Trump's lawyers try to postpone fraud suit

Politico -  Lawyers for President-elect Donald Trump are formally requesting the postponement of a trial scheduled to begin later this month in a federal class-action fraud suit over his Trump University real estate seminar program.

In a motion filed in federal court in San Diego Saturday evening, attorneys for Trump said the looming jury trial should not divert him from the "critical and all- consuming" work of preparing for the presidency.

However, Trump's lawyers said they're open to the idea of him giving another deposition in the case before he is sworn in on Jan. 20.
