CHICAGO (AP) — Donald Trump's attorney says lawyers for an 87-year-old who claims the "Apprentice" star cheated her resorted to personal attacks on Trump because of a weak case.
The comments came Wednesday as Trump's attorney delivered his closing at a civil trial focused on a condo deal at Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago.
Goldberg alleges Trump wooed her into buying condos by promising her a profit-sharing plan, then reneged after she committed to buying.
Goldberg attorney Shelly Kulwin said in his closing he was repulsed by Trump. He told jurors, "The thought of my grandma being in the same room with that guy. Yuck!"
But Trump attorney Stephen Novack said such personal attacks reveal an absence of evidence. He said Goldberg knew a contract stipulated the profit-sharing could be canceled.
