A federal judge on Monday finalized the $25 million settlement between President Trump and former students of the now-defunct Trump University.
U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel approved the settlement roughly a year ago. After a federal appeals court rejected a student’s objection to the settlement in February, Curiel finalized the deal on Monday.
The settlement marks an end to two class-action lawsuits filed by former students, who said they were misled into enrolling in the university’s real-estate seminars and given “educations” that were essentially worthless. Schneiderman later filed a civil suit over the programs.
Trump University, which shut down in 2010, was not required to admit wrongdoing in the settlement.
