Jury reaches verdict in Donald Trump condo trial

CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

BREAKING UPDATE: The jury reached a verdict in the Donald Trump condo trial on Thursday afternoon. The verdict will be read at 2:15 p.m. and the Dirksen Federal Building.


Jurors are into their second day of deliberations at a civil trial in Chicago where an 87-year-old grandmother alleges Donald Trump cheated her in a condominium deal.

The federal jury resumed deliberations on Thursday. After closing arguments Wednesday, jurors deliberated for 90 minutes before heading home.

Jacqueline Goldberg is seeking damages totaling around $6 million. If jurors decide Trump defrauded Goldberg, they'll have to decide how much money to award her.

The case focuses on the glitzy Trump International Hotel & Tower near Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago.

Goldberg alleges the "Apprentice" star wooed her into buying properties by promising her a profit-sharing plan, then reneged after she committed to buy.

Trump's lawyers say she signed a contract giving Trump rights to cancel the offer whenever he saw fit.
