WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge is ordering the release of Trump University internal documents in a class-action lawsuit against the now-defunct real estate school owned by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
The order by U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel in San Diego came Friday in response to a request by The Washington Post. The order calls for the documents to be released by Thursday.
Trump University has been cited in anti-Trump political ads during the primary campaign as evidence that Trump doesn’t fulfill his promises.
Trump’s lawyers deny any wrongdoing in the case before Curiel as well as another class-action suit in San Diego and a $40 million lawsuit filed by the state of New York alleging that more than 5,000 people had been defrauded.
