(AP) - A New York state judge has temporarily blocked publication of a tell-all book by President Donald Trump's niece after the president's brother sued to stop it.
Judge Hal B. Greenwald in Poughkeepsie ordered Tuesday that no portion of the book can be distributed before he decides the validity of Robert Trump's claims.
The president's brother says niece Mary Trump had agreed not to publish such a book without permission from the family. Mary Trump's lawyer appealed immediately. Simon & Schuster chief executive said in a court filing late Tuesday that the book has already been shipped.
A lawyer for Robert Trump said his client was very pleased with the ruling.
