Trump seeks to dismiss lawsuit over Trump University


SAN DIEGO (AP) — One day after Donald Trump accepted the Republican nomination for president of the United States, his lawyers will be in court to try to get a lawsuit dismissed alleging that the business mogul defrauded customers who took courses with false promises of teaching success in real estate at the now-defunct Trump University.

Lawyers for Trump will appear Friday before U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel to argue that a lawsuit against the nominee lacks merit.

The complaint filed in 2013 by a former customer is one of two class-action lawsuits that Trump faces in San Diego over Trump University before the same judge, a target of the nominee’s repeated scorn. Trump also faces a lawsuit in New York.
