- The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has ruled against President Trump's efforts to shield his tax returns from New York City's district attorney Cy Vance.
- The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has agreed to stay enforcement of New York City's subpoena.
- The appeals court is allowing the president to appeal one more time to the U.S. Supreme Court, which currently only has 8 members.
- Currently, any tie on the Supreme Court would let the appeals court ruling stand, meaning New York City could immediately enforce its subpoena if there was a tie on the Court.
NEW YORK -- President Donald Trump’s accountant must turn over his tax records to a New York state prosecutor, an appeals court ruled Wednesday in a decision that likely sets up a second trip to the U.S. Supreme Court over the issue.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said in a written decision that a stay of a lower-court decision will remain in effect so Trump’s lawyers can appeal the ruling to the high court.
In August, a district court judge had rejected their renewed efforts to invalidate a subpoena that the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. issued to Trump’s accounting firm last year.
