A federal judge in Washington dismissed President Trump’s lawsuit seeking to block the House Ways and Means Committee from using a recently enacted New York law to request his state tax returns, saying that for now the case belongs before a judge in New York.
The decision by U.S. District Judge Carl J. Nichols injected new urgency into Trump’s effort to shield his state tax records from Congress.
The article goes on to state the following:
The House panel, chaired by Rep. Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.), has not requested Trump’s state returns. Trump’s attorneys filed the lawsuit in July preemptively, arguing that without an emergency court order blocking a congressional request, his New York returns might be disclosed before the president’s opposition could be heard in court.
According to the report, Nichols dismissed the New York state defendants and gave Trump the option of refiling his lawsuit against them in New York over the next seven days.
A federal judge has tossed Trump’s attempt to get a DC judge to block New York’s law that provides a way to get his tax returns.
NBC’s Pete Williams describes this rulings as the judge saying: “Not in my court. I have no jurisdiction. Go to a court in New York and sue there.” https://t.co/yhDc0obnYm
