Here's a new twist in the lawsuit about Trump's Trump University.

Seems most of the opposing lawyers are big time Clinton money supporters !!!

And it looks like a lot of that moola was paid out for Clinton speeches !!!

Now who would have thought political money would be buried in this rabbit hole?

Wonder if this will stall the court proceedings?

Exclusive: Law Firm Behind Trump University Lawsuit Gave Big Money to the Clintons


Donald Trump has undoubtedly made the class action lawsuit against Trump University a campaign issue. For the last several days, he has been on a tear against federal Judge Gonzolo Curiel who is overseeing one of the class action lawsuits against Trump University. In the lawsuit, former students claim that the University and Trump violated federal law by luring them to sign up with false promises and then defrauded them once they handed over their checks.

LawNewz.com discovered that when it comes to politics, Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd, the law firm behind the class action lawsuit, is not exactly neutral either. Our analysis, using data first compiled by The Washington Post, found that Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd paid the Clintons a total of $675,000 in fees for speeches since 2009. Hillary Clinton gave a $225,000 speech at the law firm as recently as September 4, 2014. Bill Clinton also gave a speech for the same fee back in 2013, and another one in 2009 before the firm had been renamed (they used to be called Coughlin Stoia Geller Rudman & Robbins LLP). In fact, of the five law firms that paid for the Clintons to speak over the last few years, Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd paid out the most money.

Big time Clinton supporting lawfirm is representing all those people? Well, to be fair to the Clinton's what rich elitist isn't lining their pockets, Trump included?

That said, let's not take away the fact that real people who are not rich are together suing him. Do these Clinton lawyers have an agenda? Most definitely, and this situation is very similar to Peter Theil paying Hulk Hogans legal bills when he sued Gawker.

I read recently the judge wants to unseal some files. Is the judge a Clinton supporter too?

Judge directs internal Trump University documents to be released


Washington (CNN)A judge overseeing a lawsuit filed against Donald Trump regarding his closed real estate education program called Trump University has ruled parts of internal documents, including "playbooks" regarding running the enterprise, should be released as part of the case.

The playbooks, which include ones from 2009 and 2010, detail how the venture worked, how Trump University events were run and how to sell programs to customers.

From 2005 to 2010, when the program closed, about 10,000 students across the nation signed up for Trump University classes, which promised success in real estate by offering courses and seminars based on the principles of the businessman.
Now Trump University is the focus of two class action lawsuits in San Diego by some students who claim they were defrauded and a separate suit filed by the New York attorney general.

He was appointed by Obama. So.....

This is a civil case. Anyone can file a civil case, and rich people get targeted heavily.

Some people wanted to get rich, and took courses in real estate that did not make them as rich as they wanted, and they are blaming the courses. Could be no other reason I guess.

Ah, an Obama supporter eh? Could be he has an agenda too and if that's the case Trump is extra screwed!

Yes, this is America and people sue all the time for anything and nobody knows that better than Donald Trump.

Do you really think all these people are going to get rich off of this? No my friend, if they win they will not, they will hopefully get their money back and if they get a little more then BONUS!

Probably the same person who made Trump scam thousands of people is the same one who made Hillary delete 30,000 emails.

No.

We're focusing on a possible legal conspiracy !!

Anything even remotely connected to anything Obama or the Clintons do has an agenda.

Why is it a conspiracy?
They paid for speeches before she was running.

But But But


Trump University had an A at some point. The Better Business Bureau doesn't release details of its past ratings, but it did say Trump's program had ratings that ranged from A+ to D-.

From the OP:


In addition, in the midst of the litigation, one of the Robbins Geller attorneys, Patrick Coughlin, who is also ‘of counsel’ at the law firm, maxed out his donations to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Records maintained by the Federal Election Commission indicate that Coughlin has been a longtime financial supporter of both the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton. In February, he donated $5,400 to her campaign.

Duh, that is what I said.

And you are right I missed th 5400 donation one lawyer made to the campaign. Talk about conspiracy!

Well, if you look deeper you'll discover it received an A rating yearssss after it closed up shop so the complaints stopped coming in because all those who had something to complain about did it way back in 2010 when it received a D- rating. But why let facts get in the way of an agenda, amirite?

So essentially it got an A when it went under. Well done Trump, well done.

Trump University’s D- Rating



Donald Trump gets an ‘F’ for a video he posted to YouTube purporting to tell the “truth” about Trump University, the real-estate program that has been the subject of three ongoing lawsuits alleging fraud.

In the video, Trump holds up a sheet of paper showing that the Better Business Bureau gave Trump University an “A” rating, claiming it proves that what he said during the March 3 debate was correct. That’s false. As we wrote in our debate story, the most recent BBB rating for Trump University that we could find for the program was a “D-” in 2010 — which is when the school stopped taking new students.

But Trump keeps insisting he is right, even when the evidence proves him wrong. He tweeted a screenshot of the “A” rating after the debate. He posted a video to YouTube on March 7, criticizing Fox News for refusing to correct the record during the debate. He tweeted about that, too.



etter Business Bureau, March 8: During the period when Trump University appeared to be active in the marketplace, BBB received multiple customer complaints about this business. These complaints affected the Trump University BBB rating, which was as low as D- in 2010. As the company appeared to be winding down, after 2013, no new complaints were reported. Complaints over three years old automatically rolled off of the Business Review, according to BBB policy. As a result, over time, Trump University’s BBB rating went to an A in July 2014 and then to an A+ in January 2015.
