NEW YORK, Jan 6 (Reuters) – A New York judge on Friday said former U.S. President Donald Trump must face a lawsuit by the state’s attorney general accusing him of fraudulently overvaluing his namesake real estate company’s assets and his own net worth.

Attorney General Letitia James had sued Trump, his adult children Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka and the Trump Organization last September over an alleged scheme to inflate Trump’s assets by billions of dollars through a decade of lies to banks and insurers, in what she called a “staggering” fraud.

Justice Arthur Engoron of the state Supreme Court in Manhattan rejected defense claims that James waited too long to sue, fell short of establishing fraud, and should have better justified the $250 million of damages she is seeking.

“Once again, Donald Trump’s attempts to evade the law have been rejected… we sued Mr. Trump because we found that he engaged in years of extensive financial fraud to enrich himself and cheat the system,” James claimed in a statement.

James cheered on Twitter, “#BREAKING: A judge rejected Donald Trump’s attempt to dismiss our lawsuit against him and the Trump Organization for financial fraud. Today’s decision makes clear yet again that Donald Trump is not above the law.”

Pinned to the top of her Twitter account is James’ announcement from last September that she had filed a lawsuit against Trump, accusing him of “engaging in years of financial fraud to enrich himself, his family, and the Trump Organization.”
