New York Judge Engoron rescinds offer for Trump to deliver closing argument in NYAG civil trial

The judge presiding over the civil trial stemming from New York Attorney General Letitia James’ lawsuit against former President Trump and his business empire has rescinded the court’s offer for the 2024 GOP frontrunner to deliver a closing argument in the case.

Judge Arthur Engoron on Wednesday rescinded permission for Trump to make a closing argument during proceedings on Thursday.

Engoron had initially approved the request for Trump to make his own closing statement, but said the former president would be required to limit his remarks to “commentary on the relevant, material facts that are in evidence, and application of the relevant law to those facts.”
