SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A federal judge in San Diego will hear arguments Thursday on pretrial motions in a class-action lawsuit claiming that students in the now-defunct Trump University were duped into paying as much as $35,000 to learn insider real estate secrets from experts handpicked by the president- elect himself.
Last month, attorneys in the lawsuit filed documents asking U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel to exclude certain evidence from a trial scheduled to begin Nov. 28. Attorneys for the plaintiffs said lawyers for Trump filed excessive documents and exhibits in support of their motions in an effort to delay the trial.
Lawyers for President-elect Trump have asked the judge to exclude things he said during the campaign and things said about him, saying it could prejudice the jury.
The six-year-old lawsuit alleges that Trump University falsely gave the impression it was an accredited university, that students would be taught by experts hand-picked by Trump and that they would receive a year of mentoring.
Trump's lawyers have argued that many students gave the real estate program positive ratings and those who failed to succeed had only themselves to blame.
During the campaign, Trump criticized Curiel's handling of the lawsuit, calling the Indiana-born former prosecutor a Mexican and asserting that his ancestry made him unfit to try the case.
