What is interesting is that Schneiderman’s lawsuit can continue. Trump’s lawyers argued that the lawsuit fell outside the statue of limitations to claim fraud. From Times Union website:
An appellate court ruled in March that Schneiderman’s lawsuit can continue, shooting down arguments from Trump’s attorneys that the suit falls outside of the three-year statute of limitations for claiming fraud.
From the New York Attorney General website, Schneiderman stated in March that his case is subject to a six-year statute:
“Today’s decision is a clear victory in our effort to hold Donald Trump and Trump University accountable for defrauding thousands of students. The state Supreme Court had already granted our request for summary judgment determining that Trump and his University are liable for operating illegally in New York as an unlicensed educational institution. Today’s decision means our entire fraud case can move forward, and confirms that the case is subject to a six year statute of limitations. As the state’s chief law enforcement officer, my job is to see that perpetrators of fraud are brought to justice. We look forward to demonstrating in a court of law that Donald Trump and his sham for-profit college defrauded more than 5,000 consumers out of millions of dollars.”
