On Tuesday, May 14, 2013, Trump is expected to testify at federal court in Chicago where several of his companies have been named in a lawsuit filed by an 87-year-old investor who says she was lured into buying condos at his namesake Chicago skyscraper with promises of a profit-sharing deal that was later quietly withdrawn.
