New York (CNN Business)A New York judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked the publication of an unflattering tell-all book written by President Trump's niece that Simon & Schuster is set to publish in July.

Greenwald of the New York State Supreme Court, the state's trial court, is the first legal win for Robert S.

Robert Trump has sought to block the book by Mary Trump, the President's niece, contending it violates a confidentiality agreement related to the estate of the President's father, Fred Trump.

"Robert Trump is very pleased with the New York Supreme Court's injunction against Mary Trump and Simon & Schuster," Charles Harder, Robert Trump's attorney, said in a statement.

Calling the actions of Mary Trump and Simon & Schuster "reprehensible," Harder added that he looked forward to "vigorously litigating this case. "

In addition to his work for Robert Trump, Harder has a history of filing lawsuits against news organizations on behalf of President Trump.

Ted Boutrous, a renowned First Amendment attorney who represents Mary Trump, and who has also represented CNN on matters in the past, said the order "flatly violates the First Amendment. "

Adam Rothberg, a spokesperson for Simon & Schuster, said in a statement that the company was "disappointed" in the court's decision.

Simon & Schuster describes Mary Trump's book, "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man," as a "revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J.

The Tuesday ruling comes after a judge for the Queens County Surrogate Court in New York last week dismissed a similar attempt to block the book, citing a lack of jurisdiction.

After that case was dismissed, Robert Trump took his case before the New York State Supreme Court.

Robert Trump has argued that as part of litigation related to Fred Trump's will, a settlement was reached that included a confidentiality provision.

That provision, Robert Trump has argued, was agreed upon by all parties, including Mary Trump.

The Trump administration recently took legal action in an attempt to block the tell-all book of John Bolton, the former national security advisor.
