Trump’s attorney Ticktin in ‘Trump v. Clinton’ affirms the lawsuit is ‘far from frivolous’

(Last Updated On: 2 February 2023)

Trump’s attorney Ticktin has admitted to the allegations as “true”.

In response to a Florida federal judge hitting former President Donald Trump and his attorney with nearly $1 million in sanctions, Peter Ticktin of The Ticktin Law Group PA tells LAW360 that the legal team believes wholeheartedly that the allegations in the lawsuit are 100 percent true.

U.S. District Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks called the racketeering lawsuit filed by former president Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton a “pattern of misuse of the courts.”

The Florida judge said the lawsuit “should never have been filed” and was brought simply to “harass and punish, for fund raising and to advance a political agenda.”

But Peter Ticktin, one of the lawyers who represents Trump, told Law360 that the entire Trump legal team believes in the lawsuit and the allegations it contains.

Ticktin said there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians, so that narrative must have come from a conspiracy by the actors.

“It did not happen on its own, like spontaneous combustion,” Ticktin is quoted saying in the recent LAW360 article written by Carolina Bolado.

Ticktin is quoted in the publication going on to say: “Some people did the whole hoax, even to the extent of obtaining FISA warrants.  We filed a lawsuit against those people, and the judge just could not believe what he read.

“Worse, he thought that we filed a frivolous complaint for political purposes. We did not.  We are not politicians.  We are trial lawyers who filed a complaint and amended a complaint to redress a great wrong which was done to President Trump and the United States. 

“I am confident that this will be corrected on appeal” as “this lawsuit is far from frivolous,” Ticktin added. 

Trump is represented by Ticktin and Jamie Alan Sasson of The Ticktin Law Group PA, Alina Habba and Michael T. Madaio of Habba Madaio & Associates LLP and Jared Roberts of Binal Law Group.

The case is Donald J. Trump v. Hillary R. Clinton et al., case number 2:22-cv-14102, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
