A judge has freed Mary Trump from a gag order, allowing the president’s niece to speak freely about her family and promote her hotly anticipated tell-all. 

The book—Too Much Is Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, which people close to the project say has already sold close to 1 million copies and is on its third print run—is due out on Tuesday. 

In a statement to The Daily Beast, Mary Trump’s attorney, Theodore Boutrous Jr. said, “The court got it right in rejecting the Trump family’s effort to squelch Mary Trump’s core political speech on important issues of public concern. The First Amendment forbids prior restraints because they are intolerable infringements on the right to participate in democracy. Tomorrow, the American public will be able to read Mary’s important words for themselves.”

The development comes as the man spearheading the complicated and time consuming legal effort to stop the book’s publication and enforce Mary’s gag order, her uncle Robert, was readmitted to the same intensive care unit at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York on Thursday where he had spent 10 days in June in a serious condition, according to multiple people familiar with the situation. 

By Monday afternoon, the president’s younger brother was said to be “resting” after being moved from the neurological intensive care unit (NSICU) to the hospital’s neurosurgical care unit (NSCU). His celebrity attorney, Charles Harder, did not respond to multiple requests for comment. 

As The Daily Beast first reported, less than 48 hours after getting out of the hospital’s NSICU in New York, Robert, 72, launched legal action to try and stop the publication of his niece’s explosive tell-all book.
