A New Jersey judge has dismissed a defamation lawsuit that Donald Trump filed against author Timothy O’Brien, whose book estimated Trump’s wealth as much lower than Trump says it is. O’Brien, in “Trump Nation: The Art of Being the Donald,” reported that anonymous sources told him Trump’s net worth is between $150 million and $250 million, while Trump estimates his wealth at around $4 billion. Trump said his reputation and business had been hurt by the book.
