In his ruling, Judge Donald Middlebrook stated that the lawsuit did not seek compensation for any legal damages and that the court was “not the appropriate forum” for the former president’s complaints. The judge was referring to the fact that the lawsuit did not seek compensation for any legal damages.
According to the judgement, “He aims to boast of a 200-page political manifesto in which he sets out grievances against political opponents.” “He seeks to boast of a 200-page political manifesto”
According to Reuters, the statement also stated that the lawsuit filed by Trump “lacks content and legal grounding, which it strives to replace with length, exaggeration, and calculating.”
Middlebrook said that Trump did not demonstrate that he had been hurt by any falsehoods and that he had waited too long to submit a lawsuit, which is considered to be in violation of the legal statute of limitations.

He claimed that he had incurred more than 24 million dollars in defense expenditures, legal fees, and other expenses linked to the case, and he demanded both compensatory and punitive damages.
Alina Haba, who represents Donald Trump, stated that the former president would appeal the ruling as soon as possible.
