I hate to spoil everyone's fun, but people are misinterpreting the NY Trump ruling... [View all]

First and foremost, the Trump Org and its affiliates and their assets are not being seized by NYS, so "is Trump still a Billionaire" questions are meaningless at this point. The corporate entities will be dissolved, but their assets and liabilities will be transferred to the corporate owners (Trump and family) who will transfer them to some new out of State entity.

Second, however much Trump is determined to have defrauded the State and private entities, this is solely a lawsuit on behalf of the State, and the requested penalty amount (subject to further litigation) is $250 M. Where that payment comes from is presumably up to Trump and family. And any private entity which feels it was defrauded would have to file separately.
