The embarrassing way Donald Trump found out he was being sued for $40M

Media

Normally when a person is being sued, he's given some legal notice. But Donald Trump is not normal. He's special, thus he was alerted of a $40 million lawsuit against him in the most appropriate way possible: by a producer for ABC's "Good Morning America."

The back story from The Daily Beast:

Shortly before 9 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 23, an ABC News producer wrote to Trump’s press officer, Rhona Graff, requesting an interview with her boss for Good Morning America “regarding a petition that is going to be filed in court shortly by the N.Y. Attorney General’s office against The Trump Entrepreneur Initiative LLC and including The Trump Organization Inc.” ...

The network producer’s email, Trump’s operatives claim, served as their formal notification of Schneiderman’s imminent legal action. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Trump Organization executive vice president and special counsel Michael Cohen professed shock—shock— that this was the rude way in which they were informed of the lawsuit’s timing, especially because Trump’s lawyers had been trying in good faith to negotiate a settlement with Schneiderman since early 2011. ...

“Who learns of an intention—after two and a half plus years of ongoing conversations—that you’re going to be sued, from a segment producer at Good Morning America?” Cohen demanded.

The lawsuit against Trump deals with his so-called Trump University, which allegedly failed to provide consumers with the real estate expertise and one-on-one time with Trump that it promised.
