A federal judge just made a massive move against the presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump when he set a hearing for the Trump University case for the first day of the Republican National Convention.
According to Politico, the hearing pertains to the class-action lawsuit against Trump and his Trump University real estate seminar program. U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel recently issued an order setting the July 18 hearing on a move by Trump’s lawyers to toss out the Cohen v. Trump case.
This came months after Trump accused Curiel of being biased against him because he “happens to be Spanish” and therefore probably disagrees with The Donald’s strong statements against illegal immigration.
Curiel is also considering when to set a trial in a case involving people in three states who paid up to $35,000 to take part in the Trump University program. There was talk of setting the trial for June or August, but the judge seemed uncomfortable with the idea of a jury trial taking place while Trump is still an active candidate.
Most of the lawsuits against Trump claim that he misrepresented that his Trump University instructors were handpicked by him and that they had extensive background in real-estate when in fact he later admitted that he never met most of them. Trump has admitted that at least one instructor lied about their background, and another was a convicted felon. Trump’s lawyers argue that any misrepresentations are irrelevant because the students got valuable information and mentorships from the program.
These cases against Trump are just more examples of liberals trying to take him down. Sorry, liberal nitwits, but Trump isn’t going anywhere anytime soon!
