Real estate mogul, TV reality show host, and political hornet nest kicker Donald Trump is apparently taking a little time off from looking for President Obama's Kenyan roots to testify in a lawsuit that revolves around two units in his Chicago Trump Tower. Jacqueline Goldberg is suing the Trump Tower, claiming buyers were originally promised a share in revenue from the building's hotel but that the Trump organization then backed off of the deal. From the Tribune:
Goldberg deposited $516,000 on the hotel units, which she intended to buy as investments because of that revenue-sharing plan and other promised investment incentives, the lawsuit said. But she decided not to complete the sale after the hotel changed the terms, according to the suit.
Goldberg is seeking a return of her deposit and damages in excess of $500,000, according to the suit.
As a result, Trump is slated to testify on behalf of his company and building on May 13, the first time, apparently, that he's ever testified in anything involving the Tower along the Chicago River.
