A commercial real estate firm held in contempt of court for failing to hand over records on its appraisals of several Trump Organization properties to New York's attorney general has turned over nearly 36,000 documents, court filings show.
New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron had found Cushman & Wakefield in contempt last month for not producing documents in state Attorney General Letitia James' civil probe into the Trump Organization's business practices and ordered the firm to pay a $10,000-a-day fine until it complied.
In a letter to the judge late Friday, James' office said it has now "received Cushman's production, which amounts to about 35,867 documents since entry of this court's contempt order." The letter said the attorney general's office was joining with Cushman in asking the judge to "dissolve the contempt order and hold any contempt purged, without any fines due or owing."

Cushman's and James' spokespeople did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
James' office is considering whether to file a civil suit against former President Donald Trump and his company over their business practices, and has said in court filings that it has "uncovered substantial evidence establishing numerous misrepresentations in Mr. Trump's financial statements provided to banks, insurers, and the Internal Revenue Service."
