A recent ruling has held Donald Trump liable for fraud, creating significant uncertainties for the Trump Organization 

New York Judge Arthur Engoron delivered the shocking ruling, finding Trump and his adult sons liable for fraud and canceling the organization's business certification 

Trump's legal team is grappling with the ruling's unclear scope, raising questions about which parts of the company are affected and whether it includes unrelated entities like Trump family residences 

The ruling appoints a receiver to oversee the dissolution of Trump's corporate entities, a move reserved for significant business fraud cases 

Questions arise about how the receiver will manage the dissolution of properties, including those outside New York, like Mar-a-Lago 

Despite the ruling, the trial is proceeding, aiming to hold Trump and his sons liable for insurance fraud and false business records 

The trial involves a substantial number of witnesses, with 188 individuals set to testify, though the exact breakdown remains unspecified 

Trump's legal team intends to appeal the ruling, claiming it could lead to the nationalization of the Trump Organization 

The legal battle is expected to be protracted and complex, with both sides preparing for a challenging process 

The outcome of this case will have far-reaching implications for Donald Trump, the Trump Organization, and its extensive business empire
