A New York judge has reportedly ruled that Donald Trump can't keep his $10 million lawsuit against a former staffer behind closed doors — for now.

Judge Eileen Bransten on Thursday ordered Trump to prove in New York Supreme Court on Aug. 10 why the suit against former adviser Sam Nunberg must stay in arbitration and out of a courtroom, The Daily Beast reports.

The GOP presumptive nominee's lawsuit accuses Nunberg of violating a confidentiality agreement for allegedly leaking a story to the New York Post about a public screaming match between former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and spokesperson Hope Hicks.

In his response, Nunberg alleges Trump is trying to "use the sword of private arbitration proceeding against me to silence media coverage" of a "sordid and apparently illicit affair," The Daily Beast reports.

Nunberg was fired from Trump's campaign last August after making racially insensitive comments on Facebook.
