Washington (CNN) Subpoenas were served on the Trump Organization and a dozen related entities in a lawsuit that challenged the ongoing business relationships of President Donald Trump during his tenure.

The District Office of Columbia Attorney General Karl Racine said on Wednesday that it “can confirm that all Trump Organizations have been served.” In addition, subpoenas are served in the State of Maine, the Attorney General said.

The lawsuit by DC and Maryland claims that Trump violates the Constitution’s prohibition on emoluments or payments made to the President by foreign or domestic government entities because of his continued interest in the Trump International Hotel.
