As Delgado Sues Trump Over West Wing Job Withdrawal Motion by Campaign Lawyer May 7

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 2 – Arlene "A.J." Delgado sued the Trump campaign after she did not receive the West Wing job she said she was promised (but Jason Miller got).  

      On August 16, 2022 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker held an in-person proceeding. Inner City Press went and covered it. 

Jump cut to January 30, 2024: Delgado is now pro se and moving to depose Reince Priebus and Eric Trump. Inner City Press live tweeted, thread

On February 5, 2024, Magistrate Judge Parker denied Delgado's motion that she recuse herself for having practiced employment defense law prior to becoming a Magistrate Judge, and other reasons. Order on Patreon here.

On February 28, after Delgado's submission of a 15 page letter here, there was a discovery conference. Inner City Press live tweeted it here (and, for those who prefer, on Threads here)

On March 6, Arlene Delgado docketed her subpoena to Jared Kushner, including the records he should bring - subpoena on Patreon here

On March 21, Delgado filed a discovery letter with Judge Parker, including that "During the deposition of third-party witness Eric Trump, on March 13, 2024, Mr. Trump (who was represented by Alina Habba, Esq.) stated that, in preparation for this deposition, he had met with his attorney (Ms. Habba) and also with Defendants counsel, the day prior to his deposition. Ms. Habba then claimed that “common interest privilege” applies to shield the communications between her client, Eric Trump, and Defendants’ counsel. Plaintiff requests" - letter on Patreon here.

On March 26 there was another discovery conference, including this

Docketed on March 28 was a letter from Delgado to Judge Parker including on an affidavit she obtained from Stephanie Grisham. She says she is willing to give it to the defense if they commit not to disseminate or discuss it with third parties.

On April 3, Magistrate Judge Parker issued a six page order including "The deadline for discovery is extended to May 7, 2024 for the sole purpose of completing the depositions of Castellano, Glassner, Kushner, McGahn, Conway, and Bannon." Order on Patreon here.

On April 25, another order by Judge Parker: "DISCOVERY ORDER: Plaintiff's motion to compel is GRANTED in part and DENIED in part. Plaintiffs motion is GRANTED as to information concerning gender-related complaints against the Campaign during the 2016 and 2020 campaign cycles, including complaints of sexual harassment, gender, or pregnancy discrimination. Plaintiff's motion to compel information related to the amount in legal fees the Campaign has spent on the present litigation or the amount of cash/assets the Campaign currently possesses is DENIED. Plaintiff's request to have direct access to Defendants' storage vendor and her request that Defendants conduct further searches for organizational charts is DENIED. Plaintiff's request for additional time to depose Mr. Parscale is GRANTED. As discussed at the Conference, Plaintiff is permitted to depose Mr. Parscale for an additional three hours and is directed to schedule such deposition by May 7, 2024. By April 26, 2024, Plaintiff shall serve a copy of this Order on Fox."

On April 26, Jared E. Blumetti of LaRocca, Hornik, Greenberg, Kittredge,Carlin & McPartland LLP moved to withdraw, citing "an irreparable breakdown in the attorney-client relationship between the Firm and Campaign." Declaration on Patreon here.

On April 30, Delgado opposed:  full filing on Patreon here.

On May 2, Judge Parker asked for an ex parte (sealed) motion by May 7, "Defense counsel shall provide a copy of the declaration to a representative of Donald J. Trump For President, Inc. (the “Campaign”) and Messrs. Priebus and Spicer. Because the Campaign is an entity, it may not represent itself. See e.g., Cent. Harlem Cmty. (Dist. 10) v. City of New York, 2024 WL 1603463, at *1 (S.D.N.Y. Mar. 8, 2024). Thus, if the motion to withdraw is granted, the Campaign will be at risk of default if it does not promptly obtain substitute counsel." Order on Patreon here
