Trump's Lawyers Say Dropping SoHo Name Excludes Him From Lawsuit

U.S. lawyers representing President Donald Trump said the Trump Organization’s exit from a luxury hotel in lower Manhattan undermines a lawsuit in which rival hotels and restaurants are challenging his alleged illegal receipt of payments from foreign governments while in office.
Reuters reports that The Department of Justice said the Trump Organization’s decision on Wednesday to give up management of the Trump SoHo by year end and drop the Trump name bolsters the argument for dismissing the lawsuit, whose plaintiffs also include the nonprofit watchdog Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
“This development undermines the hospitality plaintiffs’ reliance on alleged competition with the Trump SoHo to demonstrate standing,” or legal authority to sue, the Justice Department said in a letter to U.S. District Judge George Daniels in Manhattan.
