Trump gets temporary reprieve of testifying in Bronx civil trial

President Donald Trump does not need to apologize to get a Bronx civil trial between his bodyguards — at least not yet.

A state appeals court in New York issued a stay at Bronx Supreme Court Justice Doris Gonzalez’s judgment last week which Trump”look for a videotaped deposition before the trial” of a bunch of protesters who believed that they were attacked by the then-candidate’s bodyguards out Trump Tower at 2015.

The state Appellate Division also briefly remained the trial, which was set to start on Thursday. Gonzalez’s judgment had stated that Trump’s testimony is”crucial” to the circumstance.

Trump’s attorneys maintained he should not need to testify due to his responsibilities as president.

The Appellate Division stated it would determine that the appeal on an expedited basis.

“We’re happy that the Court has agreed to designate this situation as expedited and expect a quick resolution of the subject. We’re convinced that the Appellate Division will concur with Hon. Justice Doris Gonzalez which Mr. Trump is subject to exactly the very same principles and processes that govern each of defendants within our civil justice system” said an attorney for the plaintiffs, Benjamin Dictor.
