He doesn't have to physically seat for it, he can do the deposition from the comfort of his offices in NY, via online conference.


Well of course. He's not simply a mortal man bound by law. He's in a league of his own. Special. Entitled. Knuckledragger.

You are lying. Stop it. PLease.


An entire layer of the legal profession economy is built around nuisance suites. It is reality. Settle for $2500 and it goes away.




Aren't they called Ambulance Chasers?

Trump is not the defendant.

He could drop it or not.

The stupid thin skinned chef doesn't have a leg to stand on for breach of contract. Boneless or not.

I hope Trump takes him for everything he's got and check his green card.


Yeah, then drone the guy.

Nah, day in the life.

Get off the field if ya can't play hardball.

Bring it on and don't cry when ya lose.

What was that thing of disproportionality?

You want to try to get out of your contract because of something you think I said while maligning my good name due to your political leanings?

I'll give you a war you won't believe.

Gotcha...


You should know me better than that...

If you google for "Trump Deposition" in the news aggregator of your choice, you'll see the same story from many sources. If you prefer Fox News, here's the story on Fox

And Fox News on lawsuits against Trump

From your own snippet and source They Had a contract. Andres Chose to break the contract and Trump is suing him for breach of contract. What exactly is the problem?


Only that Trump's addiction to litigation and his inability to think long-term has once again come home to roost. Andres has offered to settle out of court. Trump's lawyers got the Trump University suit to go away quietly by settling out of court. I wonder how the other legal issues will turn out.

Gotcha...
The dismissal of MSM sources reporting regular day to day news is becoming silly.
I think you will find many people (including myself) think CNN and most of MSN are the silly ones. They prove it week after week if not daily.



That's pretty much ridiculous - - - since all the same stories show up on all the major news sites.

The only difference is presentation.

I use CNN online because I like the layout.

So no issue but political bias.
Look , I don't like or trust trump nor did I vote for him.

No matter how disappointing it would have been to have a POTUS elected that was under criminal investigation and riddled with more scandels than even Trump himself like the Clintons were, I just couldn't hold my nose and vote for him.

However, this is straight up political chearleading ridiculousness. The guy broke his contract and trump is suing. Its pretty straight forward , simple and very common. You don't know the real details to determine why he is not settling. In addition I don't see a big issue for him down the road by not settling.


There are 99 more valid things to trash trump for but this aint one.

I must say , its been rather disappointing to have seen how bias and one sided you have been in this election with a few others, as I always liked your non political threads and considered you one of the better level headed members here.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was on auto-pilot and Trump was only vaguely aware of it, like his many-page tax returns. It would make sense to settle and move on. The family members running his businesses will be doing this in the future.

So? Hillary isn't the President-elect. How much longer can you guys keep the "What about Hillary?" defense/deflection going? It's time to move on buddy. The election is over.


Move on from what? The lawsuits are still ongoing, both her and Trump. So just because she is no longer running you want it to go away. Not how it works. These lawsuits were going on way before both even ran for office.

My point is that even when she was running the media seldom discussed the FOIA lawsuits yet they liked to talk about Trump university in great detail. Her lawsuits are more severe because it involves the Government having to pay fines. Trump's are personal. But that's fine if you want to be obtuse about it. Almost all democrats are. I'm not. Hey, if anybody does something wrong they should be held accountable including Trump.

I see. Still no shame in derailing a thread about Trump by talking about Hillary. It must be like reflex at this point for you guys. "It's not off topic! herp derp!"

If anyone wants to know about deposition processes for Trump Hillary's recent one would be a good measuring stick on him not having to be there so not derailing anybody. Let's go to the instant replay: she did not have to sit down anywhere, just answer questions in writing.


No videos of Clinton are involved in the dispute. She was permitted to answer written questions in lieu of an in-person deposition.

Yeah, doesn't sound (from the media) that the chef has a valid reason to break a contract.

Emotional reasons don't tend to hold up against law.

However, there could be more to the story we don't know.

Absolutely.

However, right now this is nothing to get worked up about from what I can see, or worth trying to use as some great trump bashing material. It actually does the opposite and bites the credibility of the person making such claims.

Associating this as some negative thing against trump , is as silly as the Right and their HIllary is going to die in the next minute garbage.

BTW glad to see you not jumping on this particular Trump bashing bandwagon.

Kind of Michael Jackson-esque.

A business owner I know, who employs 500+, is sued weekly. The suits are not employee or past-employee suits, but suits brought against the owner, employee(s), and business. When I asked incredulously how the business can defend so many suits, the owner shrugged and stated, "It is a cost of doing business in today's litigious world." I suppose the expense just becomes another line item on the tax return.


Exactly.

Rich people get sued regularly. Everyone is trying to get something from them.
And in the business world, people will sue over every little thing. Many people create situations to have a reason to sue.

Attorneys seek out reasons to sue those with money. It's what they do.
You just have to watch TV and see all of those commercials with law firms seeking out clients regarding some issues in order to drum up business for lawsuits.



I don't think you understand. Trump filed the suit. Are you saying he filed suit over a "little thing?"

Ridiculous!
This guy after being sworn in as POTUS has to go and sit in a courtroom for 7 hours?

Why can he not be represented by his legal team? Why not use twitter as DT can be multi-tasker?
Then we can see what transparency really looks like?

I think there may be bigger fish to fry than some guy wearing a robe insists this case takes precedence
over Presidential affairs?

Otherwise what's the point, why no legal team to represent him?
We are discussing justice aren't we?

I do try to be logical and go to the bare bones of stuff. Have to take an ax and chisel to battle through the hyperbole most of the time.

Maybe not negative per se, but the accumulation of lawsuits and the million dollar out of court settlements should not be swept under the rug - - excused and forgotten.

As I've said: You can not compare Trump's political shenanigans to Hillary - - - because he does not have any.

But, if you compare their personal lives and business dealings - - it is NOT Hillary with the shady dealings. It's Trump.
