July 29, 2016 New York Judge halts retired postal worker’s Trump University lawsuit
A New York judge on Thursday halted a lawsuit by a retired U.S. postal worker who claimed Trump University bilked him out of thousands of dollars he paid to attend a real estate training program marketed by the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Justice Andrew Tarantino of New York state court in Suffolk County stopped retiree Gregory Ryan’s lawsuit on Thursday in light of pending class actions over the candidate’s now-defunct Trump University.
Gregory Ryan, sued Trump University in state court on Long Island, saying he was the victim of a $25,000 “rip-off.”
“We’ve all seen Donald Trump on TV,” said Ryan, 59. “He’s well known so that gave me a degree of trust … I thought that something with his name on it could help me make money, that it could help me out. But when I got into it I found out that was not true at all. I got left holding the bag.”
