A federal judge dismissed a 2018 lawsuit accusing Donald Trump of involvement with a fraudulent marketing company, redirecting the case to state court just weeks before the trial.

The lawsuit alleged that Trump used his TV show “The Celebrity Apprentice” and promotional events to promote a telecommunications firm, exploiting investors and teenagers.

The judge ruled that the case, previously denied class-action status, would be more appropriately handled in state court, leaving the trial’s future uncertain. (Trending: Hunter Biden’s Art Scheme Exposed By GOP Probe)

District Judge Lorna Schofield wrote, “Because this case now involves only three individual plaintiffs asserting claims under their respective states’ laws, it is not better suited for adjudication in this court than in state court, particularly those of California, Maryland, and Pennsylvania?”

“Even though discovery has been completed and certain motions decided, retaining jurisdiction would not serve economy or convenience,” she continued.

Plaintiffs’ attorney, Roberta Kaplan, expressed the intention to continue the fight despite the decision.

Roberta Kaplan, an attorney representing the plaintiffs, said, “Today’s decision addresses only where — not if — plaintiffs’ claims should be brought to trial. We intend to continue the fight, and our brave clients look forward to their day in court.”
