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.
