Trump is “seeking notice and a window for judicial review that allows him to challenge the legality” of the request, Consovoy said in a court filing late Tuesday evening.
The request comes after Nichols earlier this week ruled his Washington, D.C., court doesn’t have jurisdiction over the New York officials who would administer the law. Nichols suggested Trump refile the case in New York.
Consovoy argues that shouldn’t matter, saying Nichols can still order New York or Neal to give him a head’s up.
Neal has demonstrated little interest in the New York law, though Consovoy is concerned the Massachusetts Democrat could change his mind and get Trump’s filings without notice.
