The book, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” which is due to be published by Simon & Schuster on July 28, will include purported psychological observations about the author’s “toxic” family and other personal information, according to the lawsuit.

One of Mary Trump’s lawyers said in an affidavit filed with the court that President Trump himself has already written numerous books about his finances, suggesting Mary Trump may argue that elements of the family’s confidentiality had already been eroded.

“A search of book titles using Google search engine demonstrates that President of the United States Donald J. Trump has written at least nine books that contain discussion of his business and financial dealings,” according to the affidavit.

A judge in in Poughkeepsie, New York, on June 30 issued a temporary restraining order on distribution of any material related to the book pending the outcome of the injunction fight. Just a few a days later, an appellate judge lifted the TRO against Simon & Schuster, once again giving the book a green light -- for now. All of the parties will appear at a July 10 hearing.

A New York judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked the publication of an unflattering tell-all book written by President Trump 's niece that Simon & Schuster is set to publish in July.

Mr. Trump said he was among the Americans “ rightly sickened and revolted” by the death of Mr. Floyd. But, he said, “If a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them

Several legal experts have said Robert Trump’s injunction request is a long shot under the free-speech protections of the First Amendment, especially since the parties can continue litigating over a possible breach of confidentiality after the book is published.

Mary Trump went public with her planned book on June 15, months after Simon & Schuster won an auction for the rights over nearly a dozen other publishers, according to court filings in the case.

She said in Thursday’s filing that she signed over complete control of the book to Simon & Schuster on May 7 and lost “any ability” to prevent or delay it.

The memoir is expected to reveal Mary Trump’s role as a primary source for the New York Times’s investigation into the president’s taxes, and to detail her claim that the family’s mistreatment of her father, Fred Trump Jr., contributed to his early death.

“Thee New York Times’s detailed analysis and investigation revealed for the first time that the valuations on which I had relied in entering into the settlement agreement, and which were used to determine my compensation under the agreement, were fraudulent,” Mary Trump said in Thursday’s filing.

Mary Trump’s Publisher Gets Court to Lift Order Blocking Tell-All Book

The appeals court kept in place a temporary restraining order handed down earlier this week against Mary L. Trump, who wrote a damning memoir about the “toxic” Trump family, but lifted the TRO from her publisher.

Robert Trump , the president’s brother, is seeking to halt the publication of the book, which will delve into the family’s dysfunction. Earlier this week, Judge Hal Greenwald of the New York State Supreme Court, issued a temporary restraining order blocking the release of the book until at least July 10

She also said the underlying legal battle over Fred Trump’s will erupted in 2000 after she and others filed objections in probate court arguing that, among other things, the will “was the product of undue influence and fraud” and that Fred Trump “lacked testamentary capacity or understanding” to execute it.

The president’s niece claims that after she filed objections, the three siblings, including Donald Trump, cut off her health insurance coverage.

Robert Trump’s attorney didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment on the allegations of fraud in Mary Trump’s filing.

The clash comes not long after the Trump administration unsuccessfully tried to halt publication of another unflattering book about Trump. Former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir” became a bestseller, though the government is still suing Bolton for allegedly divulging classified information.
