Former President Donald Trump has withdrawn his lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James.
Trump attorney Honey Rechtin filed a notice of voluntary dismissal without prejudice Friday in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
The filing states that Trump “voluntarily dismisses his claims in this action” against James “without prejudice.”
Trump filed the lawsuit in November claiming James abused her position as attorney general to “recklessly injure” him, his family and his businesses. Trump alleged James was pursuing “a relentless, pernicious, public, and unapologetic crusade” against him “with the stated goal of destroying him personally, financially, and politically.”
per reports from The Hill:
After James filed a civil lawsuit against Trump and his three adult children in September over allegations of business fraud, the former president responded by suing the New York attorney general in November.
Trump claimed that James “abused her position as Attorney General for the State of New York to pursue a vendetta” against him.
In her lawsuit, James accused Trump and his children of falsely inflating and deflating property values to obtain investments and tax and loan benefits, following a three-year investigation into the former president’s business practices.
