A commercial real estate company detained with contempt for the court for failing to hand over valuations of several Trump Organization properties to the New York Attorney General has handed over nearly 36,000 documents, court files show.

New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron last month found Cushman & Wakefield contemptuous for failing to submit documents in Attorney General Letitia James’s civil investigation into the Trump Organization’s business practices and ordered the company to fine. $10,000 a day to be paid until it met.

In a letter to the judge late Friday, James’s office said it has now received “Cushman’s production, representing approximately 35,867 documents since the entry into force of this court’s contempt warrant.” The letter stated that the attorney general’s office, along with Cushman, asked the judge to “revoke the contempt warrant and clear any contempt, with no fines due.”

Cushman and James spokespersons did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

James’ office is considering a civil suit against former President Donald Trump and his company for their business practices, and has said in court files that it has found “substantial evidence that numerous misrepresentations in the financial statements provided to banks statements from Mr. Trump, insurers and the IRS.”
