. . . for underestimating Trump’s net worth in a book! Apparently, a New York Times writer wrote in a book that Trump’s fortune was approximately $150-200 million.
Trump claimed that his net worth was more like $5 billion. Quite a difference, right?
Anyhow, Trump brought a lawsuit for libel, claiming that he lost some deals as a result of the statement in the book.
None of this is relevant to California Defamation Law, but we can’t always be serious. Can we?
