A book by Donald Trump’s niece can be released as planned, an appellate judge ruled Wednesday, the latest defeat for family members hoping to rein in an explosive account scheduled to be published this month.

Judge Alan Scheinkman said Simon & Schuster can move forward with publishing Mary L. Trump’s “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” overturning a restraining order granted earlier this week that temporarily blocked the memoir. The publisher had argued that tens of thousands of copies had already been shipped, a similar line of reasoning that aided the publication last month of former national security adviser John Bolton’s book about his time in the White House.

Though the restraining order was lifted against Simon & Schuster, it remains in place for Mary Trump, the daughter of the president’s older brother, and the case against her will likely move ahead next week.

“We support Mary L. Trump’s right to tell her story in ‘Too Much and Never Enough,’ a work of great interest and importance to the national discourse that fully deserves to be published for the benefit of the American public,” the publisher said in a statement to The New York Times. “As all know, there are well-established precedents against prior restraint and pre-publication injunctions.”
