Donald Trump Is In Hot Water Over The Music Choice At His Campaign Launch


Quote:
Another day, another lawsuit against Donald Trump. Billboard reported after the former president announced his third presidential run, Trump is facing legal action for music used during his launch. But this is nothing new for the 45th president. According to Billboard, many artists have "vociferously objected" to Trump using their music at his MAGA rallies over the years, including Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Panic! at the Disco, Rihanna, and many more. But some of the musical choices stand out. The song Trump played during his final departure had people talking. The 45th president played Frank Sinatra's "My Way" as one of his departure songs, and Sinatra's former wife, Mia Farrow, tweeted: "Frank would have loathed Donald Trump." Sinatra's daughter Nancy replied, "He actually did loathe him."


But the January 6 insurrection took artists' objections to a new level. The manager for singer Laura Branigan was livid after watching a viral video showing the Trump family dancing to "Gloria" before the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Kathy Golik tweeted it was "absolutely appalling" to hear Branigan's hit song played before the tragic events of January 6. Golik tweeted: It's very sad & upsetting to see Laura's beautiful memory & legacy have any association w/ Pres. Trump & such a dark day in U.S. history." After leaving office, some hoped the former president would change some of his ways. But Trump is in hot water for his music choice at his 2024 campaign launch.

Isaac Hayes' Estate Threatens Legal Actions Against Donald Trump For Music Played At 2024 Presidential Launch

Everything we know about a 2024 Donald Trump campaign shows that he'll probably keep breaking the rules. After Trump's presidential launch, Isaac Hayes' estate threatened legal actions for music played at his 2024 campaign announcement. On November 15, the music legend's estate tweeted: "Once again, The estate and family of Isaac Hayes DID NOT approve the use of 'Hold on I'm Coming' by Sam and Dave by Donald Trump at his 2024 Presidential announcement tonight. We are exploring multiple legal options to stop this unauthorized use." The estate of Hayes continued by tweeting: "Stopping a politician from using your music is not always an easy task, but we are dedicated to making sure that Donald Trump does not continue to use 'Hold on I'm Coming' ... written by Isaac Hayes and David Porter in further rallies and public appearances."


Fans shared their support. One fan tweeted: "Trump has been known for using music that he has not been approved to do because he just does what he wants and doesn't care. I hope you have legal avenues to put a stop to it." Another fan tweeted: "Such a fabulous song -- perfect lyrics. Just not for ... him. Go get him, @isaachayes family!" The R&B music legend had many fans on Twitter, with another fan tweeting: "Go after him!!!!!! Not only is it theft, but it's a slap in the face to a great song."

so close... i believe all sexual assault documents including nda's or criminal activity if you run for any political office should be mandatorily disclosed. and ifyou do not turn one over to the public, any person aware of one can get a reward of 50k each for disclosing it and the person who did not disclose it has to pay that fine.

ya us dems are tough on crime. right wingers will not go for this..

Biden signs #MeToo law curbing confidentiality agreements

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden had acted on the bipartisan Speak Out Act, which bars the use of nondisclosure agreements that employees or contractors are required to sign, often as a condition of employment.

The new law, among the workplace changes pushed in the wake of the #MeToo movement, applies to any nondisclosure agreements, also known as NDAs, signed before a dispute has occurred.

“Instead of protecting trade secrets as it was initially intended, abusive use of NDAs silence employees and covers up serious and systemic misconduct,” said New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat who introduced the measure.

The law would make existing nondisclosure agreements unenforceable. It also would apply to any agreements between providers of goods and services and their customers.

Gillibrand cited massage parlors and assisted living facilities as examples of places where mandatory NDAs have been used.

Any agreements signed after a dispute or regarding any other allegations, such as discrimination based on race or religion, would not be affected by the law.

Employers and consumers sometimes unknowingly sign away their rights with the agreements and that allows harassment to continue by silencing victims and shielding perpetrators, a group of Democratic and Republican lawmakers said in a statement last month after the House passed the measure on a 315-109 vote.

“Today, 1 in 3 workers is subjected to NDAs that hide sexual misconduct in order to protect a business’s reputation,” the lawmakers said. “We’re taking the gag off of survivors and pushing businesses to create safer work environments.”

The Senate approved the measure unanimously.

Former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, who accused the now-deceased network CEO Roger Ailes of making unwanted advances and harming her career when she rejected him, pushed for the change and has spoken about how the NDA she signed has barred her from telling her story.

The law would not apply to Carlson’s NDA, which was signed as part of a reported $20 million settlement with Fox News.

The law follows another bipartisan change Biden approved in March that gave workplace victims of sexual assault or harassment the right to seek resource in the courts rather than being forced to settle cases through arbitration. The process often benefits employers and keeps allegations from becoming public.

Both measures, coming five years after the #MeToo movement sparked a global reckoning against sexual misconduct, received rare, broad bipartisan support in Congress.

Gillibrand said she is working with South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who partnered with her on the bills, to pass similar laws related to age discrimination in the workplace.

not sure why this was sealed before the election when Trump was not running for office, should have been disclosed that he and his company were guilty of obstruction. again the penalty is also laughable, Obstruction should be 10 percent of the stockholders claimed wealth per week.

Trump Organization lost secret criminal contempt trial


Quote:
The Trump Organization was held in criminal contempt in a secret trial last fall for failing to comply with several grand jury subpoenas and court orders related to a criminal tax fraud investigation, according to court documents unsealed on Tuesday.

Former President Trump’s company was ordered to pay a $4,000 fine for “willfully disobeying” four subpoenas and three court orders following the one-day contempt trial in October 2021.

“The record is clear that the company failed to produce responsive documents without explanation,” Judge Juan Merchan said in his December 2021 order, first reported by The New York Times on Tuesday.

“Despite clear warnings, the Company missed deadline after deadline, never moving to quash subpoenas and never seeking Court intervention,” he added. “Some subpoenas went largely ignored and another was ignored entirely.”

The Trump Organization was found guilty of criminal tax fraud last week for providing company executives with luxury perks in a yearslong scheme to evade taxes. The company could face up to $1.6 million in fines.

While the former president himself was not on trial, prosecutors from the Manhattan district attorney’s office sought to show Trump’s role in the scheme.

Merchan ruled at the end of the trial to unseal the December 2021 court order, determining it to be “of significant public concern,” according to CNN.

Trump was also held in contempt of court earlier this year for failing to comply with a subpoena in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ civil probe into the Trump Organization. The contempt charge was eventually lifted.

James sued Trump and his three adult children for business fraud in September, accusing the Trump family of manipulating its property values to secure investments and tax and loan benefits.

The Trump Organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the newly unsealed court order.

i think trump just sued the pUlizer prize org? and here is a lawsuit filed in 2018...

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-lawyers-bid-to-delay-trial-over-pyramid-scheme-lawsuit-just-backfired-on-his-2024-campaign/ar-AA15kdT1?ocid=winp2fptaskbar&cvid=c3ec2eb65943485ab6dfb691664f4219

Trump lawyers' bid to delay trial over "pyramid scheme" lawsuit just backfired on his 2024 campaign


Quote:
Afederal lawsuit accusing former President Donald Trump and his family of promoting a pyramid scheme will finally go to trial on Jan. 29, 2024 – at the start of a presidential election year.

The lawsuit, which was anonymously filed in Oct. 2018, alleges that the Trump Corporation promoted a multi-level marketing scheme — or a pyramid scheme — through the company ACN Opportunity, LLC, which operates under the name American Communications Network, Law & Crime reports.

The four plaintiffs claim that Trump should be held liable for lending his and his children Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump's names to a pyramid scheme that broke state and federal laws around "racketeering and conspiracy to racketeer."

The Trump family falsely endorsed and promoted ACN by insisting that the enterprise "offered a reasonable probability of commercial success" and even embedded advertisements on the show, The Celebrity Apprentice. In exchange, they allegedly received millions of dollars in secret payments.

The former president also personally endorsed the company under the guise of a "renowned entrepreneur and multi-billionaire," the suit alleges.

The lawsuit also says that the Trump family's promotion of ACN encouraged the plaintiffs to invest hundreds of dollars into the company, but they never reaped any benefit from the investment.

The case will finally see a jury roughly six years after its initial filing. It encountered repeated delays after Trump's attempts to dismiss the case and to publicly disclose its plaintiffs.

At long last, a bunion corrector that really works!
"Plaintiffs have no desire to interfere with the upcoming campaign, and are mindful that, should the schedule in this case extend into 2024, Defendants likely will, as they have in the past, use the campaign as a basis to seek further delay," plaintiffs' attorney Roberta Kaplan wrote in a four-page letter soon after Trump declared his candidacy. "Setting a trial date now will provide certainty and avoid any such delay later. In addition, aligning summary judgment briefing with class certification briefing makes sense, given that discovery will be complete and there is no reason to wait."

Kaplan added that "Trump is a lead Defendant and his participation at trial and availability for cross examination are obviously critical."

She estimated that his campaign events would likely begin in January or February 2024 so an October 2023 trial date would avoid undue intrusion and facilitate a resolution of the case.

But Trump's legal team argued that an October 2023 trial date would interfere with another trial against Trump and his family. The $250 million fraud lawsuit filed by New York Attorney General Letitia James will head to trial in state court that same month.

"Plaintiffs' initial request for an October 2023 trial date is nothing more than an unfortunate attempt to interfere with another case in which my partner and I are counsel for Donald Trump, Jr. and Eric Trump, both of whom are also Defendants in this case," attorney Clifford Robert wrote in a letter.

U.S. District Judge Lorna Schofield warned that there would be no further delay in her Tuesday order.

"The trial date is firm," Schofield wrote, "as the trial is scheduled far advance to accommodate the parties' stated availability in their letters."

Florida judge whacks Trump lawyers with nearly $1 million in sanctions for 'misuse of the courts'


Quote:
Federal District Court Judge Donald Middlebrooks on Thursday dropped the hammer on former President Donald Trump's attorneys by hitting them with sanctions totaling nearly $1 million for what he described as "misuse of the courts."

In a court order flagged by Politico's Kyle Cheney, Middlebrooks raked Trump's lawyers over the coals for their failed lawsuit against Hillary Clinton for purportedly defaming him by accusing him of being Russian President Vladimir Putin's puppet during the 2016 campaign.

"This case should never have been brought," Middlebrooks began his order. "Its inadequacy as a legal claim was evident from the start. No reasonable lawyer would have filed it. Intended for a political purpose, none of the counts of the amended complaint stated a cognizable legal claim."

Middlebrooks went on toe detail the damage caused by the Trump legal team's actions.


"Thirty-one individuals and entities were needlessly harmed in order to dishonestly advance a political narrative," he said. "A continuing pattern of misuse of the courts by Mr. Trump and his lawyers undermines the rule of law, portrays judges as partisans, and diverts resources from those who have suffered actual legal harm."

As evidence of the frivolity of the lawsuit, Middlebrooks cited an interview Trump attorney Alina Habba gave to Fox News' Sean Hannity where she revealed even Trump thought the case against Clinton wouldn't work and that she persuaded him to back it anyway.

"The former president looked at me and he told me, you know what Alina. You’re not going to win," Habba told Hannity last September. "You can’t win, just get rid of it, don’t do the case. And I said, no, we have to fight."

In all, Middlebrooks levied sanctions against the Trump lawyers totaling $938,000.
