Just when I settled down and thought 'faithless electors' would never overturn this election...

I expected Trump to settle out of court.

It's his way.


It's not just him that has to agree to settle though. The Plaintiffs have to agree, too.

Up until now, Trump has repeatedly said he would not be settling.


What he says and what he does are not necessarily the same thing.

Well, of course not. Nothing about either candidate can be taken at face value.

Attorneys for President-elect Donald Trump have settled all three fraud civil lawsuits against the now-defunct Trump University for $25 million and no admission of wrongdoing, according to a source familiar with the settlement negotiations.

So glad to not be worrying about this anymore.


ETA: Although there is this weirdness that has me scratching my head:


Schneiderman said that under the terms of the settlement, "every victim will receive restitution" and that Trump will pay up to $1 million in penalties to the state of New York "for violating state education laws."


ETA 2: Has Trump 'admitted' to violating state laws? Something feels off about that part.

Crap, this is still on my radar.

Yep - no court date now.
I think it was sensible for Trump to settle and get this out of the way.

The deal required no admission of wrong doing.

Agree. That's what I thought he should do, too.

But this part has me concerned and has me caught off-guard:


Schneiderman said that under the terms of the settlement, "every victim will receive restitution" and that Trump will pay up to $1 million in penalties to the state of New York "for violating state education laws."


Did Trump admit to violating NY state education laws? If so...that could be exploited in all kinds of ways.

I suspect that he is not admitting that either - the state will have brought a case against him too and he settled with no admission of guilt.

The NY attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, brought the case. This is what he said today:


Schneiderman said that under the terms of the settlement...Trump will pay up to $1 million in penalties to the state of New York "for violating state education laws."


That sounds like he admitted to violating state laws....if he agreed to pay a penalty for "violating state education laws."

I'M NEVER SATISFIED, UK! *crazy eyes*
