Former US President Donald Trump was ordered Friday to pay US$392,638 ( approximately CA$526,000) to the New York Times and to journalists from the daily for legal costs after having his lawsuits dismissed.

Donald Trump filed a complaint in September 2021 against the New York Times, accusing three journalists from the daily of a devious plot to obtain his tax documents. They published an investigation in 2018 that won the prestigious Pulitzer Prize.

In May 2023, a judge in the New York State Supreme Court's Commercial Division dismissed the real estate mogul's case and ordered him to pay costs. In a new decision rendered Friday, this judge considered the amount of attorney fees estimated by the New York Times reasonable and ordered Donald Trump to reimburse them in full.

The investigation told how the former promoter, who claims to have made it on his own, had built his fortune. She claimed that Donald Trump had in fact received from his father, over several years, the equivalent today of 413 million US dollars (approximately $554 million CAD) which would have partly been transferred through #x27;a shell company, allowing them to escape tax.
