Judge tentatively denies dismissal of Trump U. suit

A federal judge strongly indicated Friday he would allow a lawsuit to move forward against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump by former customers who contend they were defrauded by his defunct real estate program, Trump University. U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel issued a tentative oral ruling from the bench at the start of a hearing in San Diego on a motion to dismiss the case by Trump’s lawyers. The ruling came a day after Trump accepted the GOP nomination. By Greg Moran — San Diego Union-Tribune

Jeff Wood’s daughter, Ashley Wood, was found dead by her mother Tuesday in her bedroom at their home in Rocklin, 22 miles from Sacramento. By Veronica Rocha — Los Angeles Times
