- An appeals court in New York lifted the temporary restraining order on Wednesday
- The decision allows publisher Simon & Schuster to continue publishing
- The restraining order remains in effect for the president’s niece, Mary Trump
- Comes after a judge on Tuesday ordered them to refrain from “publishing, printing, or distributing” copies of the book prior to a July 10 hearing

A temporary restraining order blocking the publication of a new tell-all book by President Trump’s niece has been lifted by a federal appeals court a day after the Trump family was given the preliminary injunction.
A New York court overturned the decision on Wednesday, allowing publisher Simon & Schuster to continue to print and distribute Mary Trump’s ‘Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,’ due to be released July 28 .
“While Ms Trump undoubtedly has the same expressive rights to the First Amendment that belong to all Americans, she also has the right to contract, including the right to contract her rights to the First Amendment,” the court said.
Mary’s book – Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the Most Dangerous Man – will be out on July 28
The Trump family won a preliminary injunction against their niece Mary Trump and her publishers Tuesday to prevent them from publishing her all-encompassing book
“Unlike Mrs. Trump, Simon & Schuster has not agreed to waive his rights to the First Amendment.”
The restraining order remains in place for Mary, but her lawyer Ted Boustrous said he plans to file a briefing on Thursday to be lifted.
It comes just one day after a judge ruled that they should refrain from “publishing, printing, or distributing” copies of the book prior to a July 10 hearing.
The decision was made by Judge Hal B. Greenwald at Dutchess County Court just north of New York – a major setback for Mary, daughter of the President’s brother, Fred Jr., who died of alcoholism in 1981.
The 55-year-old’s book promises to describe a “ nightmare of trauma, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse that has made Donald Trump the man he is today. ”
The book is also expected to reveal that Mary was the source of a 2018 New York Times investigation into the president, which demolished his image as a self-made man. In fact, he received at least $ 413 million from his father and was a millionaire by the time he was eight, she said.
Lawyers for the president’s younger brother, the 71-year-old president, attempted to file documents at Surrogate’s Court in Queens County last Tuesday against Mary and her publisher Simon & Schuster. The court had ruled that the application had failed and that they had to complete it.
