Donald Trump’s federal lawsuit challenging the authority of New York to investigate his sprawling real estate business was dismissed, the latest setback in efforts by the former president to halt the three-year-old probe.

Trump and his company failed to provide evidence that New York Attorney General Letitia James opened the investigation into potentially fraudulent asset valuations as a result of political bias against him, US District Judge Brenda Sannes ruled Friday.
