It was announced by On July 6 by Simon & Schuster that they moved the publication date to July 14 due to “high demand and extraordinary interest.” This resulted in the book surpassing The Room Where It Happened as the No. 1 bestseller on Amazon. According to various reports in the media, Donald Trump discussed the legal possibility of taking action against Mary. Donald mentioned that Mary had previously signed a “very powerful” non-disclosure agreement that “covers everything” and hence she wasn’t allowed to write the book.
A suit was filed by Robert Trump on June 23, in an attempt to secure a preliminary injunction and a temporary restraining order to block publication. The only legal alibi they had was Mary’s non-disclosure agreement.
On June 25, in a hearing, judge Peter J. Kelly of the Queens County Surrogate Court in New York City dismissed the case over insufficient jurisdiction.
