Ivanka Trump appeals ruling requiring her to testify in father's fraud trial
The big picture: The move comes after Ivanka Trump's testimony was postponed this week to Nov. 8 to allow enough time for her to be questioned and to give her a chance to appeal the judge's ordered testimony.
Driving the news: Her attorney asked an appellate court to determine whether Judge Arthur Engoron has the jurisdiction to order her to testify, per ABC News.
- Additionally, the appeal questions whether subpoenas in the trial were properly issued by New York Attorney General Letitia James.
- Ivanka Trump's attorney did not immediately respond to Axios' request for comment.
Catch up quick: Engoron last week denied a request to void the subpoena for Ivanka Trump to testify.
- She was dismissed in June from the $250 million lawsuit brought by the attorney general against her father, her brothers Don. Jr. and Eric Trump and the Trump Organization.
- Still, James sought Ivanka Trump's testimony, arguing she has personal knowledge of facts relevant to the case.
