Today, in a 1794-page filing, there was a motion to stay judgment and substitute a "forthcoming" $100 million-dollar bond for the $550 million required by the 120% rule.

Point of order: NYAG doesn't work for the US DOJ. You'd think someone who can distinguish a camel from a lion would know that.

Look, I love dunking on Trump. And Trump's lawyers are fairly incompetent. But Trump knows how to use the courts. The judicial system is basically Merrick Garland on steroids. Every delaying tactic has to be treated with deep gravity and seriousness regardless of how stupid and pointless it actually is. Trump will die before he ever has to pay a single penny.

"Trump will die before he ever has to pay a single penny."

If he gets a hamburger from heaven sometime before November, it will be worth every penny.

Don't you so love it when he's being "sarcastic"? What a joker! So funny! Nobody does "sarcasm" like our favorite president, who is (needless to say) a Genius who inherited his intellect from his uncle the MIT professor and kept it pure with a regimen of beef, aspartame, and exercise avoidance.

Sarcasm!

Am I correct in assuming there is no possibility that the federal government could be dragged into these cases?

OK......maybe slightly off topic. Take a look at that picture of Habba. Now, give me two reasons Mango Mussolini hired her? Take your time......it'll come to ya......I'll wait......

When he can't post, that'll be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

IANAL (though I did earn a paralegal degree from Penn State), but the ‘give us time to propose a counter-judgment [?]’ made me laugh, also too. Guess Cheeto’s been through bankruptcy so many times, he thinks he can trot into the courtroom and offer ten cents on the dollar. The only thing that’s saved the nation thus far is that he is so profoundly ignorant and, since he’s legendary for stiffing the hired help, his lawyers aren’t much smarter.

Awww, Atty. Robert forgot that the time to negotiate your verdict is when they offer you a plea deal, not after you make them try you and find you guilty. Another Federalist Society hack?

Ta, Marcie. I know Alina Habba has said she prefers being pretty because she can fake being smart. She's neither.

Remember how she got about the Russians in 2016, and everyone was all, "Oh, that's just Rachel being Rachel?"
