87-year-old woman loses to Trump in civil case

Posted:
CHICAGO (AP) -- -

Jurors have sided with billionaire Donald Trump and against an 87-year-old grandmother who took him to court alleging that the "Apprentice" star cheated her in a skyscraper condo deal.

The federal jury in Chicago returned with a finding in Trump's favor Thursday.

Goldberg claimed the real estate mogul-turned-TV star carried out a bait and switch by offering her profit sharing in his namesake Chicago tower and reneging only after she committed to buy.

The case pitted the New Yorker who revels in his image as a big talker against Goldberg. A plaintiff's attorney portrayed her as a former waitress who learned her values growing up during the Depression.

The Evanston woman had sought various damages totaling around $6 million.
