An opinion article by Distinguished Visiting Lecturer David Cay Johnston, “Donald’s Time in the Dock”, ran in the February 20, 2022 New York Daily News. The article focuses on recent legal developments surrounding former President Trump’s businesses and taxes.
In the article, Johnston says about the consequences of a possible New York State civil lawsuit, “People have a right to life, but corporations don’t. They exist by the grace of government and may be extinguished for misconduct, as I teach my Syracuse University law students. That penalty is exceedingly rare, but it’s happened to Trump twice already.”
