Lawsuit victory for Trump

A federal US judge in New York has thrown out a lawsuit claiming that President Donald Trump violated the US Constitution by accepting foreign payments through his hotels and other businesses, handing him a major victory on an issue that has dogged him.

Though other lawsuits remain pending that make similar claims, the ruling by US District Judge George Daniels is the first to weigh the merits of the US Constitution's anti-corruption provisions as they apply to Trump, a wealthy businessman who as president regularly visits his own hotels, resorts and golf clubs.

In his 29-page opinion granting the government's request to toss the suit, Daniels said the plaintiffs were not legally entitled to sue.
