A Florida appellate court rejected Trump National Doral’s attempt to get out of paying a Miami paint store chain over $315,000 — based on an unpaid bill for $32,535, reports The Miami Herald.

“Trump’s company argued last summer and to the appellate court that The Paint Stop hadn’t followed certain Florida statutes to the letter and the Notice to Owner from The Paint Stop identified the wrong contractor. Both [the trial court] and the appellate court slapped those arguments down,” writes reporter 

The bill was for renovations on Donald Trump’s golf resort. Attorneys’ fees accounted for $282,949 in the judgment.
