. After seven years of him slow walking and obstructing the investigation isn't it about time Hunter actually was in court for a real trial- and not just to sign some sweet heart plea deal that would have granted him complete immunity?

It isn't like a grand jury hasn't already indicted Hunter over 1 year ago.

So why hasn't Weiss moved it to court already? It sure as hell didn't take Smith, and those Democrat DA/AG's this damn long to file charges against Trump and the Jan 6th rioters. Hunter's investigation started in 2018. 6 damn years and counting and nothing to show for for it.

Guess Weiss and Garland only have 8 more months to run  out the clock on before Brandon will be free to pardon Hunter. Once the election is over Brandon will have nothing to lose by doing so. Either he will reelected and a lame duck who doesn't care about his image; or he will be preparing to close up shop and have nothing to lose.

"Find a court"?  That indicates that any "charges" don't have the merit to stand on their own (no surprise there) and you have to find a TDS driven court to even remotely move ahead (again, no surprise there).

"Smirking" is your perception of her. Just like you are inclined to 'remove' from her what you wish to see.  As you can see in the photo she has high cheekbones and so she appears to be smiling moreso than some others naturally. You are intent on "dirtying" up Ms. James for doing the people of the State of New York business for which a judge has joined and approved Ms. James work. As to dealing with the appeals court decision, Ms. James has no choice but to accept it-even as the lower court judge must. That is, for now, it is what it is. She will see about it all in 'Appeals' this fall.

Robby Krieger did some great slide guitar work on that early Door's song.

The killer awoke before dawn
He put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall

How many people can say they have listened the long version of "Light My Fire" in the back of a LC-130 at 30,000 feet flying above the Transantarctic Mountains from the Ammundsen-Scott South Pole Station enroute to McMurdo Station, Antarctica on New Years Eve. I did that in 1987. That was definitely a once in a lifetime experience. I also love the Doors!
