Trump lawyers to urge dismissal of university case in U.S. court

Republican U.S. presidential nominee Donald Trump formally accepts the nomination at the Republican National Convention in ClevelandBy Karen Freifeld NEW YORK (Reuters) – A U.S. District judge will hear arguments on Friday over whether to dismiss a 2013 fraud lawsuit against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump stemming from his Trump University real-estate seminars. Trump’s lawyers will also ask federal judge Gonzalo Curiel in San Diego to decertify the class action, which would force students to file individual lawsuits rather than pursue their fraud cases together. The lawsuit, one of at least three over the defunct Trump University, was filed on behalf of students who paid up to $35,000 to learn Trump’s real estate investing “secrets” from his “hand-picked” instructors.
