CHICAGO (AP) -- Donald Trump is set to testify Tuesday at a civil trial where he's accused of enticing investors to buy condos at his Chicago skyscraper with promises of profit-sharing, then quietly reneging on them.
A federal judge said Monday that the developer-turned-TV personality should be ready to take the stand in Chicago on Tuesday afternoon.
The trial stems from a lawsuit filed by Jacqueline Goldberg. She bought two condos for around $1 million apiece in the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago.
In his opening statement, Goldberg's lawyer, Shelly Kulwin, portrayed the sale of condos to his 87-year-old client as a bait and switch. But Trump's attorney, Stephen Novack, said Goldberg was a sophisticated investor who signed documents giving Trump executives the power to withdraw those initial profit-sharing pledges.
