The decision means that the president may have this for a sworn deposition, which is currently scheduled for June.
The first division of the New York State Appellate Division dismissed Trump's argument that the case should be suspended until his absence, as he, as a sitting president, was immune from legal action before a state court.
"We reject defendant President Trump's claim that the supremacy clause of the United States Constitution prevents a New York state court ̵
