After six years of litigation, it all comes down to this.

On Thursday afternoon, some 3,700 claimants, scores of attorneys and perhaps even the president himself will be awaiting the ruling to come from a San Diego courtroom in what could be the final chapter in the Trump University legal saga.

Days after winning the presidency in November, Donald Trump settled three class-action lawsuits over his real estate seminar program. Since then, attorneys for the plaintiffs and others have been working to make sure as many class members as possible have the opportunity to get a slice of the $25 million deal.

While roughly 3,730 Trump University students have asked to take part in the settlement, the objections of two people from Florida could prove to be a roadblock to U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel granting final approval.

“Not only that, but in using my reserve monies for this program that I believed in wholeheartedly, I no longer had my cushion in paying my own bills that subsequently led me to incurring late fees reporting on my credit report,” she wrote.

Carolyn Class wrote to the lawyers “firmly” objecting to the settlement, saying she “definitely got her money’s worth” at a multi-day seminar in Annapolis, Md. “All of us received valuable information and we went in with our eyes opened. No one was forced to buy a mentorship. Besides all this hoop-la over Mr. Trump, there are many (so-called experienced real estate pros) giving seminars like this throughout the country,” she wrote.
