N.Y. Judge Orders Trump University Case to Trial

April 27, 2016

A New York judge ruled Tuesday that the state's attorney general's case against Trump University will go to trial, according to an ABC News affiliate.

Donald Trump, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, could testify at the trial, which could be held this fall.

The case is part of an ongoing lawsuit brought by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, which alleges that Trump University made false and deceptive claims to students. The unaccredited institution didn't operate as a traditional school or job training program, but more of an opportunity for students to seek advice from purported experts in real-estate and business.
