Donald Trump Faces First Legal Suit As President-elect by TheHerald: 7:34am On Nov 11, 2016
President-elect Donald Trump is set to have a day in court as US Federal judge, Gonzalo Curiel on Thursday in San Diego, California seeks to try him over the defunct Trump University.

The case is scheduled to go to trial later this month and Trump is expected to testify in his own defence against allegations that Trump University for-profit business seminars were a hoax and hundreds of individuals were charged large sums of money for courses that were essentially worthless.

Curiel ruled against Trump’s legal team seeking to ban testimony relating to Trump’s conduct during the presidential campaign.

Curiel also ruled against Trump’s request to ban testimony about Trump University’s “F” rating by the Better Business Bureau and the fact that it has since gone bankrupt.

He also denied a request by Trump’s lawyers to ban discussion of the financial condition of students, many of whom described themselves as poor, and what impact the seminar fees had on their lives.

Trump’s lawyers argued testimony about the presidential campaign, and testimony about the other elements of the case are irrelevant and would serve to color the jury’s opinion of Trump and his business venture.

Curiel ruled in favor of allowing Trump’s defense team to call students who would tell “success stories” about how the courses improved their understanding of business and real estate.

Trump has steadfastly defended Trump University as a worthwhile investment for participants. The courses promised to offer students inside information on how he built his business.

In a technical ruling, Curiel found insufficient evidence or supporting case law to warrant granting Trump’s other requests, though he said Trump’s lawyers could object to individual pieces of testimony during the trial.

The trial is scheduled to begin on November 28.
