A U.S. judge will hear arguments on Aug. 29 in a lawsuit that President Donald Trump filed to block a U.S. House of Representatives committee from obtaining his New York state tax returns, according to a court filing.

U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols said the hearing later this month would focus on whether he has jurisdiction over New York officials named as defendants in Trump's lawsuit.



Nichols said the New York officials should not comply with a request by the House Ways and Means Committee for the tax information until he has had a chance to rule on the jurisdictional issues.
