A judge on Wednesday told Donald Trump that he will not be allowed to skip testimony he is scheduled to give in early January in regards to a lawsuit he filed against celebrity chef José Andrés for canceling plans to open a Spanish restaurant at Trump International in Washington.

Andrés pulled out of the deal because of controversial comments the President-elect made about Mexicans on the campaign trail.

Trump’s attorneys had requested that he not testify or that the session be limited because he had been busy with "matters of very significant public importance” and that he only had "limited knowledge of the facts at issue.”

D.C. Superior Court Judge Jennifer Di Toro wouldn’t budge.

"The Court finds that entry of a protective order would cause significant prejudice to the Defendants by inhibiting their right to prepare the case for trial, and minimal, if any, prejudice to Mr. Trump, whose schedule the Defendants have agreed to accommodate," Di Toro wrote. "The Court finds that Mr. Trump has unique personal knowledge relevant to the claims presented in the instant action and has not shown good cause for the entry of a protective order."
