President’s Challenge to Manhattan DA's Tax Subpoena Rejected By Appeals Court

President’s Challenge to Manhattan DA's Tax Subpoena Rejected By Appeals Court

October 12, 2020

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has unanimously affirmed a lower court’s ruling that a grand jury subpoena for tax records and other financial documents related to the President and associated entities was not overbroad or issued in bad faith. The ruling follows a July decision in which the U.S. Supreme Court reaffirmed the centuries-old principle that “no citizen, not even the President, is categori­cally above the common duty to produce evidence when called upon in a criminal proceeding.”

Selendy & Gay served as co-counsel to Cyrus Vance, the Manhattan District Attorney, with a team including Caitlin Halligan, Ryan W. Allison, David Coon and Vivek Tata.
