Alawyer representing Eric Trump in the New York Attorney General’s civil suit alleging the Trump Organization committed fraud has quit, according to a court filing he submitted last week.

Marc Mukasey of Mukasey Frenchman LLP informed a New York state Supreme Court judge in Manhattan that he was withdrawing from the case on Sept. 14. The move comes one day after a judge’s order to seal a stipulation between the parties was filed. Before that agreement, the docket shows no activity in this case since January. It’s not clear if there’s any connection between the agreement and Mukasey’s departure.

Mukasey declined to comment on the record for this story. He has represented Eric Trump in the case since it was filed in August 2020. Eric and representatives from the Trump Organization have not replied to inquiries.

A former law partner of Rudy Giuliani, Mukasey’s other clients have included Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, oil-field service company Halliburton and basketball coach Rick Pitino.

New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) is investigating the Trump Organization over allegations that it falsified the value of its assets to secure loans and tax breaks.

Eric will continue to be represented by criminal defense attorney Alan Futerfas.

On Sept. 14, Marc Mukasey informed the New York state Supreme Court that he was withdrawing as Eric Trump’s attorney.
