Judge Sophia H. Hall’s one-page ruling is the latest development in a case brought to public attention in 2018, when the Chicago Tribune revealed the Trump International Hotel & Tower was the only downtown high-rise that had failed to take legally mandated steps to protect fish in the rapidly improving waterway.

During the operation of its heating and air conditioning systems, Trump’s Chicago high-rise siphons nearly 20 million gallons a day through intakes so powerful the machines could fill an Olympic swimming pool in less than an hour. It pumps water back into the river up to 35 degrees hotter.

Like other large users that draw water directly from rivers or lakes, Trump Tower is required to follow federal and state regulations detailing how facilities should limit the number of fish pinned against intake screens or killed by sudden changes in pressure and temperature.

State records obtained by the Tribune show Trump’s organization never followed the requirements.

The fines could amount to $12 million.

I wonder who he'll get to pay for the inevitable lawsuits to delay enforcement and then to pay the fine.

Think he'll siphon it from the PAC money?

Trump is going to be hung up with all these various lawsuits for the rest of his life. He won't be free of them until he dies.

I was thinking of a GoFundMe. He's down on his luck, had COVID, recently lost his job, and was kicked out of public housing.

Poor baby. Just a slight overlook. Small mistake he will quickly repair just as soon as he gets thru 101 lawsuits he will have pending.
