Donald Trump's public attacks on the judge presiding over a high-profile lawsuit on him have some legal experts believing the presumptive Republican presidential nominee could be biased against the court system.

The Trump University class-action lawsuit is based in San Diego under Judge Gonzalo Curiel. Trump, reports The Washington Post, has criticized Curiel on several occasions regarding the civil case, whose trial is slated for after the November presidential election.

"I have a judge who is a hater of Donald Trump, a hater. He's a hater," Trump said during a San Diego rally last week. "His name is Gonzalo Curiel. He is not doing the right thing."

Trump also said Curiel "happens to be, we believe, Mexican, which is great. I think that's fine. You know what? I think the Mexicans are going to end up loving Donald Trump when I give all these jobs, OK?"

Muriel's parents are from Mexico but he was born in Indiana.

"Having a presidential candidate embroiled in litigation totally unrelated to the political system… that is what is so novel about this. And then you add to this the personal criticism," University of Pittsburgh law professor Arthur Hellman told the Post. "It's personal all the way, and that's what makes this different."

Added Indiana University law professor Charles Gardner Geyh, "There's a line between disagreement and sort of throwing the judiciary under the bus that I think is at issue here."
