A trial alleging fraud against Trump University is expected after a state judge declined to give a summary judgement on Tuesday, Politico reports.

New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office had sought the judgment from Judge Cynthia Kern.

Donald Trump's lawyer for the case, Jeffrey Goldman, said he was happy with the ruling.

"I think we will get a fair trial before a jury," he told reporters. "Why would the attorney general, who's actually representing the constituents of the state of New York, fear the state of constituents of New York determining whether or not he's right?"

Goldman said a trial most likely would be held in the fall of 2017.

Trump is the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, and when a reporter asked Goldman if he would like to go to trial during the campaign, he replied, "Preferably not."

Several former students have filed a separate class action case against Trump University, saying the series of seminars took their money, sometimes in the tens of thousands of dollars, but did not deliver Trump's real estate secrets from hand-picked experts as he promised in a promotional video.

Trump insists most students were happy with Trump University and says it received an "A" rating from the Better Business Bureau. The BBB counters that Trump University at one point had a "D-minus" rating, but currently has no rating because it is not accepting students.
