Legal Experts Call Lawyer’s “Screw-up” “Very Ominous” for Trump

Adam Klasfeld of The Messenger quotes New York State Supreme Court Justice Arthur Ergoron as saying, “Nobody asked for” a jury trial in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ fraud action against former President Donald Trump.

Hugo Lowell of The Guardian reported that “Trump is not getting a jury trial in his $250 million civil fraud suit brought against him by New York AG James,” because “his legal team did not request one on the paperwork.”

Experts in the field of law were taken aback by the news, calling it a serious slip-up on the part of the former president’s legal team. MSNBC legal analyst Katie Phang said, “So Alina Habba didn’t demand a jury trial?” I find me curious as to how Trump feels about this legal misstep. Ex-USAO Harry Litman described the ruling as “mind-blowing.”

“For Trump to have his fate in the hands of this judge, whom he has vilified, is malpractice by his lawyers and very ominous for him,” Litman wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

“It’s incredibly easy to ask for a jury trial. You just check a box on a form. Hard to believe that Trump understood that his lawyers hadn’t done it when he’s been savaging the judge who is now the factfinder in his huge fraud trial,” he added.

“I honestly can’t believe that any lawyer hired on such an important case could make this mistake,” wrote defense attorney Andrew Fleischman.

“But I also can’t think of any strategic reason you’d want a bench trial in front of a judge who just sanctioned your lawyers for making frivolous arguments.”
