The House committee has expressed no interest in Trump's NY returns, but categorically opposed any attempt by the president or the courts to preempt such a request in the future, leaving their options open.
The TRUST Act, which was signed into law in July 2019, allows state officials to access the tax returns of certain government officials, including the president, if the tax returns are requested by a congressional tax committee and have been requested for a legitimate legislative objective.
The Judge added that Trump could renew his claims against the NY officials if future events trigger the DC statute, or he can sue the NY officials in their home state.
Trump sued New York's attorney general, tax commissioner and the House and Ways Means Committee in July, seeking an injunction to block the application of a NY state law known as the TRUST Act that could allow the Democratic-controlled House to obtain the tax returns.
U.S. Judge Carl Nichols granted a motion to dismiss a lawsuit that Trump filed in July over the TRUST Act in NY, which gave Congress the authority to retrieve tax information from NY residents.
Trump had sued to block James from enforcing the new law and block Schmidt from providing the documents. Trump wanted to head the Democrats off in case they decide to go that route.
Nichols was appointed to the court in June 2019. As New York residents who had no significant contacts with DC, they were not under the court's jurisdiction.
The lawsuit represents one of several court battles over Trump's tax returns.

Trump's lawyers, according to Bloomberg, said that NY enacted the TRUST Act to punish Trump for his speech and political beliefs, which violate the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment.
Trump's lawyers argued the suit belonged in Washington because that's where Trump's NY returns would be sent and analyzed, if Neal requested them.
The decision is likely to increase pressure on Neal to make use of the NY law.
The House panel, chaired by Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.), has not requested Trump's state returns.
Wary of his own suit appearing to be a political fishing expedition, Neal argued he needs Trump's federal returns in order to understand how well the IRS is implementing a long-standing policy of auditing the president. Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan), who sponsored the legislation that became law.
House General Counsel Douglas N. Letter had urged Nichols to deny Trump's requests, saying the committee's decision whether to use the new state law is "absolutely immune" from court review under the Constitution's grant of legislative powers to Congress.
