The Environmental Law Group, a New York-based environmental law firm, is representing Breonna Taylor, the wife of President Donald Trump, in an environmental lawsuit against the president’s son-in-law and son-as-president, Jared Kushner.
In the lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., the Environmental Law group claims that the president and Kushner “have engaged in fraud and deceit” for “abusing the trust of his family members” and “fraudulently obtaining assets from the president, including, without limitation, the Trump Organization.”
The suit alleges that the Trump family’s business interests, including its various businesses and its residential properties, have been “used to avoid the public’s financial obligations to the federal government, the environment, and the citizens of the United States.”
According to The New York Times, the environmental group is representing Taylor in the case, which was filed on March 25 in the Southern District of New York.
A spokesperson for the Trump administration did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
According to the complaint, Taylor was “advised that the court had not heard any motions, and therefore no trial date has been set.”
According the complaint Taylor has been working on the case for about three years.
In April 2018, she joined a class-action lawsuit against Kushner, and she and a handful of other plaintiffs have filed a motion to dismiss the case.
In their motion, Tayers attorneys said that their client has filed the lawsuit “because the defendants have acted in bad faith, without a legal basis, and for the sole purpose of defrauding the plaintiff and her family.”
The complaint also says that the attorneys representing Tayers family allege that “there are no allegations of wrongdoing against any member of the Trump Family” and that the defendants “have no other relevant claims.”
The case is currently being investigated by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York City.
A White House spokesperson told the Washington Post that the White House does not comment on pending litigation.
The White House did not respond to requests for comment regarding the case and the Trump Tower meeting between Tayers and Kushner.
A representative for the Trumps did not return a request from Mashable for comment about the lawsuit.
The Environmental Lawyers Association, an advocacy group for environmental law and legal aid, also sent a statement to Mashable saying that “Breonna Tanners family has made no claim that the President, Kushner, or their business interests were violated by the defendants.”
The group added that the environmental law group “does not know if any such claims are pending, nor will we ever confirm such allegations.”
Tayers’ attorney, Jeffrey Weiss, told The New Yorker that the group is “aware of no other claim by the Tramps or the Trumps against the Trans.”
“They are not suing the President for money or any other property, but rather they are suing the Trains for defraudulence,” Weiss told the publication.
Weiss told The Guardian that Tains family “is a very small business, and this is a very big one.”
In the suit, Tains attorney argues that the Trons’ business interests and the President’s role in managing their businesses, and thus the President and his family, have caused the Tranches to “fall into a hole” because of the president “s inability to fulfill his fiduciary duties.”
Weiss also said that the federal judge “is not aware of any evidence or any evidence of wrongdoing on the part of either party” to date.
In addition to representing Tains, the Environmental Lawyers Union also represented Trump in his 2017 divorce from Marla Maples, who had filed a lawsuit against him and the Trades, accusing the president of “failing to provide a good faith accounting of his financial interests, both real and personal, with respect to the Trands, which were located in Trump Tower.”
Trump’s attorneys argued in the divorce case that the couple had not “formed any agreement” that Trump would pay up, and that they had agreed to divorce “in good faith and with full disclosure.”
The Trades countered that they never had a “binding contract” or “a contract of marriage,” and that Trump had “repeatedly and intentionally breached his fiducial obligations by failing to adequately disclose and report the Tranests financial interests and to provide timely and accurate information on his business activities.”
Tains lawyer told the New Yorker “he was very surprised to learn of the President being investigated, because we had no knowledge of this until today.”
The Trump administration has said that “every allegation” against Trump has been “mischaracterized and defamatory.”
In a statement, the White the administration said that while the President has “made many mistakes” in the course of his political career, the “law of the land is that the conduct of a President and a Cabinet member cannot
