New York Attorney General Letitia James, left. Former president Donald Trump, right.Getty Images NY's attorney general on Tuesday asked a Manhattan judge to sanction Trump — again. Trump, his family, and Trump Org made 'meritless' responses to NY's 2022 fraud lawsuit, the AG says. Trump claimed Trump Org can't be named in the AG's suit because it does not exist as a legal entity. New York Attorney General Letitia James is demanding cash sanctions — again — from Donald Trump.James is arguing this time around that Trump, his three eldest children, his top executives, and his company should be punished for making "improper," "demonstrably false" and "meritless" claims in their recent answers to last year's massive, $250 million fraud lawsuit.Those claims include Trump's argument — in blocks of text that repeat dozens of times throughout 5,000 pages of filings from Thursday — that the Trump Organization can't be named in the lawsuit because it's just a branding shorthand that doesn't exist as a legal entity.Lawyers for James filed a letter on Tuesday asking the Manhattan judge presiding over the looming lawsuit to consider sanctioning the Trump defendants and their lawyers "for their continued invocation of meritless legal claims."The Trump defendants' filings from Thursday are "deficient in a host of ways," wrote Kevin Wallace, senior enforcement counsel for the attorney general's office, in asking for sanctions.Trump and the other defendants denied even unimportant things that they'd admitted elsewhere, according to Wallace, and are playing dumb about things "plainly in their knowledge." Wallace gave multiple examples.
