Former President Donald Trump speaks at a rally at the Delaware County Fairgrounds on April 23 in Delaware, Ohio.NEW YORK — A New York judge said Wednesday he will lift Donald Trump's contempt of court order if the former president meets conditions including paying $110,000 in fines he's racked up for being slow to respond to a civil subpoena issued by the state's attorney general.Judge Arthur Engoron said he will lift his finding of contempt if Trump submits additional paperwork by May 20 detailing efforts to search for the subpoenaed records and explaining his and his company's document retention policies.Engoron found Trump in contempt on April 25 and fined him $10,000 per day for not complying with New York Attorney General Letitia James' subpoena, issued as part of a long-running investigation into Trump's business practices.James, a Democrat, has said her three-year investigation has uncovered evidence that the former president's company misstated the value of assets like skyscrapers and golf courses on financial statements for over a decade.Trump has denied the allegations, calling James' investigation "racist" and a "witch hunt." James is Black.Trump's lawyers contend James is using her civil investigation to gain access to information that could then be used against the Republican former president in a parallel criminal investigation being conducted by the Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg, also a Democrat.The legal battle between James and Trump was also playing out Wednesday before a midlevel state appeals court, which was hearing arguments in a related subpoena matter: Trump's appeal of the judge's Feb. 17 ruling requiring him to answer questions under oath in the investigation.Trump wants to avoid having to speak with the investigators.In a statement Wednesday, James praised Engoron's handling of the contempt allegation."For years, Mr. Trump and the Trump Organization have tried to thwart our lawful investigation, but today's decision makes clear that no one can evade accountability," James said in a statement.
