Professor Gregory Germain was interviewed live on LiveNow from Fox at the outset of the Trump business fraud trial. He discussed the background of the case, the pros and cons of Trump taking the witness stand, New York state cameras in the courtroom laws, and the possible penalties.
Germain said that the trial is about the six other criminal-based causes of action that have not been determined yet and if the court is going to order the disgorgement of gains. He says, “I don’t know how the court is going to calculate disgorgement of gains without showing some form of reliance and some form of causation. How do you determine how much from these loans and insurance policies did he save and how much was he unjustly enriched by using these financial representations that nobody relied on.”
