The Trump Organization filed a lawsuit against New York City Monday, alleging that the termination of its Bronx golf course contract following the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot was politically motivated.

Why it matters: The estimated cost of the decision by NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio to end all contracts between the city and former President Trump's family business is $17 million a year in revenue.

  • The Trump Organization alleges in the wrongful termination suit that the cancelation would cost the company $30 million.

What they're saying: "Mayor de Blasio had a pre-existing, politically-based predisposition to terminate Trump-related contracts, and the city used the events of January 6, 2021 as a pretext to do so," states the lawsuit, which was filed in the New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan.

The other side: Per the New York Times, Bill Neidhardt, a spokesperson for the mayor, said: "Donald Trump directly incited a deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. You do that, and you lose the privilege of doing business with the City of New York."

Trump loses NDA case against Omarosa Manigault Newman

Former President Trump has lost an effort to enforce a nondisclosure agreement against former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman over her tell-all book about serving in his administration.

State of play: The arbitrator, Andrew Brown, wrote in a decision that the definition of what comment was protected by the NDA was "vague and unenforceable" and therefore "invalid under New York contract law."

Nashville Mayor John Cooper has quietly been forced to overhaul his staff in the last year following a series of departures, including three of his top advisers. Cooper spokesperson Andrea Fanta admitted staff departures have "created some stumbles" in appointing seats on city boards and commissions.

  • Seven top officials have left Cooper's staff, including legal director Bob Cooper, finance director Kevin Crumbo and communications director Katie Lentile.

Blizzard likely to hit New England this weekend as "bomb cyclone" forms

A powerful blizzard is likely to strike parts of New England and the Mid-Atlantic beginning Friday and lasting into the weekend, with snow totals that are likely to be measured in feet.

The big picture: The joining of weather systems embedded in both the polar, or northern branch, of the jet stream and the southern branch is projected to create a bomb cyclone. Such storms undergo a process known as bombogenesis, with their minimum central air pressure readings plunging at least 24 millibars in 24 hours.
