Donald Trump’s deposition in a long-running class-action fraud suit, previously set for Friday at Mar-a-Lago, was ordered rescheduled because of Hurricane Ian. But that ruling came only after a fierce war of words between lawyers for plaintiffs and the former president.

Roberta Kaplan, the investors’ lawyer, wrote to a New York federal judge Wednesday seeking a delay, saying she could not get Trump’s attorneys to agree to reschedule the deposition or move it from the former president’s Florida residence to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, due to the storm.
