Trump golf club gets more time on liquor license challenge

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey has granted one of President Donald Trump’s golf clubs more time to respond to the threatened revocation of its liquor license over a drunken driving death.

The state moved last month to yank the license of the Trump National Golf Club Colts Neck in connection with a fatal crash in 2015.

Sharon Lauchaire, a spokeswoman for the attorney general’s office, said the state granted the extension until Dec. 4 to enter a plea to the allegations.

The Alcoholic Beverage Control Division said the club served too much alcohol to a man who then got into a fatal wreck.

Trump National attorney Chris Porrino sent a letter to the state late last month seeking the extension.

The Associated Press obtained the letter through the state’s open records law.
