He added, “President Trump filed a timely motion to stay the ridiculous judgment, and many courts, including the Second Circuit, recognize the importance of temporary administrative stays while such motions are considered. We look forward to continuing to litigate the case and to complete vindication of the truth.”

In the U.K. case, Trump sued Orbis over allegations made in the Steele dossier, arguing that he “suffered personal and reputational damage” from its contents. 

The case also emphasized that the company had disobeyed the UK’s data protection laws.
