Legal “experts” are speculating that due to activity seen in the NY Courthouse around the Trump Fraud trial that a settlement might be forthcoming. A reporter for Law360, Frank Runyeon suggested a settlement might be forthcoming as did MSNBC legal analyst Lisa Rubin, who claimed there were “rumblings that the private conversations we’ve observed between each side and the court reflect some sort of settlement negotiation.”
Rumors of potential settlement talks on Tuesday swirled around the Manhattan courthouse where former President Donald Trump’s civil fraud trial is taking place.
Frank Runyeon, a reporter for Law360, on Tuesday cited a “very curious” 25-minute delay in the trial resuming after an afternoon break. Trump attorney Alina Habba walked out of the chambers “alone” before the New York attorney general’s team went in, Runyeon wrote on X/Twitter, linking the incident to Trump recently complaining about a “low-ball settlement offer.”
Trump’s attorneys have already appealed Judge Arthur Engoron’s pre-trial summary judgment holding Trump, his eldest sons and his company liable for persistent fraud and have signaled that they plan to push for a mistrial.
