But since Trump was elected, U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel urged the parties to settle the case to avoid the immense complications of a president-elect facing trial while preparing to take office.
Last week, one of Trump's attorneys indicated that he might change his position on settling.
Schneiderman said Friday that he was pleased with the terms of the settlement. He first filed the suit in 2013.I'm really trying hard not to rant at the media right now. The Trump University case showed Trump's lack of ethics and was a reason I went looking for an honest man like Gary Johnson to vote for.
"The victims of Trump University have waited years for today's result and I am pleased that their patience -- and persistence -- will be rewarded by this $25 million settlement," he said in a statement.
