19-715 ) TRUMP, DONALD J., ET AL. V. MAZARS USA, LLP, ET AL.
19-760 ) TRUMP, DONALD J., ET AL. V. DEUTSCHE BANK AG, ET AL. (19A640)
The petition for a writ of certiorari in No. 19-715 is granted. The application (19A640) for stay presented to Justice Ginsburg and by her referred to the Court is granted, and it is ordered that the mandate of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, case No. 19-1540, is hereby stayed pending further order of the Court. In addition, the application is treated as a petition for a writ of certiorari, and the petition is granted. The cases are consolidated, and a total of one hour is allotted for oral argument. The cases will be set for argument in the March 2020 argument session.
The Supreme Court has taken the Trump cases and will hear them in the March sitting. I suspect they will try to expedite a decision in this case, rather than waiting until the end of June to release it.
More on the other two cases shortly.
