CHICAGO, Ill - An 87-year-old woman who alleges Donald Trump cheated her in a bait-and-switch scheme has told jurors she had qualms about suing the developer-turned-TV star given his power and influence.
But during testimony Monday, when she was asked why she nonetheless took Trump to court, Jacqueline Goldberg replied firmly that "Somebody had to stand up to him."
Goldberg says "The Apprentice" star enticed her into buying two condos at Chicago's Trump International Hotel & Tower with an offer to share profits of the entire building.
But she told jurors at the civil trial in Chicago that she felt "conned" when Trump withdrew the profit-sharing plan after she bought the condos.
Testifying last week, Trump denied the allegations. He also told reporters that Goldberg was in fact trying to rip him off.
