Major Donald Trump Lawsuits: An Overview

Throughout Donald Trump’s career and presidency, he has incredibly been involved in more than 4,000 lawsuits. Here’s a look at the most significant ones.

The Justice Department’s Civil Rights division sued Donald Trump’s real estate company over allegations that Trump was not allowing people of color to rent his properties. The settlement required the Trump Corporation to submit vacancies lists to civil rights organizations.

Tenants of the Trump Parc apartment block sued the Trump-owned company Park South Associates, alleging that Donald Trump was forcing out tenants using various abusive tactics so that he could demolish the building. Trump didn’t win the case.

Jill Harth accused Trump of sexual harassment and assault. The lawsuit was settled for an undisclosed amount. The suit was settled alongside a 1995 breach of contract lawsuit.

Details must matter to Trump because he sued author Timothy O’Brien for stating in his book TrumpNation: The Art of Being Donald for saying Trump was a millionaire when, in fact, he was, and still is, a billionaire. The case was thrown out of court.

After the recession, Trump was unable to make repayments to Deutsche Bank for a loan he took out to construct a Chicago skyscraper. Trump sued the German bank for $3 billion in damages. But Deutsche Bank countersued Trump for $40 million.

The State of New York sued Trump after allegations of deceptive conduct and fraud at Trump University. The Supreme Court found Donald Trump to be personally liable.

Shortly after becoming president of the United States, one of Trump’s first actions was to ban travel and immigration on seven countries. Many government officials and civil rights groups were angered, and Trump’s decision resulted in several lawsuits. Although slight modifications were made after the lawsuits, Trump’s travel ban still stands.
