NEW YORK, N.Y. – A federal judge in San Diego has canceled a civil fraud trial involving the now-defunct Trump University after a settlement was announced.                 

Judge Gonzalo Curiel confirmed Friday that a deal has been reached in all three cases involving President-elect Donald Trump’s former school for real estate investors.             

Curiel says the agreement is subject to his approval.     

Curiel says the settlement totals $25 million — $21 for two San Diego cases and $4 million for a New York case. Plaintiffs’ attorney Jason Forge confirmed the deal.       

The trial has been set to begin Nov. 28.              

The suits had alleged that Trump University failed to deliver the quality real estate investing education it promised.
