As we reported last month, Mary Trump, the niece of President Donald Trump, has been attempting to publish a tell-all book called Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, which claims it will expose some previously well kept secrets regarding the Trump family. According to the book’s description, it serves as a portrait of the real Donald Trump and the ‘toxic family that made him’. Following two injunctions against the book, a New York judge has declared the title may now go ahead and be printed.
Yesterday, on 1st July, Judge Alan Scheinkman ruled that the controversial title could go ahead with printing and publishing, overturning a temporary restraint against the memoir made by Judge Hal B Greenwald. Publisher Simon & Schuster was prohibited from “publishing, printing or distributing” the book, until a full hearing scheduled on 10th July, following Robert Trump’s (President Trump’s brother) second injunction.. Despite the temporary ban, S&S CEO Jonathan Karp stated approximately 75,000 copies of the memoir were ready for publication, with thousands having already been shipped.
US director of corporate communications for S&S, Adam Rothberg, said: “We are gratified with the Appellate Court’s decision to overturn the Temporary Restraining Order issued by the lower court against Simon & Schuster. We support Mary L Trump’s right to tell her story in Too Much and Never Enough, a work of great interest and importance to the national discourse that fully deserves to be published for the benefit of the American public. As all know, there are well-established precedents against prior restraint and pre-publication injunctions, and we remain confident that the preliminary injunction will be denied.”
The book is now set to be released on 28th July.
