A mid-level state appeals court on Tuesday ruled that lawyers for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump can argue before New York’s highest court that fraud claims against Trump University brought by the state’s attorney general should be dismissed.
In March, Trump suffered a legal setback in the case when the same mid-level appeals court allowed a multimillion-dollar fraud claim to proceed. The claim is part of a lawsuit that accuses the now-defunct Trump venture of misleading thousands of people who paid up to $35,000 to learn the billionaire businessman’s real estate investment strategies.
