A New York judge held real estate services giant Cushman & Wakefield in contempt of court for refusing to comply with subpoenas issued as part of the state attorney general’s civil probe into former President Donald Trump’s company.

Cushman will have to pay a $10,000-a-day fine, starting Wednesday, until it complies with the subpoenas, the office of Attorney General Letitia James said.

The Tuesday night order from Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron came less than a week after he lifted a contempt order against Trump himself.

Both orders were imposed for failure to fully comply with subpoenas from James’ office, which is investigating allegations that the Trump Organization improperly reported the stated valuations of some of its real estate assets for financial gain.

The firm did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Engoron’s contempt order.
