The US President-elect Donald trump has agreed to settle claims on the class action suit the students closed with the scandal Trump University. To do this, he will pay $ 25 million, announced attorney General of new York Eric Schneiderman. The prosecution calls it a victory, although the agreement requires trump to plead guilty.
In addition to the reimbursement to the students who pay tuition fees of about 35 thousand dollars, the trump or one of his companies will pay $ 1 million penalty to the Treasury.
As reminds “Interfax”, formerly trump categorically denied all charges against Trump University and said during the presidential campaign that he would not deal with settlement of claims.
Case of fraud when training at Trump University was launched in 2013. A lawsuit was then filed by students who were enrolled in the seminars on real estate. As stated by the students, the University gave “promises to teach the secrets of success in real estate”, but in reality seminars in more resembled a long ad. The plaintiffs also alleged that Trump University was guaranteed by “advanced” students after teaching salaries in the “tens of thousands of dollars” every month, and in fact, many plaintiffs were left with debts.
As recalled by RBC, even in the spring it was assumed that the trump after the election will appear on the case before the court. The President-elect has agreed to settle a lawsuit after attorney General Schneiderman stated that after the election, the investigation will not be stopped.
