Donald Trump withdraws lawsuit against New York attorney general

Less than a day after receiving a warning from a federal judge, former President Donald Trump has withdrawn his lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James.

The withdrawal came in a brief document filed Friday morning with U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks, who late Thursday warned Trump's legal team that the lawsuit

appeared to verge on frivolous.MORE: Judge fines Trump and his attorney nearly $1 million for filing 'revenge' lawsuit against Hillary Clinton "Plaintiff, PRESIDENT DONALD

J. TRUMP, by and through his undersigned counsel and pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1)(A)(i), hereby voluntarily dismisses his claims in this action against Defendant, LETITIA

JAMES, without prejudice," the letter said. Trump's lawsuit against the AG had sought to shield Trump's revocable trust from James, who has an ongoing $250 million civil

suit that alleges fraudulent conduct at the Trump Organization. James has accused Trump and his family members of "grossly" inflating the former president's net worth by billions

of dollars and of cheating lenders and others with false and misleading financial statements. Trump's suit against James accused her "intimidation and harassment" and of

making repeated "attempts to steal, destroy or control all things Trump." On Thursday, Middlebrooks ordered Trump and his attorney Alina Habba to pay fines of nearly $1

million after determining that Trump's 2022 lawsuit against Hillary Clinton was frivolous litigation meant only to "seek revenge."
