(Bloomberg) -- New York Attorney General Letitia James asked a judge to throw out former President Donald Trump’s lawsuit seeking to block her civil probe into his real-estate business.

James, who has been investigating the Manhattan-based Trump Organization for possible fraud tied to asset valuations since 2019, argued in a federal court filing Wednesday in Albany that a judge has repeatedly cleared the investigation and that Trump’s company has been cooperating for more for than a year.  

“At no point, despite having ample opportunity to do so in the NY Proceeding, did the Trump Organization or Mr. Trump ever challenge the underlying legal basis for the investigation,” James said. “Until now -- only after Mr. Trump was served with a subpoena.”
