As Texas’ AG, Abbott’s office had opened a civil investigation into Trump U’s “possibly deceptive trade practices” in the state, but agreed to quietly drop the case after the organization agreed to leave Texas. Abbott’s office built a $5.4 million settlement case against Trump’s organization for duping Texan Trump U students out of $2.6 million, but the case was never filed.
John Owens, former deputy director of Abbott’s Consumer Protection Division, alleges the decision was purely political that left Texas consumers “high and dry” with no recourse:
“The decision not to sue him was political. Had [Trump] not been involved in politics to the extent he was at the time, we would have gotten approval. Had he been just some other scam artist, we would have sued him.”
