Judge appears close to approving Trump University settlement

NY [U.S.A.], April 1 (ANI): A federal judge on Friday approved $25 million agreement to settle fraud claim against President Donald Trump over his now-defunct Trump University. The suits accused the university of fleecing them for thousands of dollars with promises that they would gain "real estate investment secrets" through access to instructors handpicked by Trump.

The Friday ruling settles lawsuits in both California and New York, including the civil lawsuit brought by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel is once again reflecting on his second-oldest case - a almost seven-year-old lawsuit alleging that Donald Trump defrauded students of the now-defunct Trump University before he was president.

He said the plaintiffs "waited years for compensation while President Trump refused to settle and fought us every step of the way - until his stunning reversal last fall". Under terms of the settlement, Trump admits no wrongdoing.

Plaintiff attorneys say about 3,730 people will get at least 90 percent of their money back.

An attorney for that student could not immediately be reached for comment. President Donald Trump's $25 million settlement of a class-action lawsuit that alleged fraud at his now-defunct Trump University may.

The judge strongly rejected a request by a Florida woman who argued that she should have been given more opportunity to opt out of the settlement.

The University was closed in 2010 after the New York Department of Education directed to stop operating the program without a license.

Trump accused American-born Curiel past year during his presidential campaign of being unable to be impartial in the case because of his Mexican ancestry.

Ms Simpson, who appeared in two anti-Trump campaign ads, said they got little for their money - the videos were five years old, the materials covered information that could be found free on the internet and her mentor did not return calls or emails.

The case attracted a great deal of attention during the 2016 presidential campaign, with Trump's rivals for the Republican nomination as well as Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton using it against the billionaire businessman, who went on to win the November 8 election.
