Trump in So. Fla. courtroom over failed hotel

Posted: Updated:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WSVN) -- Donald Trump took the stand in a Broward County courtroom, Monday morning, after being sued over his failed Trump International Hotel and Tower on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

Investors sued Trump to recover deposits paid ahead of time for units in the 24-story oceanfront hotel condominium.

Although nearly completed, the building was never finished and recently sold to new investors.

The plaintiffs feel they were misled.
