Judge rejects temporary pause in enforcement of Trump civil fraud penalties

A New York appellate division judge ruled Wednesday that multimillion-dollar penalties imposed on former President Trump in his civil fraud case will not be paused while he appeals the judgment; however, for now, Trump can apply for loans.  

Justice Anil Singh temporarily denied the former president’s request to stay the enforcement of the more than $454 million in penalties a different New York judge ordered him to pay for conspiring to alter his net worth to receive tax and insurance benefits.  

Trump had offered to post a $100 million bond while the appeals process plays out, writing in court filings that the staggering judgment made it “impossible” to secure a bond covering the full amount. Posting a bond in the full amount would automatically halt enforcement of the penalties.  

However, Singh did grant a temporary pause on two other elements of Judge Arthur Engoron’s ruling earlier this month: that Trump and his co-defendants can’t serve in top leadership positions in any New York business, and that the defendants cannot apply for loans from any New York financial institution.
