Trump to testify in now-defunct Trump University class-action lawsuit
After the presidential vote on Nov. 8, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump will testify in a class-action lawsuit that accuses his now-defunct Trump University of swindling people.
According to the lawsuit, which was filed in 2013, Trump and his now-defunct university defrauded people who paid up to $35,000 for property investment seminars.
Plaintiffs in the lawsuit have been claiming that the university lured them only to defraud them once checks deposited by them were cashed. The plaintiffs seek $40 million in restitution in addition to penalties and other costs.
Last year, a lawyer for Trump defended him, calling the allegations labeled by the supposed student-victims “totally lacking in any merit” and stressed that he would prevail in the end whether it becomes by motion or at trial.
A federal judge directed the trial to start in San Diego on Nov. 28. This will ensure that Trump won’t have to testify in the case during his ongoing presidential campaign.
Trump’s lawyer Daniel Petrocelli said his client would attend much of the trial and take the witness stand. There is a possibility that he could take the witness stand as president-elect.
