Former President Donald Trump was subpoenaed to turn over documents to the state of New York that were requested by New York Attorney General Letitia James. However, Judge Arthur F. Engoron claims Trump failed to cooperate with the court’s orders and held the former president in contempt on Monday.

“Mr. Trump: I know you take your business seriously, and I take mine seriously,” Engoron said, according to the New York Times.

Each day that Trump fails to comply with the order, he will be fined $10,000 per day. Trump’s lawyer, Alina Habba, expressed that she intends to appeal the judge’s ruling for her client.
