Donald Trump of Celebrity Apprentice has been in court battling 87-year-old grandmother, Jacqueline Goldberg regarding a dispute over a condominium. And now, the lawsuit verdict is in and Trump has won. Keep reading for more details.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the lawsuit was filed over a condominium dispute at Trumps high-rise Chicago hotel, the Trump International Hotel and Tower. During the trial, Goldberg testified saying that Trump had pulled a fast one on her. How did he supposedly do that? Goldberg explained that after she forked over a $500,000 deposit on two condos at high-rise hotel, Trump yanked away financial incentives including a profit sharing plan at the hotel. And as a result, she was seeking a whopping $6 million in damages!
However, Trump’s attorney argued that Goldberg had signed a contract with Trump that stated he could change the terms at his discretion and as such, Trump hadn’t done anything wrong.
U.S. District Judge, Amy St. Eve presided over the hearing. An eight-member jury consisting of six women and two men deliberated for more than three-hours over two days to reach a verdict. And although the 87-year old grandmother was hoping to cash in on $6 million big ones, it just wasn’t to be. The lawsuit verdict swung in Trump’s favor when a Chicago federal jury failed to award any damages to Goldberg.
