NY court says fraud suit over Trump University can continue | PBS NewsHour
“ALBANY, N.Y. A New York court on Tuesday refused to throw out a fraud lawsuit against Donald Trump over his former school for real estate investors.
The Appellate Division unanimously rejected Trumps request to dismiss the 2013 suit, ruling that a six-year statute of limitations applies.
Schneiderman, a Democrat, sued Trump and the school, which changed its name to the Trump Entrepreneur Initiative before it closed in 2010, for $40 million. The lawsuit seeks restitution and damages for more than 5,000 students nationwide, including 600 New Yorkers, who paid up to $35,000 each.
Todays decision means our entire fraud case can move forward, Schneiderman said. We look forward to demonstrating in a court of law that Donald Trump and his sham for-profit college defrauded more than 5,000 consumers out of millions of dollars.”
