BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Trump seeks six-month delay in New York fraud case

Trump seeks six-month delay in New York fraud case

(Reuters) — Donald Trump is seeking a six-month delay to meet deadlines for gathering evidence in the New York attorney general’s fraud case against the former U.S. president.

The request if granted would likely push back the scheduled Oct. 2 trial well into 2024, deep into that year's presidential campaign. Mr. Trump is seeking a second White House term.

In a Friday filing in a New York state court in Manhattan, Mr. Trump said that “fundamental notions of fair play and due process” justified delaying Attorney General Letitia James' $250 million case.

He said a delay was justified by the “staggering” volume of material and dozens of potential witnesses to question, and that talks with Ms. James' office on an “amicable resolution” broke down.

Mr. Trump's request was joined by the other defendants, including his children Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka and the Trump Organization.

Ms. James' office did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The defendants are seeking deadlines of Sept. 29 for fact discovery, Dec. 5 for expert witness discovery, and Dec. 8 to provide a certificate of readiness for trial.

James sued Mr. Trump and the other defendants in September over their alleged roles in a decade-long scheme to manipulate asset values and Mr. Trump's net worth to win better terms from banks and insurers.
