Judge delivers blow to TrumpThe ruling Monday from U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols, a Trump appointee, said Trump could not challenge New York's  Attorney General Letitia James and Tax Commissioner Michael Schmidt in federal court in Washington D.C., where Nichols is based and the suit was filed.

The ruling, however, allows Trump the option of refiling the lawsuit in New York or after Congress makes a formal request for his tax returns, meaning the legal battle is likely to continue.

And it also allowed Trump to continue to challenge the House Ways and Means Committee, one of the three congressional committees allowed by the state law to request his taxes, in hopes of blocking it from requesting his taxes from the state.
