Jury begins deliberating in Trump Tower trial

Tonight an 87-year-old Chicago woman’s lawsuit against New York billionaire Donald Trump is in the hands of a federal jury.

The jury deliberated for about 90 minutes today  before going home.

In closing arguments, Jackie Goldber’s lawyer accused flamboyant billionaire Trump of lying on the witness stand and expressed his personal distaste for the reality TV star. He said Trump was motivated by greed.

Trump is accused of a real estate bait and switch at his iconic tower in Chicago and of reneging on a deal that would have shared profits with investors. He says his accuser got buyer’s remorse when the market went south.

Jacqueline Goldberg is a hard-working, self-made real estate success in her own right who owns one Trump Tower unit and put a half-million down on two more. She now seeks $6 million in a case her lawyer characterized today as “Chicago vs New York.”

Trump testified last week and say’s he is the victim.  Trump’s attorneys say the contract also reserved the right for them to change the terms of the amenities.

The jury resumes deliberations in the morning.
