Trump settles lawsuit filed by protesters over 2015 scuffle
Former President Donald Trump has settled a lawsuit filed by a group of protesters who say they were roughed up by the Republican’s private security guards during his 2015 presidential campaign.
The two sides settled as a jury was being selected in a New York courtroom for a civil trial, one of a spate of legal entanglements involving the former president.
On Wednesday, Trump filed a lawsuit in Florida seeking to thwart one of those cases, a suit filed by New York Attorney General Letitia James that alleges Trump and his company, the Trump Organization, inflated his net worth by billions of dollars and misled banks and others for years about the value of various assets.
Details of the settlement in the protesters’ lawsuit were not divulged.
