Court Approves Trump University Settlement
Via CNN Money: Trump University $25 million settlement approved
Thousands of former Trump University students will get most of their money back, with a judge on Friday approving a $25 million settlement.
“The settlement is fair, adequate, and reasonable,” Judge Gonzalo Curiel said in his decision.Nearly 4,000 former students submitted claims and those who are eligible could get back about 90% of their money.
The settlement was agreed to last November, just 10 days after Donald Trump won the presidential election, but still needed court approval.
The sad question is: how many Trump supporters will see this an the vindictive actions of a Mexican-descended judge and not as a clear evidence of Trump’s unethical business practices?
Also, a pro tip, real universities don’t have “Gold Elite” status:
A “one-year apprenticeship” at Trump University cost $1,495, according to court documents, while a “membership” cost at least $10,000 and the “Gold Elite,” the seminar’s most expensive class, cost $35,000.
