Trump pays $110K fine, must submit paperwork to end contempt

By MICHAEL R. SISAK Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Former President Donald Trump has paid the $110,000 in fines he racked up after being held in contempt of court for being slow to respond to a civil subpoena issued by New York's attorney general.

The office of Attorney General Letitia James says Trump paid the fine Thursday but must still submit additional paperwork in order to have the contempt order lifted.

A Manhattan judge declared Trump in contempt of court April 25 and fined him $10,000 per day for not complying with a subpoena in James' long-running investigation into his business practices.

Trump's lawyer did not immediately comment.
