D.C. Superior Court Judge Jennifer A. Di Toro ruled Wednesday that before Donald Trump is inaugurated as president, he must sit for a deposition in New York City during the first week of January in his ongoing contractual dispute with chef Jose Andres, reports CNN.
Trump is suing Andres for a breach of contract after the chef pulled out of opening a restaurant in Trump's new luxury hotel in D.C.
Trump's attorneys agreed to a deposition in New York, but have tried to limit the lines of inquiry, saying, "Mr. Trump is not just any apex deponent; he is the President-elect ... It is not an overstatement that he is extremely busy handling matters of very significant public importance."
But Di Toro wouldn't have it. The judge said that because Trump's own "statements are at the heart" of the matter, she would not limit Trump's examination.
Andres tweeted out earlier this week asking Trump to end his lawsuit.
