Court schedules March arguments in Trump emoluments case© The Hill Court schedules March arguments in Trump emoluments case The Richmond-based federal court of appeals released a tentative calendar, marking off days in March for it to hear President Trump's appeal of a federal judge's decision to allow a lawsuit accusing Trump of unconstitutionally profiting off the presidency by accepting payments through his D.C. hotel.

Arguments will be heard in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals during its March 19-21 argument session, according to a Friday filing.

Trump has asked the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to dismiss the lawsuit against him outright or force the lower court to let him appeal the court's interim rulings denying the president's motion to dismiss the case.

The Fourth Circuit in December agreed to put proceedings in the lower court on hold for the time being.

Maryland and the District of Columbia, which brought the suit, allege that Trump is violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution by receiving payments from foreign and domestic governments through the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Attorneys for Trump argue he has a "clear and indisputable right" for the district court to approve his request to appeal its interim decision.

Ginsburg's recovery 'on track' but will miss more U.S. high court arguments.
Ginsburg, 85, will continue to work from home and participate in all the cases she has missed, spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said in a statement. "Her recovery from surgery is on track. Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required," Arberg added. After next week's three cases, the court is due to take a break until the middle of February. The justices will next be on the bench on Feb. 19, when they are due to hear a contentious case arising from President Donald Trump's administration's decision to include a citizenship question in the 2020 census.
