The law school and Trump University have been embroiled in legal battles over the past year, and a new lawsuit filed Monday seeks to stop the Trump Organization from collecting fees and fees from students who paid for tuition.
The lawsuit is filed in federal court in New York, where the Trump organization was based when it opened its first campus in Atlantic City in 2004.
The company also owns other Atlantic City real estate.
The suit asks the judge to stop Trump from collecting the fees and charges from current and former students who attended Trump University.
The court will also hear a motion to dismiss the lawsuit by two former Trump University employees, as well as the attorney general’s suit against the company and the Trump family.
A spokeswoman for the attorney generals office declined to comment.
“It’s a very serious allegation, and we are taking it very seriously,” said Laura Seipel, an attorney at Greenberg Traurig.
“We are very disappointed in the court’s actions today.
We will be challenging this in the appropriate venue.”
The lawsuit alleges that Trump University “has failed to fulfill its obligations to its former students, and has failed to provide adequate notice of its obligations.”
It also claims that “some of its former and current students were misled, misled, and duped” into paying fees to Trump University by Trump himself, and that Trump himself “conspired with a third party to defraud the Trump Foundation of more than $10 million.”
A person familiar with the lawsuit said the lawsuit will likely be consolidated with another, similar case that Trump filed in December.
Trump’s company has been accused of bilking students out of more $2 billion, including former Trump students who spent months and months on the Trump business class plane.
The former students alleged that the Trump administration was pressuring them to take the Trump course and pay tuition and fees.
A former Trump employee who spoke on condition of anonymity because she had not yet been charged, said that while she worked for Trump at the time of her internship, she was told not to ask questions or discuss the class.
“I would ask them, ‘If you had any concerns about the class, why didn’t you take it?
What did you need to do?'” she said.
“And then he would say, ‘Because we want you to pay.'”
She said the internship ended shortly after she graduated.
Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
A person close to Trump said he had no knowledge of the lawsuit, and he denied that his company has profited from the fraud scheme.
“There is no question that we are innocent of all of these accusations,” the person said.
