The gag order forbids all parties from attacking the court staff.
Judge Engoron issued a gag order on all parties involved in Trump’s New York fraud case. It only bars them from going after the court staff.
Trump attacked Engoron’s law clerk Allison Greenfield in a Truth Social post, calling her Chuck Schumer’s girlfriend.
Engoron did not name Trump by name, but the order happened after he after he made the post:
“This morning one of the defendants posted on social media account a disparaging untrue and personally identifying post about a member of my staff. Although I have since ordered the post deleted and apparently it was, it was also emailed out to millions of other recipients,” the judge said in court.
“Personal attacks of any member of my court staff are unacceptable, inappropriate and I will not tolerate them,” the judge said.
The judge then said all parties must not speak publicly about any members of the court staff.
“Consider this statement an order forbidding all parties from posting emailing or speaking publicly about any members of my staff,” Engoron said. “Failure to abide by this .. will result in serious sanctions.”

I cannot find the post on Truth Social. I looked up the Instagram account, but she made it private. I do not know if she did that today or it’s always been private.DONATE
