A federal appeals court revived a lawsuit accusing Trump of emoluments violations Friday. The case was originally dismissed in late 2017 and is one of three major emoluments lawsuits filed against Trump. Plaintiffs in the case include a hotel operator and restaurant owners who say Trump is using his office to give his New York and D.C. businesses a competitive advantage by allowing government patrons to seek favor with the president in exchange for spending money at his properties. Trump is expected to appeal the decision, which could end up at the Supreme Court.
