For the second time in less than a week, the New York judge overseeing Donald Trump’s civil fraud case has fined the former president for violating the court’s gag order prohibiting Trump from speaking publicly about his courtroom staff.

New York State Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron issued a $10,000 sanction against Trump on Wednesday after hearing testimony from him about comments the ex-president made outside of court. Trump was under a gag order barring him from speaking publicly about courtroom workers after making disparaging remarks about the judge’s law clerk, but the judge found that his comments to the press on Wednesday violated that order.
