On Wednesday, a New York appellate judge lifted the temporary restraining order against Simon & Schuster and ruled that the publisher can move forward with printing and shipping Mary Trump's memoir "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man". Simon & Schuster previously said that they had already printed and distributed 75,000 copies and that they support Mary Trump's "right to tell her story."

The New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division has not lifted the restraining order against Mary Trump until her hearing on July 10.

On Tuesday, Judge Hal B. Greenwald of the New York State Supreme Court temporarily blocked the publication of Mary L. Trump's memoir "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man". Donald Trump's younger brother Robert Trump had filed a temporary restraining order on June 24 to block the book that's described as a "revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him," stating that Mary Trump was breaking a confidentiality agreement.

Mary Trump is represented by Ted Boutrous, a First Amendment attorney, who said the order "flatly violates the First Amendment," and that they would appeal immediately. "This book, which addresses matters of great public concern and importance about a sitting president in an election year, should not be suppressed even for one day," so Boutrous.
