Donald Trump will be back in a Chicago courtroom to fight against a hotel lawsuit.

Trump resumes his testimony Wednesday morning.

He is being sued by 87-year-old investor Jackie Goldberg.

She lives in a Trump Tower unit, but she also bought two hotel units for about 2 million dollars.

Goldberg is suing for her deposit, and damages, claiming that Trump breached their contract.

Her lawsuit claims Trump promised profit sharing, but then pulled it after Goldberg put her money down.

“This has nothing to do with buyers’ remorse.  Ms. Goldberg is a woman of means.  She doesn’t have to worry about that,” said Goldberg’s Attorney Shelly Kulwin.

On the stand, Tuesday, Trump testified that he delegates many of the day to day decisions about Trump Tower.

“He’s coming here to do a couple of things.  Tell the truth and tell his side of the story,” said Trump’s attorney Stephen Novack.

The plaintiff’s attorney accused Trump of boasting while on the stand by going on about himself and his real estate empire.
Trump’s continued testimony is expected to take up half of Wednesday’s proceedings.
