NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — In the fight to get President Donald Trump to release his tax returns, a federal judge is putting the breaks on the latest attempt by New York state.

The state passed a law recently, allowing the leaders of congress’s tax committees to request tax information from the state tax returns of public officials.

A federal judge has issued an order temporarily preventing the state from being able to carry out the new law.

New York state is expected to challenge the order by saying that Washington D.C. has no jurisdiction in this case.
