Trump lawyers made last-minute decision to settle NYC lawsuit after struggling to find jurors who didn't hate him: reportRaw Story - 45m ago
Former President Donald Trump's legal team has decided to settle with protesters who alleged they were beaten by his security guards outside Trump Tower seven years ago -- and it's reportedly because they feared jurors would pummel him.
The Daily Beast's John Pagliery reports that Trump's lawyers made a "last-minute decision" to settle "after struggling to find Bronx jurors who didn’t have strong feelings about Trump and his eponymous company."
The settlement was delivered to the plaintiffs after prospective jurors were sent out to lunch on Wednesday, as Trump lawyers had apparently concluded that taking the case to trial would result in a financial disaster for the twice-impeached former president.
