Judge postpones Trump's sentencing hearing after Supreme Court immunity ruling | 2 July 2024 | A judge on Tuesday postponed Donald Trump’s sentencing in his New York hush money case as the former president seeks to have his conviction overturned following a Supreme Court ruling that granted him some immunity in a separate criminal case. In a letter on Tuesday afternoon, Judge Juan Merchan said he would resolve Trump's motion to set aside the verdict on Sept. 6 and postponed his sentencing, "if such is still necessary," until Sept. 18. Trump's lawyers launched their effort to get the verdict tossed out just hours after the Supreme Court's Monday ruling, which said Trump is immune from criminal prosecution for some official acts in his federal election interference case in Washington.
