Appeals Court upholds Trump U $25m settlement

A federal appeals court rejected a challenge to the $25 million settlement President Trump must pay to former students of the now-shuttered Trump University.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a challenge to the settlement brought by a former student of the program, Sherri Simpson, who said she wanted to go to trial with Trump over the $19,000 she paid for Trump University, Politico reported Tuesday.

Simpson’s lawyers argued that notices sent to Trump University members had guaranteed they would be able to opt out of class-action lawsuits either before or immediately after a settlement.

However, the panel ruled that the class action suit “promised only one opportunity to opt out.”

"The correct inquiry here is what an average class member would have understood the notice to guarantee ... and the actions of the class members in this case bolster our conclusion that a reasonable reading of the notice precludes Simpson’s interpretation,” Judge Jacqueline Nguyen wrote in the ruling, joined by Judges Andrew Hurwitz and Steven Logan. All three judges were appointed by former President Obama.

TVNL Comment:  Just a reminder of the Shyster-in-Chief's recent past, in which he cheated people out of tens of thousands of dollars.
