Federal lawsuit against Trump University will go to trial, judge rules

A judge in San Diego ruled yesterday that a federal lawsuit against Donald Trump by former Trump University students will proceed to trial. The judge said the former students had raised a genuine concern about whether Trump knowingly participated in a scheme to defraud students. Trump University charged students up to $35,000 for non-accredited courses in real estate, entrepreneurship, asset management and wealth creation. The now-defunct program is being investigated for allegations of misleading marketing practices and aggressive sales techniques.
