Activist Judge who Released Documents on Trump U Case – Awarded Scholarships to Illegals

On Tuesday Donald Trump attacked activist Judge Gonzalo Curiel, the anti-Trump judge who allowed a class action lawsuit to proceed against him, as a “hater.”

Judge Curiel was nominated by Barack Obama to serve on the US district court in Southern District of California in 2011.

Judge Gonzalo Curiel even awarded scholarships to illegal immigrants in San Diego in 2014.

Activist Judge Gonzalo Curiel issued an order Friday unsealing various records in the Trump University lawsuit.
Then on Tuesday he ordered records to be sealed again – after the liberal media picked over them.
The Politico reported:

U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel issued an order Friday unsealing various records in the suit, citing significant public interest in the matter, driven in part by Trump’s own public attacks on the judge.

However, on Tuesday evening, Curiel tried to roll back his earlier order. He said he had “mistakenly” listed some records to be released in full, when they were actually supposed to be edited or redacted to delete personal information like home addresses and personal emails.

Those records are now restricted again on the court’s docketing system, but they are clearly in the possession of numerous news organizations. For instance, a declaration from former Trump University events manager Corinne Summer was posted online by the New York Times, but is no longer available from the court.

“Instructors were trained to, and witnessed them, asking students during the $1,500 seminars to call their credit card companies and raise their credit limits two, three or four times so that they would be able to invest in real estate. They would tell students to max out their credit card because they would make their money back. They couldn’t raise their limit and use it the same day,” Summer wrote.

The judge told Trump’s lawyers to file redacted copies of the resealed documents by Thursday so they could again be made public by the court.
