Trump University update

NYTimes  After years of pursuing fraud claims against Donald J. Trump, lawyers representing former students of his defunct for-profit education venture, Trump University, appeared in federal court to try to fend off one last challenge: an objection to the $25 million settlement that would bring the case to a close.

Lawyers for Sherri Simpson, a former student from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., called on the federal judge, Gonzalo P. Curiel, to reject the settlement unless former students are given a chance to opt-out so they can pursue fraud claims against Mr. Trump on their own. The settlement is not enough for Ms. Simpson. She wants to see him tried and convicted of criminal racketeering and for Mr. Trump to apologize too.
